Muncy's Walk-Off Caps Longest World Series Game

Muncy's Walk-Off Caps Longest World Series Game

Max Muncy ended the longest World Series game ever with a leadoff home run in the 18th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted the Boston Red Sox 3-2 early Saturday to pull within 2-1.

The game stretched past midnight on the West Coast, and Dodger Stadium recognized it by putting “12:00” on the scoreboard in massive numbers, drawing a cheer. Most of the crowd has stayed.

The Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers were tied 2-all after nearly seven hours and more than 500 pitches in Game 3.

During the bottom of the 15th, the game surpassed the Giants’ 18-inning, 6-hour and 23-minute win over Washington in the 2014 NL division series. And no World Series matchup had ever gone past the 14th.
