Wow! This post-season is producing some memorable games.
The San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals went 18 innings in Game 2 of the NLDS with the Giants winning 2-1. The Kansas City Royals aren't the only ones who can play the extra inning ball. At six hours and 23 minutes, this was the longest game in post-season history. In term of innings, it matches the 18 inning marathon between the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the 2005 NLDS which the Astros won on a home run by Chris Burke. Tim Hudson started that game for the Braves. He also started tonight's game for the Giants.
Hudson and Nats starter Jordan Zimmermann (fresh off his no-hitter) were locked in a pitcher's duel. After struggling for much of the second half, Hudson threw 7 1/3 innings giving up only one run on seven hits. That run came on a single by Nats third baseman Anthony Rendon.
