Game 3 was the 12th World Series game to go 12 innings and the fourth World Series Game to go 14 innings. It is the only World Series game to go 18 innings. Here are the longest World Series games in history by innings played:
2018 Game 3: Red Sox vs. Dodgers still playing in the 18th inning.
1916 Game 2: (Brooklyn) Dodgers beat Red Sox 2-1 in 14 innings.
2005 Game 3: White Sox beat Astros 7-5 in 14 innings.
2015 Game 1: Royals beat Mets 5-4 in 14 innings.
Furthermore, Game 3 is also the longest World Series game by time of game and it's not close either. Game 3 is already over the eight-hour mark as of this writing.
Here are the longest World Series games in history by time of game:
2018 Game 3: Red Sox vs. Dodgers in eight hours and counting.
2005 Game 3: White Sox vs. Astros in five hours and 41 minutes.
2017 Game 5: Dodgers vs. Astros in five hours and 17 minutes.
2015 Game 1: Royals vs. Mets in five hours and nine minutes.
2000 Game 1: Yankees vs. Mets in four hours and 51 minutes.
Does anyone care about pace of play during a very exciting World Series game? Didn't think so.
Quite a game. Eovaldi just served up a homer to Muncy to cinch the win for LA.
Ended at 3:30 in Boston.
Muncy almost ended it three innings earlier...he saw Eovaldi really well tonight...he was the only one.
The funniest thing was though in his postgame interview he gave away that Rich Hills (tomorrows starter) nickname is Dick Mountain...
Didn’t know what the D stood for in D. Mountain.
Richard = Dick; Hill = Mountain
Damn funny. Ill never watch Hill again without that coming to mind.
A long night for the Bostonians.
In the way of so many baseball nicknames though, the meaning of that nickname and how he got it would be funny as hell — but would not meet broadcast TV standards.
A ha. Thanks.
I didn’t know. All I knew was his nick name was D Hill.
As in Climb D. Mountain.
“A long night for the Bostonians.”
In more ways than one.
“I didnt know. All I knew was his nick name was D Hill.”
I mean D Mountain.
The first ever World Series doubleheader.
That was a big part of what made it so funny...National TV interview after his big walk off, and Muncy is going on about how they have Dick Mountain going tomorrow and how great Dick Mountain has been lately. Listening to it I thought WTF whats he talking about!
“The first ever World Series doubleheader.”
Dodgers actually get two wins for the 18 inning game so it’s tied 2-2
(That’s not original with me. Eric Davis said it)
The bars closed at 1:30am when they were required to throw everyone out.
My local news is on Fox now.
