Fans of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox were able to watch many innings of free baseball as the Yankees and Red Sox played 19 innings over approximately seven hours.
The Red Sox ultimately came out on top, 6-5, after outfielder Mookie Betts hit a sacrifice fly to score shortstop Xander Bogaerts.
The record of 26 innings in a game remains firm, which occurred in 1920 between the Brooklyn Robins and Boston Braves and ended in a tie.
Although the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry is not at its most heated with the Yankees in rebuilding mode, this game helped keep the feud animated.
The Yankees forced the game into extra innings after third baseman Chase Headley hit the game-tying home run after the Yankees had rallied from a 3-0 deficit.
In the 16th inning, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz and Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira exchanged home runs.
After Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit an RBI single in the 18th inning, the Yankees once again refused to go away as outfielder Carlos Beltran tied it with a double.
After Betts gave the Red Sox another lead in the 19th inning, Garrett Jones hit into a double play to end the game after outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury led off the inning with a single.
