Marathon Men Sox Smite Evil Empire, 6-5 In 19

Betts Knocks In Game-Winner In 19th Inning
In the longest game (by time) in Red Sox history, your 2015 Carmine Hose outlasted The Evil Ones, 6-5 in 19 innings last night/this morning. A full recap of this contest would need an encyclopedia—not a blog—so we will simply state that Boston blew four leads before emerging victorious. The six-hour and forty-nine minute marathon ended when Mookie Betts knocked in the game-winner with a sacrifice fly in the 19th. Previously, Betts had struck out in the ninth, 13th, 15th and 17th. We'd go into more detail for you—but, frankly, we're too tired—and today's game is already underway.
