Yesterday (or today, for some), the Giants and Nationals played an 18 inning game that lasted 6 hours and 23 minutes. It tied the postseason record for longest game in terms of innings, but it set a record for the amount of time played. The previous record was "held" by the 2005 playoff game between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros, which lasted 5 hours and 50 minutes.
What's the new bit of baseball trivia? Pitcher Tim Hudson started both games. He started for the Braves back in 2005 and the Giants yesterday. Things worked out better for his team (and for him) this time around.
