Dodgers beat Red Sox in record-shattering Game 3 of the World Series
LOS ANGELES, California — Game 3 of the World Series was one for the record books, not because of any one team or player, but because of how long it lasted.
The match-up between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox went 18 innings: shattering the record for the longest World Series game in history in both time and frames.
The Dodgers beat the Red Sox, thanks to a walk-off homer by Max Muncy in the 18th.
In total, Friday’s game went well into the early morning hours Saturday, lasting 7 hours and 20 minutes. That’s longer than the game time of the entire 1939 World Series, according to StatsbyStats.
Previously, the record for the longest World Series game in terms of innings was also held by the Dodgers, when they were based in Brooklyn in 1916. That year, they beat the Red Sox 2-1 in 14 innings.
In terms of total game time, the now-second-longest game was in 2005 between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros. The Sox won that game after five hours and 41 minutes of play.
Game 4 is tonight in L.A. The Red Sox lead the series 2-1.
