Boston marathon: Blue Jays-Red Sox go to 19th inning
BOSTON (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays and Red Sox are holding their own Boston marathon.
The Blue Jays and Red Sox went to the 19th inning tied at 2-all early Wednesday. About 700 fans were left at Fenway Park.
This is the longest game in the majors since July 2016, when Cleveland beat Toronto 2-1 in 19 innings.
It was past 1 a.m. and the game had lasted almost six hours when the 19th inning began. Boston had used 12 pitchers, tying an American League record set a day earlier by the Los Angeles Angels. Toronto had used seven pitchers.
Toronto took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning. The AL East-leading Red Sox tied it on run-scoring groundouts by Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland.
