Marlins-Mets go 20 innings, Texas-Blue Jays go 18
Question of the Day
It was the longest game by far in the history of Citi Field, which opened in 2009, and it matched the longest in Marlins history _ a 7-6 loss to the Cardinals in 20 innings on April 27, 2003.
“The whole team spirit was up,” said Brantly, who finished with four hits. “We were still having fun in the dugout and still cracking jokes and keeping the energy high. … Still had enough energy to string some hits together and get that run.”
A scattered crowd of 20,338 had dwindled perhaps into the hundreds by the time the stadium sound system played Chuck Berry’s “No Particular Place To Go,” not long after the 14th-inning stretch.
Some of the fans who remained chanted “Let’s Go Home!” as the Mets came to bat in the 17th.
“In a situation like that,” Brantly said, “the team that can keep their enthusiasm up the most usually ends up being the victor.”
