How Dodgers Fans Survived the Longest World Series Game in Baseball History

1:01 AM PDT on October 27, 2018

[dropcap size=big]B[/dropcap]y the time the 17th inning rolled through with no break in the 2-2 tie since the 8th, L.A. and Boston fans were gnawing on their paws, drunk-posting with glee, and sending messages into the depths of the Internet pleading for the interminable game to come to a close.

In the end, the Dodgers prevailed, 3-2. Max Muncy hit a homer into left-center in the bottom of the 18th, electrifying Mary Hart and everyone else who was still watching. The game lasted 7 hours and 20 minutes, the longest ever in the sport's world championship series, which dates to 1903. No World Series game had ever gone past the 14th inning.

There was also 14th inning stretch, ps — unprecedented. Manager Dave Roberts and players remarked after the game that Dodger Stadium was still largely full 'til Muncy's walk-off home-run.

Here is how L.A. Twitter coped:

The Dodgers and the Red Sox face off for Game 4 at Dodger Stadium today at 5:15 pm, or about 16 hours after Game 3 ended. Boston leads the 2018 series 2-1.

The Dodgers are making their second straight championship appearance; L.A. lost to the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series, and have won their division six years in a row.
