The Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays combined for the longest game, time-wise, in both franchises’ histories. The six hour, 54-minute, 18-inning game that ended on David DeJesus' single to right off Orioles reliever Bud Norris gave the Rays a 5-4 win.
It also kept the Rays in one of the wild-card spots while the Orioles dropped to 2 ½ games behind the second wild card.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
