By the numbers: Dodgers win historic Game 3 of the World Series on walk-off HR

Game 3 of the World Series kept going and going and going. It finally ended around 3:30 a.m. EST. Here are some of the key numbers from the game, won by the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2, on a walk-off home run by Max Muncy:

2: Performances of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" by the stadium organist. It was played during the seventh-inning stretch and the second seventh-inning (14th inning) stretch.


Never before had a playoff game lasted this long. Never before had the Dodgers experienced a victory quite like their 3-2 walkoff over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of the World Series, an 18-inning agony that ended with sweet relief when Max Muncy launched a solo home run.

3: Home runs (Red Sox — Jackie Bradley Jr. in 8th inning; Dodgers — Joc Pederson in 3rd inning; Max Muncy in 18th inning)
