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.
Boston manager Alex Cora pulled starting pitcher Rick Porcello out of a solid performance after just 4 1/3 innings, a move that came back to haunt the Red Sox in the longest game in World Series history.
