The Reds and Phils are tied 4 all.  Reds are up 2 outs.  The Reds and Phils are known for close, toe to toe, no give ball games.  This was one of them. If nothing happens by the time I post this, I'm going to bed.Wink  Doesn't matter who wins it, it was a hell of a baseball game.
 
It's now the bottom of the 15th, goodnight.Big smile

I did indeed go to bed.  However the game went on for another 1 hour and 15 min.  The Phils won it on a sac. fly in the bottom of the 19th inning.
The Reds used 7 pitchers, the Phils used 9.  They had to move the shortstop to the pitchers mound, he was the only pitcher they had left.
 
The fun part is they get to do it all over again today at 1PM.

I got home from the hockey game at 11:30 last night. I stayed up to watch the rest of the game. I was severely disappointed that I was dumb enough to do that. Especially considering the outcome....

Dear Red, it seems you missed the last inning of a special game. The shortstop did a three and out, to win!

Just think if you had not gone to sleep, you could brag for years that you saw it live. But that has not stopped hundreds of thousands from claiming that they were in the stands when Wilt scored 100!

I have enough "special" games under my belt.  The strange thing was, I knew when I turned it off, that it was going to go on for at least another hour.
The last time I stayed up to watch an extended game it was a hockey match that went 5 overtimes.  I guess I don't have that kind of stamina anymore.Big smile
 
The special part of Wilson Valdez coming in from the infield to pitch wasn't immediately known. 
That game included infielder Wilson Valdez becoming the first player to start a game in the field and later earn the win as a pitcher since Babe Ruth on Oct. 1, 1921.
 
 
At least I can say I saw the first 15 innings.Big smile
 
Btw- the pitch total was 660 pitches.  I think that alone is a record.
