The Rockies get the last laugh, however: They beat the Red Sox 5-4 in 11 innings despite striking out 24 times. Five players struck out three times. But Mark Reynolds' two-out single drove in the winning run and the Rockies snap Boston's five-game win streak. Baseball is weird.

According to the Cubs, this is now the club's longest-ever home game (by innings) against the Brewers. They played a 14-inning affair at Wrigley Field on Sept. 18, 1999. Milwaukee won that one even though Chicago's Sammy Sosa hit his 60th home run of the season in that contest.
