The Red Sox made history when they came back from a 3-0 deficit to win the fourth game of the ALCS against the Yankees 4-3.But how common is it for Major League Baseball (MLB) games to end with a score of 0-0? If a pitcher has a perfect game but the score is 0-0, what happens? And what if the game is tied at the end of nine innings?Modern baseball has seen its fair share of games without any runs scored. However, this doesn't take into account games that reach extra innings and then both teams score. The record for most innings played in a single professional baseball game is 33, which occurred in 1981 in a minor league match between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings. The longest game by innings in the major leagues was a 1-1 draw between the Boston Braves and Brooklyn Robins in 26 innings at Braves Field in Boston on May 1, 1920. The longest baseball game in history dates back decades, but things are quite different in October.
This format has also been adopted by the European leagues, such as Division de Honor (Spain), the Italian Baseball League, and Honkbal Hoofdklasse (Netherlands). During spring training in MLB, most games are played only during the nine regular innings; if the game is tied after nine innings, the game ends and the tie remains. In this article, we'll explore the record books and analyze the longest baseball game in history throughout MLB season, MLB postseason, and even college baseball. We'll also look at what happens when a pitcher has a perfect game but the score is 0-0.
