Curfew wins as Red Sox, Mariners tied up after 19

If there was any record in Fenway Park history that seemed safe it had to be the one for the longest game. The Red Sox and Yankees played for 18 innings on Sept. 5, 1927, and Boston won 12-11.

Tonight, the longest game played since the park opened in 1912 will be resumed in the 20th inning between the Red Sox and Seattle Mariners. The score will be 7-7, and who knows if the game will end quickly or if the Sox will try to upstage the 22-inning job in Pawtucket by their farmhands earlier this year.
