What Had Happened Was: 4/14/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
A game that started with an anything-you-can-do-I-can-do-better pace slowed toward the late innings in the Miami Marlins’ game against the New York Mets. The result was a 16-inning contest, the longest in the five-year history of Marlins Park (five hours and 38 minutes), that went into the wee hours of Friday morning.
The visitors earned a 9-8 victory, as Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud had his career-best fourth hit, a leadoff home run in the top of the 16th inning. D’Arnaud tallied four RBIs to help New York win its fifth game in a row.
For the second time in three nights, Yoenis Cespedes had a multi-homer game. It was the longest game New York has played since it went 18 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on July 19, 2015, at Busch Stadium.
