The Lexington Legends played a 21-inning game over two days and won

The Lexington Legend’s latest win took was so long, it took two days to complete.

First pitch between the Legends and Delmarva Shorebirds went off at 7:04 p.m. Thursday night and ended almost 24 hours later in the 21st inning, the Legends coming home with a 7-6 win.

Completing 20 innings Thursday night, play between the Legends and Shorebird was stalled a little after 1 a.m. due to rain. Play picked back up in the top of the 21st inning Friday night at 6:05 p.m. The game ended soon after thanks to a home run from Marten Gasparini in the 21st inning to give Lexington the winning run.

For both the Legends and Shorebirds, 21 innings is a team record for longest game played. The game is also the longest game played in the South Atlantic League this season.

A 21-inning game ought to add some fuel to the fire for the “baseball takes too long to play” crowd.
