In a game that seemed to never want to end, the New York Mets find a way to end the saga.
The Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 in the second-longest game of the season. The 18-inning game lasted around five-hours and 55 minutes and was second to only the 19-inning game in April between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.
The game was scoreless through 12 innings before a Kevin Plawecki RBI single opened the scoring column in the top of the 13th. The Cardinals answered in the bottom half of the 13th when Kolten Wong hit a game-tying solo home run, providing more bonus baseball for another 5 innings. Finally (and thankfully), a sacrifice fly from Ruben Tejada put the Mets ahead 2-1, and Curtis Granderson subsequently scored on a sacrifice bunt by Eric Campbell.
