THE WORLD'S LONGEST
WORLD SERIES GAME

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest MLB World Series game?

Inning wise, on October 09, 1916, game 2 of the World Series took 14 innings before the Boston Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Robins  2 - 1.

Babe Ruth was the winning pitcher, pitching all 14 innings.

The longest MLB World Series game, time wise, was game 1 of the 2000 World Series, held on October 21 when the New York Yankees defeated the New York Mets 4 - 3 in the 12th inning after 4 hours 51 minutes until...

2005 seems to be a record year for long games and the Houston Astros seem to be involved in many of those long games. On October 09, 2005 they participated in the MLB's longest playoff game.

On October 24 2005, (The game actually ended on the 25th), the Houston Astros lost game 3 to the Chicago White Sox 7 - 5. Chicago broke the tie in the top of the 14th on a home run by Geoff Blum with 2 out.  Houston, then managed to give the White Sox a 2 run lead with a bases loaded walk. Houston did not manage to bring in any runs in the bottom of the 14th and the world's longest MLB World Series game was over after a record 5 hours 41 minutes.

The game also tied the longest as far as innings go.

Now if you want to count rain delays, Game 5 of the 2008 World Series, which began on October 27, 2008, takes the cake. After taking a 3-1 lead in games, on the brink of the World Series title, The Philadelphia Phillies jumped out to a quick lead while the rain pounded down, with the game being official, there was no way it would be called to give the Phillies the title, but luckily in the 6th inning the Tampa Bay Rays managed to tie the score up at 2 runs each and the game was suspended.

The game finally resumed on October 29, 2008 with the Philadelphia Phillies winning 4 - 3 and capturing the 2008 World Series title.
