LET'S PLAY THREE!:

Nats' Farm Team Goes the Distance (Associated Press, May 7, 2006)

The Washington Nationals' New Orleans Zephyrs farm team and the Nashville Sounds tied a Class AAA Pacific Coast League record for the longest game, going 24 innings over two nights before the Zephyrs broke a tie to win 5-4 Saturday night.

The game, which started at 7 p.m. Friday, was the third 24-inning game in the league's history and lasted a little more than eight hours. After 14 scoreless innings, Wiki Gonzalez singled to score Chris Schroder. Nashville went down in order in the bottom of the inning to end the game.
