The Padres/Rockies are scoreless in the top of the 14th inning in San Diego. Jake Peavy threw eight shutout innings with 11 K's and his ERA stands at a stellar 1.20 after four starts, but unfortunately for him Jeff Francis threw seven shutout innings and neither team has yet to cross the plate through 13 innings. What a game. Pitching in Petco Park must be a pitchers dream.

Finally, a run. Colorado loaded the bases with one out but Garrett Atkins popped out to SS for the second out. Next batter is Brad Hawpe...he falls behind 1-2 and it looks like the Padres may escape the jam but he worked it to 3-2 and drew a walk. 1-0 Rockies. Next batters pops out.

1-0 heading to the bottom of the 14th. I'd like to see the Padres tie this game up; I'm in the mood for more baseball and I'm not ready to go to bed yet.

And Colorado just scored the first run of the game on a bases loaded walk. What a kick to the crotch if your a Padres fan at that game, sit there for 14 innings to probably lose on a bases loaded walk 1-0.

The Padres strand the bases loaded. McAnulty grounded into a force out, runner out at home for the second out. Colt Morton ran the count 3-1 against Manny Corpas but grounded out to end the inning.

1-1 after 14. This is a game I'd love to be at.

I personally thought it should've been ball four when the count was 3-1. I've been following this game for awhile I've got to be in class at 9 am couple more innings of this is about all I can take.

To be completely honest, if I'm the Rockies at this point, I'm probably conceding a run somehow and taking the rest of the night off.

Watching Jim Edmonds try to bunt his way on with 2 outs and nobody on was pretty funny :laugh:

"don't you have homes?"
"is there any curfew on games; we are looking into that"

26 innings... 33 (32?) in AAA

I was watching this last night... decided to DVR the rest and watch in the AM.. that was in the 14th inning.

So I put it on and watched.... I just saw online that it went past 20... and right as I read that a Padre got thrown out trying to stretch a 2b into a 3b with no outs.

And I thought.... how can I blame that one on the Reds front office.

What a game. What is it with the Padres and Rockies? When those two teams get together and play they always battle it out and go extras. You may remember the one game playoff for the wildcard spot last season in which the Rockies won in 14 innings. I still think that's one of the top two or three games I've seen in my lifetime. The Astros and Diamondbacks (the next opponents for the Rockies and Padres) have to be smiling right now after all those innings piled up by the relievers.

Three seventh-inning stretches later, Rockies top Padres in 22 innings

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Let's play 22!

Colorado and San Diego did just that Thursday night and into Friday morning, slogging through a 22-inning game that was the longest in the majors in nearly 15 years.

The Long Haul

It's not the first time a baseball game has gone extra innings, but 22 or more is a rarity. A breakdown of the longest games in MLB history:
Innings How many
26 Brooklyn/Boston -- May 20, 1920
25 2 times
24 3 times
23 2 times
22 9 times

The Rockies finally won 2-1, with Troy Tulowitzki's two-out RBI double bringing in Willy Taveras with an unearned run in nearly empty Petco Park. A game that lasted 6 hours, 16 minutes was decided by an unearned run.

Reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy threw the game's first pitch at 7:05 p.m. The game didn't end until 1:21 a.m., when Padres pitcher Glendon Rusch took a called third strike. Colorado's Yorvit Torrealba, who caught all 22 innings, wearily pumped a fist in celebration.

"It's tough to keep your head into it and put together good at-bats and be into every pitch," Tulowitzki said. "We were talking about how our legs were hurting out there. It's tough to stand on your feet for 22 innings and keep moving."

Manager Clint Hurdle noticed that his players were a little tight.

"This was a good game to get outside yourself," Hurdle said. "About the 16th inning, I said, 'Hey boys, no matter what's in front of us, there's a world of people out there who've got harder rows to hoe than we do. No matter what happens the rest of the night, have some fun with this thing.' "

His players listened. It just took them six more innings to score a run.

"It's definitely better to win in a 22-inning game than lose, I'll tell you that," Tulowitzki said.

It was the longest game since Aug. 31, 1993, when Minnesota beat Cleveland 5-4 in 22 innings. It was also the longest game in Rockies history and in the 5-year history of Petco Park. It was the longest by innings for the Padres, and one minute short of matching the longest by time for San Diego.

There's something about these two teams and extra innings. On Oct 1., Colorado rallied past the Padres for a 9-8 win in 13 innings in the wild-card tiebreaker game.

There was a little bit of everything, but far too little offense on Thursday. There were planes to catch -- The Rockies open a series Friday in Houston and the Padres will be at Arizona -- but the game was scoreless until the 14th inning. Wouldn't you know it, each team scored a run that inning to prolong it.

Rockies-Padres Fast Facts

Time of game: 6 hours, 16 minutes (ended at 4:21 ET)

658 total pitches, 42 players (15 pitchers)

One catcher per team played

Scoreless through 13 innings

Longest game in Rockies history (previous long was 18 innings on June 18, 2006)

Longest game in Padres history (previous long was 21 innings, done twice)
-- ESPN Research

In the 22nd, Taveras reached on a two-out grounder when shortstop Khalil Greene's throw pulled 6-foot-7 first baseman Tony Clark off the bag. Taveras stole second and took third on catcher Josh Bard's throwing error. Tulowitzki doubled to left-center of Glendon Rusch (0-1), the seventh Padres pitcher. Taveras set a club record with 10 at-bats.

Only a fraction of the crowd of 25,984 was around to see the final out.

Some Padres players amused themselves in the 18th by taping up the head of a stuffed ram and placing it on the front bench in the dugout. After the 18th, shortly after midnight, the sprinklers came on in the Park at the Park, a grassy knoll beyond the bleachers in right-center.

There was a seventh-inning stretch, a 14-inning stretch and finally, a 21st-inning stretch.

Greg Maddux had his glove on in the dugout in the 22nd. It was wishful thinking, because he's scheduled to start Friday night at Arizona, when he'll try for his 350th career victory.

The stadium's cleanup crew sat listlessly in the far upper deck as the game dragged on, knowing they were going to be working into the wee hours.

There were 658 pitches, by 15 pitchers. There were numerous foul balls. In the 14th inning, a man in the second deck caught a foul ball and yelled, "That's it, I'm going home!" as other fans cheered. He stayed until the end.

"That was an incredible baseball game," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It will go down as one that everybody who was here, will never forget it."

San Diego's Josh Bard, who also caught all 22 innings, was angry.

"You give up two runs in 22 innings and you should win," he said.

"It's disappointing that we played so long and didn't get a win," right fielder Brian Giles said. "Hopefully we'll play nine tomorrow."

Had he ever played a game that long?

"Just in softball," Giles said.

The previous longest game this season by innings went 15 innings, on April 9, when the Cubs beat the Pirates 6-4 at Pittsburgh. The previous longest in time was 4 hours, 53 minutes, Toronto at Texas on April 16. Texas won 7-5 in 14 innings.

Kip Wells (1-0), the eighth Rockies pitcher, pitched four innings.

Padres pitchers tied a team record with 20 strikeouts and their Rockies counterparts also set a record with 17 punchouts. Colorado stranded 16 runners and San Diego 14.

The Rockies went ahead 1-0 in the top of the 14th inning when Brad Hawpe drew a bases-loaded walk off Kevin Cameron to bring in Taveras.

The Padres tied it in the bottom of the inning when Bard's bases-loaded single off Manny Corpas brought in Kevin Kouzmanoff, aboard on a leadoff single. Tony Clark was forced at home for the second out and rookie Colt Morton -- San Diego's last position player -- grounded to third in his fourth big league at-bat. It was Corpas' second blown save in five chances.

The Padres blew a big chance in the 13th. Paul McAnulty led off with a line drive into the right-field corner but was thrown out trying to stretch a double into a triple. Left-hander Randy Wolf, who beat the Rockies 6-0 on Tuesday night, followed with a pinch-hit single to center field but was stranded.

Three Rockies pitchers retired 23 straight Padres batters from the second to the 10th inning.

Peavy and Rockies lefty Jeff Francis started a pitcher's duel that the bullpens continued.

Peavy was trying to win his first four starts of a season for the first time. He struck out a season-high 11 in eight innings, the 25th time in his career he's reached double digits. He allowed four hits, walked three and lowered his ERA to 1.20.

Francis kept the Padres scoreless for seven innings while allowing three hits, striking out seven and walking one.

After Peavy's broken-bat, bloop single down the right-field line with two outs in the second, Francis retired 16 straight batters.

Brian Fuentes pitched a perfect eight and Taylor Buchholz a perfect ninth. Buchholz retired pinch-hitter Jim Edmonds leading off the 10th before allowing Greene's single.

Game notes
The 13 full scoreless innings were the most in the big leagues since July 20, 2004, at Oakland, when the A's beat Toronto 1-0 in 14. It was the longest for the Padres since July 15, 1994, when they won 2-1 at the New York Mets in 14. It was 0-0 after 13. ... The Padres have gone 94 innings without a home run.

This is kind of the crux of what I love about baseball. Life has to stop for it, as long as the players force it to. The absence of a clock kind of gets to me, seriously.
