MC2 Post 2052 Did You Feel IT? 4.5 Quake in Big Bear Lake CA at 9:10 am

It was the Dodgers' longest game, inning-wise,




By the 15th inning, as Tuesday turned into Wednesday, Vin Scully announced, "Tomorrow is no longer another day. It has arrived."



By the top of the 16th inning, the Dodgers' starting pitcher, Brett Anderson, was shaving the paint off a baseball bat in the dugout.

By the bottom of the 16th, a pitcher, the Colorado Rockies' Jason Gurka, was playing right field.

A long, weird night had to end eventually for the Dodgers and Rockies. It just "didn't feel like it there for a while," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said.



The merciful end came, at last, when Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado hit a 95-mph Mat Latos pitch into the bleachers for a home run in the top of the 16th. In the bottom of the inning, Ronald Torreyes struck out with a runner on third, and the Rockies won the game 5-4, five hours and 23 minutes after it started.

 

It was the Dodgers' longest game, inning-wise, since a 17-inning game in 2007. The teams combined to use 58 total players, a major-league record. They used 24 pitchers, also a major-league record. The Rockies alone used 13, a major-league record.

 

The Dodgers used 11 pitchers and 28 players total, both franchise records.

From:    http://www.cnbc.com





Disney is turning its launch of new "Star Wars" merchandise—a full 3½ months before the release of "The Force Awakens"—into a new kind of retail holiday.

 


Dubbing the Sept. 4 merchandise launch "Force Friday" (the "fourth" be with you, get it?), Disney has a range of major retailers—and YouTube stars from its Maker Studios acquisition—on board to appeal to collectors and a new generation of fans
