Not in terms of time elapsed from start to finish. Remember that the Yankees and Tigers took two days to begin their ALDS. But in terms of innings. See, there had been one extra-innings game already, but that game ended in the bottom of the tenth. In Texas today, we're off to the 11th.
And we're off to the 11th because there was nothing doing in the tenth for either team. The Rangers squandered a God damned golden scoring opportunity in the ninth, and then the next inning, Neftali Feliz and Jose Valverde stayed in and kept their respective opponents quiet.
Mike Adams is now on for the Rangers in relief of Feliz. And Valverde will presumably come out, having thrown 23 pitches, although I guess it's not out of the question that Jim Leyland could try to stretch him even further. His season high for pitches is 35.
