On Saturday, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the LA Dodgers 1-0 to take a 2-0 lead in the NLCS but it was Game 1 of the series on Friday that made history. The Cardinals won that game 3-2 in 13 innings making it the 12th longest game in MLB post season history. Game 3 is tonight.

Others games that went extra inning in the MLB post season:

The Houston Astros were involved in three of them, an 18 inning affair with the Atlanta Braves in 2005, which they won 7-6. They went 16 innings with the NY Mets in 1986 losing 3-2 and a 14 inning game with the Chicago White Sox in the 2005 World Series losing 2-0.

The NY Yankees were involved in three post season extra-inning games. In 2004 the Red Sox beat the Yankees 5-4 in 14 innings. NY went 13 innings with the Baltimore Orioles in 2012 and lost that game 2-1. In 2009 the Yankees went 13 with the LA Angels winning 4-3.

The Red Sox were involved in 3 of the longest games in post season history, winning against the Yankees in 2004 as mentioned above but they also played a World Series game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1916 that went 14 innings winning 2-1 as Babe Ruth was on the mound and got the win for Boston. In 1995 the Red Sox and Cleveland Indians went 13 innings as the Indians won on a Tony Pena homer in the bottom of the 13th.
