July 17th, 1914: NY Giants 3, Pirates 1

7

If you need something to wash the taste of umpire Jerry Meals's clownish incompetence out of your mouth, you may enjoy a look back at what I believe to be the longest game in Pirates history. Both Bucs starter Babe Adams and Giants Hall of Famer Rube Marquard pitched 21-inning complete games, with Adams also setting an obscure record for most innings pitched in one game without allowing any walks, and Honus Wagner was ejected in the sixth after a bizarre play where he attempted to conceal a loose ball in his armpit while running the bases. At the time the game was played, it was the longest in terms of innings in the history of the National League. It was also fairly long in time elapsed, clocking in at a robust three hours and forty-two minutes from end to end.
