David Eckstein's game-tying homer in the ninth was an afterthought by the time the Majors' longest game came to a close after 18 innings. The Friars rallied from down five to force extras, but they were held hitless from the 10th on and ran out of pitchers, forcing shortstop Josh Wilson to take the mound and the loss.
a-Flied out for Pena, R in the 9th. b-Flied out for Rauch in the 11th. c-Grounded out for Vasquez, E in the 13th.
