Mariners Beat A's in Longest MLB Game of the Season

By  | 

Jose Lopez blooped an RBI single in the 15th inning and the Seattle Mariners, after pulling off a late rally, beat the Oakland Athletics 8-7 Sunday in the longest game in the majors this season.

Ichiro Suzuki's two-out single in the 13th capped a three-run comeback for the Mariners. A throwing error by Dana Eveland (1-2) set up the winning run.

The game lasted 5 hours, 2 minutes. It was the longest game by innings and time in 2009, the Elias Sports Bureau said.
