It's a lot harder for Dodger fans to arouse suspicion over your hand when you keep it clenched.
Isn't it, Jake?
Then again, any "dirt" marks would have been long forgotten by the time the Padres and Rockies got done tumblin' for 22 innings last night/early this morning.
After the jump, a few facts from Colorado's 2-1 win:
• The game started at 7:05 p.m. It ended at 1:21 a.m. (PDT, of course).
• It was the longest game since Aug. 31, 1993, when Minnesota beat Cleveland 5-4 in 22 innings.
• The game was scoreless until the 14th inning.
• Three Rockies pitchers retired 23 straight San Diego batters between the 2nd and 10th innings.
• There were 659 pitches by 15 different pitchers. Greg Maddux had his glove on in the dugout in the 22nd inning, but his services weren't needed. He'll start tonight in Arizona.
• The teams combined for 37 strikeouts (Padres pitchers threw 20) and a combined 30 runners were stranded on the basepaths.
