This has become an extra special season in Major League Baseball.

MLB has set a record for the most extra-inning games in a year, breaking the mark Tuesday night when a pair of games ran long.

There have been 239 extra-inning games so far, STATS said. That tops the 237 from 2011.

Toronto beat Baltimore 3-2 in 10 innings to break the record, then Arizona topped San Diego 2-1 in 12 innings.
