For only the second time in history, two MLB games on the same day went to at least 18 innings.

First, the Blue Jays beat the Rangers 4-3 in 18 innings, and then the Marlins beat the Mets 2-1 in 20.

Rajai Davis hit a walk-off single for Toronto in the bottom of the 18th to seal the win for the Rangers, who went 1-for-19 with runners in scoring position. The Blue Jays similarly struggled, at 2-for-17. According to ESPN, Saturday's game tied the record for the Blue Jays' longest game in franchise history.

This is the second time this year that the Marlins topped the Mets in a marathon game, winning 4-3 in 15 innings on April 29. Both teams were scoreless since the 4th inning, until the Marlins clinched the win in the 20th inning. Saturday's game also tied the Marlins' record for the longest game in franchise history.
