Yankees-Cubs heading to 17th inning

CHICAGO (AP) The New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs are tied at 4 heading to the 17th inning in the majors' longest game of the season by innings.

The teams have combined for 43 strikeouts, tying the major league record for any game.

Chicago trailed 4-1 before it rallied in the ninth against Aroldis Chapman, who helped the Cubs win the World Series last year for the first time since 1908. Albert Almora Jr. and Javier Baez each singled in a run before Chapman hit slumping slugger Anthony Rizzo on his left wrist with the bases loaded on his 36th pitch, forcing home the tying run.

The majors' previous longest game of the season was the Mets' 9-8 victory over the Marlins in 16 innings on April 13.
