In case you missed it last night, the Reds and Phillies played a 19-inning game. Philadelphia pulled off a 5-4 victory, with infielder Wilson Valdez earning the win after playing second base for the previous 18 innings. He retired Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Carlos Fisher (he also hit Scott Rolen with a pitch). How rare was this feat? Valdez is the first player to start a game in the field and then win the game as a pitcher since Babe Ruth did it in 1921. Pictures and video can be found here.
