Here’s a few notes about the Diamondbacks early morning 8-7  win over the Dodgers in 15 innings.

-This was the longest game in the history of the Diamondbacks at Chase Field (5 hours and 45 mins.)

-530 pitches were thrown between the two teams(323 were strikes)

-7 times the Diamondbacks lineup would get to the plate 

-12,932 Churro Dogs were consumed (just kidding)

-Paul Goldschmidt would see 35 pitches 

-18 walks were issued between the two teams

-The two starting pitchers both wore number 99. The first time that has happened in the history of major league baseball according to Baseball Reference.

-The game tying home run by Chris Owings with two out in the bottom of the 9th was the second three-run shot in the history of the franchise in that situation. Mark Reynolds had the other one in 2008 v the New York Mets.
