This Day in Twins History – Twins longest game

Munoz, PedroAugust 31, 1993 – The Minnesota Twins finally win the longest game in their history when Pedro Munoz hits a walk-off home run to lead off the bottom of the 22nd inning to beat Jason Grimsley and the Cleveland Indians 5-4 in 22 innings after playing ball for 6 hours and 17 minutes at the Metrodome. Twins rookie RHP Brett Merriman picks up his first big league win in his seventh big league game. Sadly for Merriman, that win turned out to be the only game he would win in the big leagues. According to some reports, there were only about 1,500 fans in the stands when Munoz crossed the plate at 1:22 AM on 9/1. I was home and stayed up to watch the entire game on TV. Don’t forget to check out the pitch counts in the box score provided below.
