The Twins longest games in terms of innings played

The Minnesota Twins have played a lot of games in the 55 years that they have called Minnesota home but only 33 of those games have gone 15 innings or longer. In those 33 games they have a 17-16 record. The three longest games that have lasted 20 inning or more have all been played at home, either at the Met or the Metrodome. I am sure you got your money’s worth if you attended any of those games.

The Twins longest road game was at Yankee Stadium back in 1976 and this might shock you I know but the Twins lost 5-4 on a walk-off single by Mickey Rivers. Just hearing the name Mickey Rivers brings back all kinds of memories, what a character he was.
