On Friday night, the Yankees lost 6-5 against the Red Sox. And it took them 19 innings and over "seven" hours to do so.

That's right. A stadium packed with both in-the-flesh and a lot of invisible Yankees fans stayed in the Bronx past 2 AM just to see the their team take an L. But at least they got to be a part of history by witnessing the longest game (time-wise) in Yankees history, right?

Nah. There was a 16-minute power outage at the bottom of the 12th inning. This sets the actual game length at 6:49 instead of over seven hours, making it the longest in Red Sox history but the second-longest in Yankees history. New York played and beat the Tigers in a June 24, 1962 game that lasted seven hours.

But anyways, fans waited six hours and 49 minutes to see New York lose. That can't be worse than being in that locker room knowing you have another game against the Red Sox tomorrow later at 1:05 PM. Let's go Yankees! Dun, dun, dun-dun-dun.
