Good Job Mets

Yesterday the New York Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals with a score of 2 to 1 -- and it only took them seven hours!

Technically it took 6 hours and 53 minutes in a game that lasted twenty innings. You can read a full summary of this now-legendary game here.

This was the longest Mets game since a 24 innings game on Sept. 11, 1974. Ironically this was another Mets/Cardinals match which the Mets lost 4-3. Yesterday's game was the fourth-longest in Mets history and, according to the summary, measured by time it was the third-longest Mets game ever.

And we won. So congrats Mets, let's hope you wear all your opponents out going forward.
