Data via the Baseball-Reference.com Play Index

The Giants and Nationals set a playoff record with an 18-inning thriller on Saturday. Their 18-innings matched the previous postseason high, set by the Braves and Astros nine years ago (though theirs was cut two outs short by Chris Burke’s walk-off homer), but by time of game, San Francisco and Washington bested the old record by 33 minutes.

Bonus: Tim Hudson, the Giants’ starting pitcher on Saturday, also started for the visiting Braves in 2005:
