Here are just a few of the notable numbers and events from the game:• The game ran 6 hours, 49 minutes, making it the longest game by time in Red Sox history.

Steven Wright, the ninth pitcher for the Red Sox, pitched the final five innings to pick up the victory.• The teams left a total of 33 runners on base.• New York first baseman Mark Texeira, who turned 35 at midnight, celebrated his birthday a few minutes later by belting a game-tying home run in the bot
