ASTROS TAKE PHILLIES AFTER 16 INNINGS
Wed, 25 Aug 2010 06:07 PM EDT

Most normal games go nine innings. Most normal games give each player a few innings, and that is it, as they are exhausted after those few. However, there was nothing normal about the game the Astros played against the Phillies on Tuesday. It went 16 innings, ending after the Astros took the lead in the 16th. The game ended 4-3. Everyone was exhausted after the performance, but Houston showed spectacular staying power. Football Spreads

The Phillies have played some wacky games this year, and have had mixed results in their longer games. On Tuesday, they just didn’t have it in them to take the win, despite having many opportunities to do so. In the end, Houston dominated and took a well-deserved win. Football Lines

It was such a long game that player taken out, and some unconventional measures had to be adopted. Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt ended up playing left field, the managers stretched their able bodied player to the max. It ended up costing them. In a game that lasted over 5 hours, each player was pressured to play to his full potential. It was the first time in 39 years that a pitcher has played left field for the Phillies. The last pitcher to do so was Bill Wilson on Aug. 6, 1971.

The Astros snuck the win past the Phillies. It was a case of sheer exhaustion that ended the ordeal for both teams. The Astros scored twice in the top of the 16th. It pushed them into the winning position, and then they finished it up with some quality pitching. Houston intentionally walked Chase Utley to bring up Oswalt, who grounded to third to end the game. The rest of the season shouldn’t be as tiring for these two teams. But this is baseball, and anything can happen in one of these games. Long games are the least wacky thing that can occur.
