You don't see the things that happened in Philly last night too often. The Diamondbacks beat the Phillies 12-7 in 18 innings in a game that saw Arizona use nine pitchers and Philadelphia use 11. Each team used two starting pitchers (bringing one out of the bullpen in addition to the one that started the game). The Phillies put two position players, Casper Wells and John McDonald, on the hill. The game lasted seven hours and six minutes, starting at 7:05 PM and ending at 2:11 AM. The teams combined for 35 hits, 28 walks, 32 strikeouts, and 41 men left on base. And the best part is that they get to do it all over again today. Great times! PIC OF THE DAY John Buck prepares for impact at the dish (Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports) Game of the Night: White Sox 3, Rangers 2. A sixth inning two-run homer by Alex Rios against his former team gave Texas a 2-0 lead in Chicago, and with Yu Darvish on the hill, that lead looked pretty safe. Then in the bottom of the sixth, Darvish allowed a two-run homer to Adam Dunn to tie the game at a pair. Oh. Neither team could score with men on first and third in the seventh, but in the ninth against Tanner Scheppers, the White Sox broke through, putting men on second and third with one out for Josh Phegley, who singled home the winning run to give Chicago the victory. Pitching Lines of the Day: Chris Tillman and Jarrod Parker put on a pitching clinic in Oakland's 2-1 win in Baltimore, with Tillman allowing one run on three hits in eight innings, striking out nine and walking two, while Parker gave up one run on five hits in eight innings, striking out five and walking three. Jose Fernandez dazzled the Rockies in Miami's 3-0 win, allowing four hits over seven shutout innings, punching out eight without a walk. Max Scherzer outdueled Matt Harvey in Detroit's 3-0 win over the Mets, giving up three hits over six scoreless innings, striking out 11 and walking four. Shelby Miller topped Julio Teheran in the Cardinals' 6-2 win over Atlanta, allowing one run on three hits in seven innings, striking out six without a walk. Finally, Jon Lester got the Red Sox a 4-2 win in Los Angeles, giving up one run on three hits in 7 1/3, walking four and striking out six. Hitting Lines of the Night: Astros catcher Jason Castro continued his breakout year as Houston beat Toronto 8-5, going 3/3 with three runs, three RBI, a walk, a double, and two homers. Darwin Barney helped the Cubs edge the Padres 3-2, going 3/4 with two runs, two RBI, a double, and a homer. Evan Longoria sparked the Rays to a 4-2 win over the Yankees, going 3/4 with a double, a homer, and two RBI. Finally, there's the trio of Diamondbacks that played well in the marathon in Philly. Martin Prado went 3/9 with three runs, three RBI, a double, a homer, and a walk, Adam Eaton went 4/10 with two runs, two RBI, a double, and a triple, and Gerardo Parra went 5/9 with three RBI, a walk, and a double.
