Extra innings not a bargain

Been away for awhile, but this time of year there’s more MLB action than NFL. And one thing with baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night Colorado Rockies fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one. Unfortunately, the final outcome was two games' worth of disappointment: Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Rockies 1.

Rare as this is, there were, in fact, two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. In the other one, the Chicago Cubs finally beat the Houston Astros 8-6.
