Extra special season: MLB sets record with 239 extra-inning games this year

This has become an extra special season in Major League Baseball.

MLB has set a record for the most extra-inning games in a year, breaking the mark Tuesday night when a pair of games ran long.

There have been 239 extra-inning games so far, STATS said. That tops the 237 from 2011.

Toronto beat Baltimore 3-2 in 10 innings to break the record, then Arizona topped San Diego 2-1 in 12 innings.

The Diamondbacks also set a major league record for most extra innings played in a season with 79. They surpassed the 76 played by Minnesota in 1969.

Arizona has played the most extra-inning games this year, going 17-7.
