Cleveland Guardians and Rays managed to pull off four wild stats

With both teams making it to the fifteenth inning, the last night’s game is now the longest-ever postseason game in the history of both franchises. Both the teams were scoreless till the moment Oscar Gonzalez came and homered. Not only this, another postseason record for combined strikeouts got made. In total, there were 39 strikeouts, out of which, Guardians were responsible for 20 of them. 

The pitchers combined for a 0.31 ERA while two players joined the trio, which has managed to get the platinum sombreros. Having a platinum sombrero means a pitcher has five strikeouts in a game. That trio includes George Pipgras (1932), Reggie Sanders (1995), and Harrison Bader (2020). Whereas, the two pitchers who joined this trio are Guardians second baseman Andrés Giménez and Rays outfielder Jose Siri.
