The previous 2013 record for longest game was Kerwin Danley's 597-pitch Angels-A's game on April 29. That game lasted just six hours and 32 minutes and featured 372 strikes (62.3%).
|PFX: Fagan called the 18th inning at 100% accuracy (32 callable pitches)|
Maligned by Phillies fans for allegedly "squeezing" regular right fielder Casper Wells during his pitching assignment in the top of the 18th inning, Pitch f/x confirms that Clint Fagan finished strong, carrying an accuracy rating of 100 percent through the final inning of play (32 Correct Ball/Strike Calls out of 32 Callable Pitches = 100%). This figure includes both the top and bottom halves of the frame.
Therefore, it is a logically indisputable fact that Fagan has at the least tied, if not set, the MLB record for highest accuracy by a home plate umpire during an 18th inning.
