The New York Yankees finished the first homestand in "The Palace" last night in what was supposed to be an afternoon game.

The game went 14 innings and was just three minutes short of five hours long.

On average there was one pitcher used for each inning of the game.  Each team utilized seven hurlers.

Those 14 pitchers gave up a total of 26 hits and 16 runs. But there were also 14 walks and 43 runners left on base.

This was a wild end to a bizarre opening homestand for the Yankees in their new stadium.

Six games were played in this homestand and a total of 26 home runs were struck, a new Major League record for home runs hit in the first home stand of a new park.
