Blue Jays win longest opening day game in history

Posted:

In the longest opening-day game in major league history, J.P. Arencibia's three-run homer in the 16th inning sent the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Arencibia was 0 for 6 with three strikeouts before connecting.

The marathon eclipsed the previous longest openers -- 15 innings between Cleveland and Detroit in 1960 and 15 innings between Philadelphia and Washington in 1926.

Luis Perez, Toronto's seventh pitcher, pitched four scoreless innings for the win and Sergio Santos got two outs to end the 5-hour, 14-minute game.
