The San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox tied a Major League record on Tuesday night by combining to use 24 pitchers.

The game lasted 5 hours, 54 minutes and featured 50 players overall.

"I wanted to get my 10,000 steps, and I was a little behind," Bruce Bochy jokingly said of the pitching changes. "We had some guys that picked each other up. It was September baseball with added arms.

"You never like to use that many pitchers. Believe me."

San Francisco's pitchers threw 294 pitches to Boston's 253.
