The New York Yankees defeated the Cleveland Indians 10-9 in Game 2 of the Wild Card Series on Wednesday night, punching their ticket to the ALDS.

The game was the longest nine-inning game in Major League history.

"I'm 47 years old. I've watched a lot of baseball. I've watched a lot of my dad's playoff games, been in some really big games, and I don't know how you top that one -- the back and forth, the amount of big plays," Aaron Boone said. "Tonight just had that feeling that these guys weren't going to be denied.

"They weren't going to lose."

The game lasted 4 hours, 50 minutes -- not including two rain delays totaling another 76 minutes.

"You don't have to pour champagne on each other to appreciate what an epic game that was and the fact that we're moving on," Boone said.
