Did you see all of it? After more than 7 hours and 18 innings of play, the Dodgers defeated the Red Sox  3-2 during Game 3 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium last night. It was the longest World Series game in history, reports S.I.

The marathon game, which ended early this morning, was significantly longer than the previous record-holder: a 5-hour, 41-minute match during the 2005 World Series, S.I. said.

The two teams return to Dodger Stadium tonight and Sunday for games that start shortly after 5 pm. Boston still leads the series with two wins.

It was also a marathon day for the LAPD, which said it took four shifts of officer to provide security around the stadium.

Police once again warned fans driving to the game to be aware of No Parking restrictions on many of the streets surrounding the stadium.

The department also advised motorists that a large area  surrounding the ballpark — from Glendale Boulevard on the west, Riverside Drive on the north, Broadway on the east and Temple Street on the south — “should be avoided whenever possible” between 2 pm and 11 pm.

Officials recommended that if possible fans take the Dodger Stadium Express from Union Station — the ride is free for those with game tickets — or bike or walk to the ballpark.
