The Toronto Blue Jays outlasted the Cleveland Indians 7-4 in the longest opening day game in MLB history

The Toronto Blue Jays' 2012 season kicked off today against the Cleveland Indians. Fans were expecting a great game from the new-look Jays, as they look to make the jump into the playoffs after decades out.

What they probably didn't expect was a record-breaking game, but that is exactly what they were treated to. The game set a new Major League Baseball record for the longest Opening Day game in history, as it took 16 innings to decide a winner.

Eventually, the Blue Jays would come out on top thanks to some J.P. Arencibia heroics. The Jays' catcher hit a three-run home run in the top of the 16th to give them a 7-4 victory.

Here is an inning-by-inning breakdown of the historic season opener.
