Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistAugust 11, 2014

When a baseball game goes 19 innings, it can be tough for everyone, including the players, to stay engaged. That's when you see guys do some crazy things to pass the time.

On Sunday, the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blues Jays battled on the field for six hours and 37 minutes. Detroit had an early five-run lead, but Toronto tied it up with a run in the ninth inning.

It would be a while before anyone would score another run.

With the game feeling like it would never end, Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos and Blue Jays second baseman Ryan Goins, having been subbed out in the eighth and seventh innings, respectively, engaged in a friendly game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors" from opposing dugouts in the 17th inning.

Blue Jays star Jose Bautista finally ended the game with a walk-off single in the 19th inning to give Toronto a 6-5 victory.
