Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel set a Citizens Bank Park record Wednesday by eating 18 cheesesteaks over a 3-game period. He can further add to his "accomplishment" -- he needs to devour just one more to set the 4-game record. We'll just let you digest that.

OTD: Spahn, Marichal go 16 innings

On this date in 1963, the Braves' Warren Spahn and the Giants' Juan Marichal had a pitching duel for the ages, each going the distance in a 16-inning game. It was Spahn who eventually faltered, but cut him some slack -- it was none other than Willie Mays with the walk-off home run to win, 1-0.
