Crazy Game of the Week: Reds and Pirates Hit 10 HRs Before Rain Suspends Play

The Reds and Pirates opened up a three-game series last night in Cincinnati with their own personal home run derby. The teams combined for 10 dingers, the most ever hit in one game at Great American Ball Park and the most in an MLB game since 2006. (The Pirates hit three back-to-back jacks.)

But here's the thing: The game hasn't ended. It rained all night, and at the end of the 6th inning officials suspended the game with the score tied, 7-7. It'll be picked up at the top of the 7th at 5:30 p.m. today. So the Reds and Pirates could add even more homers to the box score.

The season's still young, but this is easily the craziest game of the 2014 campaign. Get ready for the final innings by watching all 10 home runs:
