It only includes games in which the lead changed during the ninth inning (excluding games in which the score was tied after eight innings), or in which a team caught up and tied the game during the ninth inning and then ended up winning in extra innings. Home team is underlined. For further details on historic games, see baseballreference.com.
© : This list includes two eight-inning extra-inning games during the 2020-2021 covid-19 pandemic when double-header games were limited to seven regulation innings.
