They played all day and all night.

Aside from 41 minutes for a rain delay and an hour between games, that’s just what the Phillies and White Sox did.

They played and played and played some more.

At the end of the night … er, early the next morning, not much had been settled. The White Sox took the opener with a 5-4 victory in 11 innings and the Phillies earned the split with a 2-1 win in 13 innings in the nightcap.

Strangely, both games lasted three hours, 53 minutes.

“I started seeing stuff out there for a while. I was getting pretty dizzy out there,” said Michael Young, the hero of the second game. “I’m happy we can get that win any way we can get it.”

After a short nap, the teams will return in a few hours for the series finale later on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks to Young, the Phillies won’t have to drag themselves out of bed hoping to avoid a series sweep. With two outs in the 13th, Young laced a single to right field to send Jimmy Rollins scurrying in from second. A slick slide around catcher Tyler Flowers helped Rollins avoid the tag and slip his left hand over the plate for the game-winner.

Even with two outs in the 13th and Chase Utley waiting on deck, Rollins wasn’t going to stop at third base.

“Jimmy did a good job on the bases there at the end,” Young said. “Yeah, we’re going no matter what.”

Rollins had to go. With both clubs already thin in the bullpen because of an 11-inning game earlier, there was no time to wait. Besides, manager Charlie Manuel sent reliever Joe Savery to the plate to bunt with one out in the 13th while the White Sox had backup catcher Josh Phegley playing second base after Gordon Beckham left the game with a quadriceps contusion.

Phegley wasn’t out there for long. Catcher Humberto Quintero led off the 13th with a walk off reliever Simon Castro. He was erased when Jimmy Rollins grounded into a fielder’s choice, narrowly beating the relay to avoid the double play.
