nevrmind....linda cohn is a moron.

The stats from Thursday night will count, but the game will be started anew in a doubleheader Saturday, beginning at 5:10 p.m. ET. There are no rainchecks for Thursday's game.

If I recall correctly (and this is all from ancient memory), all player stats count after five innings. However, I believe it is also standard procedure to start from scratch if the game is tied and cannot be finished the same day.

They won't "play 163 games", because only 162 will count for their record. I think the offical game log for the season will list players having both today and tomorrow as a single game. This happened once before, a long time ago, and this is everything I seem to recall from it.

No, it does count as a separate game. Players can get 163 games played on their stat sheet for a single year.
