On September 15, 2015 — The Rockies set a major league record by using 30 players and 13 pitchers in a 5 – 4, 16-inning win over the Dodgers. The combined totals of 58 players and 24 pitchers are also records. Among the players is rookie P Jason Gurka who spends an inning in right field, taking over for an exhausted Carlos Gonzalez in the bottom of the 16th. David Hale is the winner and Gonzalez Germen is credited with a save, while Mat Latos, the 11th man to take the mound for Los Angeles, is charged with the loss.
