Houston vs Reds Tie 2005 Tie was made up 112 days before the World Series
Something I didn't realize before in regards to the last Tie in 2005 was that that game was actually made up and both the Astros and the Reds played 163 games that season.
Notice they made the game up 112 days before the 2005 WS in which Houston made but lost.
The Tie game was even 2 hours 28 minutes.
The last time the Cubs tied was on May 28th 1993.
It was also 23 years ago and 23 days before Michael Jordan and the Bulls won their 3rd title on 6/20/1993.
Also 4 months 8 days or 131 days before MJ retired for the first time.
Interesting too the tie this year was the first time the Pirates and Cubs had a tie since 8/7/1967
Remember the Cubs stayed on 101 wins because of the tie in 2016. It was also 26 days before the WS. 26th prime is 101
