How many innings are in a Major League Baseball game?

There are nine innings in a major league baseball game. If the score is tied after nine innings, the game goes into extra innings and continues until one team or the other is ahead after a complete inning. Games can be called anytime on account of rain, darkness, earthquakes, etc. and can be considered complete or continued at a later date depending on the number of innings completed. A complete game requires at least five innings of play so that the losing team has five at-bats.
