The number of innings in a baseball game depends on the level of competition. In Major League Baseball a complete game is normally nine (9) innings.

Games that go into extra innings can be played until the last out is made or until the winning run is scored.

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.

A complete game requires at least five innings of play so that the losing team has five at-bats.

And finally, the Extra Innings Game. The only way a Major League Baseball game can end in a tie is if it's called. The rules state that the game must continue until either someone wins or the umpires call the game, usually on account of darkness. In the 2014 season there were two 19-inning games and a handful of 18-inning games; the longest game was 26 innings.
