No, They play a complete inning so each team gets a chance to bat, and if one team is ahead at the end of the inning then they win the game.

i.e. The visitors score 2 runs in the top of the 10th inning, the home team will get a chance to bat, and if they score fewer then 2 runs, the visiting team wins, if they score 2 runs, they go to the next "extra inning", if the home team scores 3+ then the home team wins.

** When in extra innings if the home team wins, the game ends when the winning run is scored, in the scenario above, when the 3rd run is scored -- the only way the home team would get credit for more then 3 runs, is if the game ended on a homerun, then in that case, all the runs scored on the home run would count and the game would be over

In baseball extra innings is it sudden death?

Not exactly. Even in extra innings, each team has to have an equal number of chances to bat.

What are the MLB overtime rules?

If the teams are tied after 9 innings, they have as many innings as they need until the other team scores a run. However, if the visitor team (the team that bats first in the inning) scores a run in an extra inning, the home team still gets to bat to try and score a run. Example: 8-8 in the tenth inning. The visitor team scores. The score is 9-8. The home team still gets to bat and if they score a run and tie again, the process is repeated. But if they get two runs and win, no more innings are needed.

How many innings did it take for Brian Lara to get 400 in a single test match?

It took ONE innings for Lara to establish that record. A test match consists of two innings- both sides batting twice, except in a case like this: Team A bats first and scores 400 runs. Team B bats and is out for 100 runs. Team A then has the option to enforce the 'follow-on', making Team B bat its second innings immediately. If this happens, and Team B is out for 100 runs again, then Team A wins by batting one innings and 200 runs.
