August 23–24, 1989 – The Dodgers played another 22-inning game, this one against the Montreal Expos. It eventually ended when Rick Dempsey homered for the Dodgers in the top half of the 22nd off Expos pitcher Dennis Martínez, who was making a very rare relief performance; the Dodgers won 1–0 in what was the Expos' longest game ever. Rex Hudler would be caught stealing second in the bottom half of the 22nd to end the game. The game almost ended earlier when an Expo scored from third on a sacrifice fly. The Dodger's appeal, that the runner left the base too soon, was recognized by the third base umpire and the third out was recorded. The game also marked the first time a mascot was ejected by an umpire. When Youppi! dressed in a nightgown and nightcap pretended to go to sleep on top of the Dodgers dugout, Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda demanded that Youppi! be run from the game. In the end, the game took over 6 hours to finish and ended close to 2 a.m. Eastern time (11 p.m. PT).
The Dodgers drafted 65 players in this draft. Of those, seven of them would eventually play Major League baseball. The Dodgers had three first round picks this season as they gained the New York Yankees first round pick and a supplemental pick for the loss of free agent Steve Sax. They also gained an extra second round pick from the Cleveland Indians as compensation for the loss of pitcher Jesse Orosco.
With their first pick in the 1st round, the Dodgers selected pitcher Kiki Jones from Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Florida. Despite concerns that he was too small to make it, the Dodgers drafted him and their scouting director said "he`s got the best arm around and the best curveball in the country." He was 8-0 with a 1.58 ERA his first season in the rookie leagues with the Great Falls Dodgers but then began to experience arm injuries and legal problems. The Dodgers released him after the 1993 season, though he attempted comebacks in 1998-1999 and 2001. In 8 total minor league seasons he was 23-20 with a 4.13 ERA in 77 games (61 starts).
