With baseball and softball games going nearly all night long and French Open coverage starting a 3 a.m., this past weekend featured around-the-clock sports.

We start off with the San Diego Padres defeating the Toronto Blue Jays after 17 innings early Saturday morning. Meanwhile, at the College Softball World Series, a late-inning thriller between Florida and Nebraska forced the Michigan-Arizona State match to start after midnight Central Daylight Savings Time.

Fans and players competed for fly balls while the Royals and Rangers faced off on the diamond and in cow milking, making this a memorable weekend in sports ... and farming.
