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

Not exactly. Even in extra innings, each team has to have an equal number of chances to bat. However, in extra innings (or in the ninth inning) if the home team scores, that team immediately wins, since the visiting team has already had the same number of innings and therefore can't possibly come back.

extra innings last until one team scores and at the end of that inning is when it ends. Longest extra innings has gone up to the 15th inning.

whoever scores more points in 9 innings ...or when the home team retires the visiting team in the top of any inning after 9 innings given they have a lead and the game went into extra innings. And they are runs not points.

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.

A game under regulation of the MLB is 9 innings, but if after 9 innings it is still a tie it goes on until the tie is brokken and that inning ends. For example it is tied after 11 innings of play then the away team scores a run, and in the bottom of that inning the home team scores no runs the away team wins.
