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

But if they get two runs and win, no more innings are needed.

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.

How does a tie baseball game end?

Under normal circumstances, there are no ties in baseball. if the score is tied after a full 9 innings, then the game will continue until a team scores a run and that inning is completed. innings beyond the 9th inning are known as "extra innings" (there is no term "overtime" in baseball). if it's the visting team that scores, then the home team will get one last at bat to try and tie or win the game. if it's the home team that scores, then the game is automatically over, the home team is the winner and it's known as a "walk off". the only games that can end in a tie are pre-season games, in 2002 the all-star game ended in a tie in the 11th inning (due to the commissioner of baseball declaring a tie after all the pitchers had been used).
