OAKLAND, Calif. -- Two games in one.
Brandon Moss hit his second home run of the game with two outs in the bottom of the 19th inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 10-8 victory over the Los Angeles Angels early Tuesday in the longest major league game of the season.
The teams were on the field for 6 hours, 32 minutes in a marathon game that ended at 1:41 a.m. on the West Coast. It was the longest game ever played in Oakland by time and the longest in Angels history as well.
Oakland slugger Yoenis Cespedes singled off the left-center wall to drive in the tying run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Los Angeles went ahead 8-7 in the 15th on a bases-loaded walk, but the A's tied it in the bottom half on Adam Rosales' two-out single after a costly error by Angels first baseman Albert Pujols.
