OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Two games in one.
The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics are tied 8-all in the 19th inning early Tuesday in a game that has pushed well past 1 a.m. on the West Coast.
It is already the longest game of the major league season.
The teams have been on the field for more than 6 hours, making it the longest game ever played in Oakland and the longest in Angels history.
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.
