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.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Angels' Mark Trumbo has tremendous power, and the 27-year-old put that talent on display in Oakland on Monday night in an AL West divisional battle against the A's. Watch Trumbo absolutely destroy an offering from Oakland's Dan Sally to give the Angels a 2-0 lead in the top of the second: Your browser does not support iframes. CRUSHED. The bomb was estimated...

There is great news in O-Town as the Oakland Athletics have activated star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the disabled list. Cespedes has missed the past few weeks but has had a successful rehab stint after straining his muscle in his hand. He is expected to once again fill a middle-of-the-order spot in the Athletics lineup.

The Angels-Athletics game is still going on in extra innings right now which is good because it gives fans at the O.co Coliseum a chance to see if this home run that Mark Trumbo hit to lead off the second has landed yet.
Official cause of the baseball's death was ruled to be first degree Trumbombing. Distance of death is unofficially 475 feet which...
The Angels played 19 innings last night, and Peter Bourjos earned a trip to the disabled list after hurting his hamstring. Sometimes we come across random things in our many walks of life and now is as good of a time as any to show one-show all on this.
Here is a Peter Bourjos scouting report from 2010:
A couple interesting things to note here:
At the time, Bourjos’ MLB comp...

Just when it looks like things can't get any worse for the Angels, Mike Scioscia goes and makes a fool of himself. This scene from last night's Angels-Athletics games features a confused Scioscia heading out to the mound with a 3-1 count on Adam Rosales. Of course Scioscia can't do that because pitching coach Mike Butcher went out for a mound visit to pitcher Nick Maronde...
The Los Angeles Angels have placed outfielder Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list after straining his left hamstring. Because his asset is speed, this could be a tricky recovery and Los Angeles will want to make sure that there will be no chance at re-aggravation. Scott Cousins was called up to help fill the void. J.B. Shuck also will see some time.

Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton took the high road when dealing with a group of hecklers at Oakland Coliseum Monday night.The Athletics held "Josh Hamilton Appreciation Night" Monday in reference to the fly ball Hamilton dropped in the final regular season game of 2012 to help the A's win the American League West Division. Of course, Hamilton was a member of the Texas...

Short Stop Erick Aybar was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday by the Lost Angeles Angels. This is great timing considering the loss of Peter Bourjos Monday. That is if you want to look at the bright side of things.

It is too late for me to write a real recap. This game was also too weird and frustrating for such a thing, so here is a list of the nuttiness for those of you who weren't brave enough to stay up and watch:
-Two quality starts in one game from the Angels
-Five players lost to injury
-Two exploded hamstrings
-Two homers by Albert Pujols
-One murdered baseball...
Trout and Harper as teammates in the Arizona Fall League.
Over the recent years, baseball has been infused with a huge pool full of highly talented youth. However, it seems that two individuals stand out above the rest. This particular pair of young studs, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, have often drawn a comparison to each other, and spawned many an argument over who people would...
If I had told you Jason Vargas would make his best start of the year against the Mariners you would have to likely assume the Angels would come away with the win. Well, despite Vargas giving up only 2 runs in 8 innings of work the Angels faced another stomach-churning late-inning loss. Although Vargas pitched fantastically in his first start in his old home ballpark he was outdueled...
