  • 2013 — Brandon Moss homers off Barry Enright with Jed Lowrie on first base and two out in the bottom of the 19th inning to give Oakland a 10 - 8 win over the Angels. Oakland trails 7- 2 in the bottom of the 8th, but rallies for four runs that inning and adds another in the 9th when Yoenis Cespedes drives in Coco Crisp with a two-out single, forcing extra innings. The teams trade runs in the 15th before Moss ends it with his second homer of the game. For the Angels, Albert Pujols has a pair of long balls and Mark Trumbo hits a solo tape-measure blast in the 4th. Jerry Blevins, who had struck out against Enright in the 18th because the A’s had been forced to move DH Seth Smith to the outfield, gets the win. At 6 hours and 32 minutes, the game is the longest by time in both teams’ history.
