In Case You Didn’t Stay Up Til 2 A.M. PST…
After 19 innings and 6 hours and 32 minutes, A’s first baseman Brandon Moss hit a game-winning two-run home run against the Angels last night. During his postgame interview, an exhausted Moss pied himself before getting doused with Gatorade. A few tidbits: It was the longest game in the history of both teams; the Angels took the lead in the top of the 15th, but the A’s tied it in the bottom of the inning; Anaheim slugger Josh Hamilton was 0-for-8; Left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson was supposed to start for Oakland, but was instead skipped to rest an injured ankle. He ended up starting the 13th and gave up one run in 5 1/3 innings. Below is reaction from some A’s players.
WOW. All I can say—

We started this edition of Hot Clicks with an A’s win in 19 innings. The Marlins also had a late-inning rally last night over the Mets. They erased a one-run deficit in the bottom of the 15th by scoring a pair of runs. Here’s the call of the game winner by Florida play-by-play announcer Rich Waltz, who was VERY excited to be done with work.
