Pujols’ HR In 19th Lifts Angels Over Red Sox 5-4

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) –– Albert Pujols homered leading off the 19th inning, and the Los Angeles Angels outlasted the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Saturday night in the longest game in the major leagues this season.

Pujols’ 514th career homer and 22nd of the season came on a 3-2 pitch from Brandon Workman (1-6). The towering drive disappeared into the seats above the 18-foot wall in right-center.

Boston manager John Farrell made a replay challenge, claiming there was fan interference, but the home run stood.

The Angels had run out of relievers, so Matt Shoemaker (10-4 came in and retired all nine batters he faced to get the victory.

The Angels tied the game in both the eighth and 14th innings.
