Question of the Day
ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Kendrys Morales homered from both sides of the plate during a nine-run sixth inning, capping the burst with a grand slam that sent the Los Angeles Angels romping past the Texas Rangers 15-8 Monday night.
Morales became the third switch-hitter in major league history to homer as a lefty and righty in the same inning. Carlos Baerga did it for Cleveland in 1993 and Mark Bellhorn of the Chicago Cubs duplicated the feat in 2002.
The Angels won the opener of the four-game series and closed within four games of AL West-leading Texas.
Morales connected for a two-run shot in the sixth as a lefty off Texas starter Roy Oswalt that put the Angels ahead 5-3. Morales then hit a grand slam off Robbie Ross from the right side.
ATHLETICS 4, RAYS 3, 15 INNINGS
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Jemile Weeks hit a sacrifice fly in the 15th inning and the Oakland Athletics outlasted Tampa Bay.
Weeks was 0 for 7 when he came up against the Rays’ five-man infield. He lofted a fly ball and Brandon Inge easily beat the throw home from center fielder B.J. Upton.
The game lasted 5 hours, 9 minutes and ended at 12:17 a.m.
Inge hit a leadoff single against Kyle Farnsworth (0-3) and was sacrificed to second. Seth Smith was intentionally walked, and Eric Sogard also walked to load the bases. The Rays then moved right fielder Ben Zobrist to the infield in hopes of getting a double play.
Brandon Hicks homered for the A’s, who have a major league-leading 12th walkoff wins this season.
Jordan Norberto (3-1) pitched one inning for the win as Oakland improved to 8-2 in extra-inning games this season. The A’s won despite striking out an Oakland record 21 times.
RED SOX 7, TIGERS 3
BOSTON (AP) _ Dustin Pedroia hit a tiebreaking homer and drove in three runs to support Clay Buchholz’s eight solid innings in leading Boston to its third straight win.
The Red Sox opened a 10-game homestand _ their longest of the season _ after taking two of three at Yankee Stadium over the weekend.
Will Middlebrooks had a two-run homer and Carl Crawford added an RBI triple for Boston.
