Tired tale: Moss, A’s reflect on 19-inning win
Iannetta was not in Los Angeles’ starting lineup Tuesday night.
“There’s no doubt Chris feels it today,” Scioscia said. “There’s no doubt everybody’s feeling some things a bit more. When you have something that you’re dealing with, standing out there for 18 innings, like cold weather, is going to bring it out.”
Angels closer Ernesto Frieri, who gave up a tying hit to Yoenis Cespedes with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, said the A’s didn’t deserve to win.
Los Angeles had a 7-2 lead in the eighth but let it slip away on a night when Albert Pujols homered twice and drove in four runs. Mark Trumbo also homered and knocked in three.
The Angels lost more than just the game Monday night.
Bourjos was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The center fielder was hitting .313 before getting hurt legging out a sacrifice attempt in the 11th inning.
The injury to Bourjos was somewhat offset by the return of shortstop Erick Aybar, who was activated from the disabled list before Tuesday’s game. The Angels also selected the contract of outfielder Scott Cousins from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Oakland also had to scramble for help after using eight pitchers.
Dan Straily, who threw the first 4 2-3 innings of the marathon game, was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento and right-hander Evan Scribner was called up.
“I don’t think either team’s particularly fresh,” Melvin said. “We’ll be a little bit limited, as will they.”
