WATCH: Albert Pujols delivers walk-off home run in 19th inning

  • David Whitlock

After 401 minutes and 18 pitchers, it took just one hack by Los Angeles Angels 1B Albert Pujols to send what was left of the 42K crowd in Anaheim home happy. Check out the opposite field Pujols-special off of Boston Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman that survived a replay review (via MLB.com)

The Sox had a chance in the 14th to win it, but since Koji Uehara had already been used, make-shift closer Junichi Tazawa couldn’t protect it. The game epitomozes the season for the two teams, as the Angels have surged from missing the playoffs two straight seasons to be the second best team in the American League, and the Red Sox falling from their World Champions status to a “seller” at the trade deadline.

Because of the west coast start and length of the game, it was well after 3:00 a.m. EDT. With a normal 7:05 PDT start, it would have been after 4:00 EDT. At 19 innings, it was the longest MLB game this year.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
