Angels Win in Epic 12-Inning Thriller

The #1 A’s and #4 Angels were tied 0-0 at the end of 11 innings, and the Angels broke the ice in the 12th when Andrew Splitt singled up the middle with runners on 2nd and 3rd with 2 out, scoring both. The A’s were able to plate one in the bottom half, but could not get the tying run on base. The two top-three offenses had several runners in scoring position throughout the game, but each team was thwarted by outstanding pitching and defense for much of the day.

Jake Shields took the mound for the Angels, going 11 innings before leaving the game with an injury to his throwing hand. Shields allowed just 4 hits and 2 walks and finished with 12 strikeouts in his superb outing. Jeff Reinholtz earned the save, with his only blemish being a hit batter who eventually scored and accounted for the A’s single run. Tyler Dierke kept the Angels from scoring in his 7 innings before yielding to Max Sellman who also threw 5 strong innings.

Game Time: 2 hr, 55 min.
