OAKLAND, Calif.— An exhausted Brandon Moss threw a pie in his own face after hitting the home run that ended the major league's longest game this season.

Moss hit his second home run of the night with two outs in the 19th inning early Tuesday, giving the Oakland Athletics a 10-8 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

The teams were on the field for 6 hours, 32 minutes in a game that ended at 1:41 a.m. PDT (3:41 CDT). By time, it was the longest game by time in Oakland — and the longest in Angels history.

Former Boston Red Sox Josh Reddick usually gets the honor of the pie throw after a game-ending hit by the A's. He was too tired.
