After review, Pujols' walk-off blast is confirmed

ANAHEIM -- Albert Pujols rocketed an opposite-field home run in the bottom of the 19th inning, lifting the Angels to a 5-4 win over Boston in the longest Major League game this season.

Pujols, who shifted from first base to third in the top of the 14th inning, took a full-count delivery from Brandon Workman and deposited it into the right-field bleachers, snapping a season-high four-game losing streak for the Angels.


Red Sox manager John Farrell questioned whether the ball cleared the fence, but a replay review confirmed the long ball, setting off a celebration for the home team.
