Mark Ellis hit a roller to Angels’ left fielder Howie Kendrick for a walkoff fielder’s choice and a 5-4 Oakland, 10-inning victory. Kurt Suzuki scored from third base on the grounder hit by Ellis to Kendrick who was playing the infield in the Angel’s prevent-five-man-infield-defense.
Suzuki drew a one out walk off Fernando Rodney (2-2), moved to second on another walk then took third on a wild pitch. Kendrick was playing near second base and fielded Ellis’ grounder cleanly. But his throw home sailed high and Suzuki slid across the plate with the winning run.
