    Cespedes' throw, Cowgill's homer highlight Angels' 14-inning win over A's
    That Collin Cowgill hit a walk-off home run with two outs in the 14th inning to lift the Angels to a thrilling 2-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night wasn’t all that surprising. Despite his smallish 5-foot-9, 185-pound frame and...
