A's lose Crisp, Young to injuries in marathon win

OAKLAND -- In the process of playing a 19-inning game that resulted in a 10-8 victory over the Angels, the A's lost two outfielders to injuries.

Coco Crisp exited the lengthy contest in the 14th inning with a strained left hamstring, while Chris Young departed two innings later because of a strained left quad he endured while running to first base.

Asked about the status of both players after the game, a tired manager Bob Melvin said, "I'm not sure yet until tomorrow."

The A's are bound to call on help from Triple-A Sacramento, and not just in the outfield. They used every reliever in Monday's marathon, along with starter Brett Anderson, so the club could also choose to bring in some fresh arms.
