PHOENIX (CBS/AP) — Josh Reddick hit a three-run homer off Jered Weaver in the first inning, Luke Montz and Yoenis Cespedes each had two-run drives in the second off the Angels’ ace and an Oakland Athletics split squad blew a big lead before rallying for a 13-13 tie with Los Angeles on Saturday.
Weaver gave up eight runs and six hits, walked two and did not strike out a batter in two innings.
Left-hander Travis Blackley started for the A’s and gave up three runs in the first on three hits, then settled down to give up just two hits in his two remaining innings.
The A’s and Angels combined for 33 hits and used 14 pitchers.
