Albert Pujols mercifully put an end to Saturday night’s Red Sox vs. Angels marathon with this replay-reviewed opposite-field walkoff home run off Boston right-hander Brandon Workman …

The game took a total of six hours and 31 minutes. You have to feel somewhat sorry for the umpires and tech guys who had to stay up in New York City to review that thing. It was 3:40 a.m. ET when Pujols went yard.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
