OAKLAND, Calif. — Yoenis Cespedes drove in four runs, Seth Smith knocked in three with a bases-loaded double and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-6 on Tuesday.

One night after outlasting the Angels 10-8 in a 19-inning classic that lasted 6½ hours, the A's had a few problems defensively but looked just fine at the plate while beating Los Angeles for the fifth consecutive time this season.

Jarrod Parker (1-4) pitched into the seventh inning and Derek Norris scored twice for Oakland.

Mike Trout drove in four runs and Mark Trumbo homered for the second straight game for the Angels. Los Angeles fell to 9-17, the worst start in franchise history.
