ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning, Rubby De La Rosa pitched five-hit ball into the eighth and the Boston Red Sox bounced back from a 19-inning loss with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

The teams returned just 12 hours after the longest game in the majors this season, a 6 1/2-hour epic won 5-4 by the Angels on Albert Pujols’ homer well after midnight.

Mike Trout homered in the eighth for the Angels (68-49), who still have the majors’ second-best record despite losing five of six.

Cespedes broke open a scoreless game with his first homer for the defending World Series champions, driving a pitch from Joe Smith (4-1) into the Boston bullpen in left.
