> INDIANS 4, WHITE SOX 3: CLEVELAND - C.C. Sabathia finished a marvelous May by working six solid innings and Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer to lead the Indians.
Sabathia missed nearly all of April after getting hurt on opening night in Chicago. The large left-hander allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out five and improved to 5-0 with a 2.56 ERA in seven career starts against Sox ace Mark Buehrle.
In May, Sabathia went 5-1 with 1.20 ERA and tossed two complete games.
Peralta homered in Cleveland's four-run third inning off Buehrle, who came in 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his previous four starts. The lefty gave up four runs and eight hits in six innings.
With the win, Sabathia improved to 10-3 all-time against Chicago.
NOTABLE: Down 3-0 and being outscored 14-0 in the series, the Indians scored four times in the third off Buehrle, who hadn't given up a run in 23 straight innings.
> YANKEES 11, TIGERS 6 (11): DETROIT - Jason Giambi's homer sparked a five-run 11th inning that lifted New York.
The Yankees, who had two five-run leads before the game went to extra innings, are a season-high 10 games over .500 after their fourth straight win.
The Tigers still have the best record in baseball despite losing three in a row.
Mariano Rivera pitched three shutout innings for the win. It was his longest outing in the regular season since Sept. 6, 1996, when he also pitched three innings against Toronto.
Todd Jones pitched a perfect 10th before Giambi turned on his hanging breaking ball and sent it into the rightfield seats with one out in the 11th for his 13th homer. It was his first drive since May 10.
Bernie Williams added a run-scoring single, and the Yankees loaded the bases and chased Jones, who had his longest and worst outing of the season. He gave up five runs and four hits with a walk in 12/3 innings.
Yankees setup man Kyle Farnsworth entered in the eighth, and the Tigers loaded the bases with two walks and a single against their former teammate.
Brandon Inge then hit a grounder to shortstop Derek Jeter, who flipped it to second baseman Robinson Cano, who couldn't get enough on his throw to first because of Marcus Thames' late slide, allowing pinch-runner Ramon Santiago to score and tie it at 6.
New York led 6-1 on Andy Phillips' sacrifice fly in the fifth, but the Tigers chipped away at the lead.
Ivan Rodriguez homered in the third, ending a 20-inning scoreless streak for the Tigers and a 25-inning drought against the Yankees.
NOTABLE: Rookie Joel Zumaya, whose fastball reached 101 mph, kept the Tigers in the game by striking out four and giving up only one hit in a career-high 21/3 innings.
> RANGERS 6, MARINERS 4: ARLINGTON, Texas - Brad Wilkerson's grand slam highlighted a six-run third, and the Rangers handed Seattle a season-high sixth straight loss.
The Mariners had taken a 3-0 lead against starter Kevin Millwood before Texas sent 11 hitters to the plate in the third-inning outburst against Gil Meche that included Michael Young's two-run homer.
Millwood allowed four runs and nine hits over six innings. He threw 116 pitches, striking out four and walking one.
In his seven home starts this season, Millwood is 2-3 with a 7.23 ERA. He is 4-0 with a 2.31 ERA in five road starts.
Akinori Otsuka got three outs for his ninth save in 10 chances for the Rangers, who won for the fifth time in six games despite four errors, two wild pitches and a passed ball.
The Rangers pulled within 3-2 in the third when Ian Kinsler doubled and Young hit his third homer.
NOTABLE: Mariners leftfielder Raul Ibanez was ejected in the first inning for arguing a checked-swing third strike.
BLUE JAYS 8, RED SOX 5: TORONTO - Vernon Wells hit three homers for the first time in his career and Troy Glaus homered twice.
Wells and Glaus hit back-to-back homers in the first off Josh Beckett, who had won his previous four starts. They got Beckett again with solo homers, Wells in the third and Glaus, his 17th, in the fifth. It was the fourth multihomer game of the year for both.
Wells then added a solo shot - his 15th - off David Riske in the eighth. Wells went 3-for-4 with four RBIs.
It was first time two Toronto players had a multihomer game since Carlos Delgado hit three and Raul Mondesi hit two on April 20, 2001, at Kansas City.
Beckett had one of his worst starts of the season, lasting just 42/3 innings. Gustavo Chacin, who came off the 15-day disabled list earlier Tuesday, allowed two runs and four hits and walked four in five innings.
NOTABLE: Toronto improved to 7-3 against Boston this season, all the losses coming when the recently demoted Josh Towers pitched.
ANGELS 6, TWINS 3: ANAHEIM, Calif. - Jeff Weaver pitched seven solid innings to win for the second time in seven starts, and Juan Rivera hit a two-run homer for Los Angeles.
Weaver gave up three runs and six hits to get his second straight win after five consecutive losses.
Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer in the first inning to snap an 0-for-9 slump and Jason Kubel added a drive off Weaver in the sixth.
The Angels right-hander struck out four and didn't walk a batter, keeping pace with his younger brother Jered, who pitched seven shutout innings Saturday against the Orioles to win his major-league debut with Los Angeles.
Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save in 14 chances.
The victory also was the Angels' sixth in seven games since they ended a six-game losing streak.
NOTABLE: Kubel, a rookie called up on May 23, led off the sixth by driving a 3-1 pitch from Weaver over the wall in center. Weaver had retired 12 batters in a row before Kubel's first home run of the season.
ROYALS 8, ATHLETICS 7 (10): OAKLAND, Calif. - Mark Grudzielanek hit a tiebreaking single to right in the 10th inning, and Kansas City won its first extra-inning game of the year.
Pinch-hitter Matt Stairs tied it with a single to center in the ninth against Huston Street, the Royals' first RBI by a pinch hitter this year. Street blew his third save chance and Matt Roney gave up Grudzielanek's hit in the 10th.
Jay Payton hit a two-run homer and Bobby Crosby and Nick Swisher also connected for the A's, who had rallied from a four-run deficit.
Payton and Crosby both had three RBIs. Crosby also doubled twice and singled to match his career high with four hits and Swisher homered for the second straight game for the A's.
Swisher's shot with two outs in the third was his team-leading 16th home run.
NOTABLE: Swisher had his first career stolen base in 202 career games in the sixth.
