RED SOX 10, BRAVES 7: ATLANTA - Kevin Youkilis' two-run homer capped Boston's six-run eighth.
Jeff Francoeur's three-run homer in the seventh put Atlanta up 5-3. And Macay McBride struck out David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez to start the eighth.
But he walked Trot Nixon and Jason Varitek. Coco Crisp's single made it 5-4. Chad Paronto entered and allowed Mike Lowell's go-ahead double. Alex Cora singled in Lowell, and Youkilis' homer made it 9-5.
NOTABLE: Atlanta's seven-game losing streak is its longest since July31-Aug.7, 1990.
PADRES 7, ANGELS 3: ANAHEIM, Calif. - Bartolo Colon struck out a season-high five but allowed two homers to take the loss in his first start since April15.
Colon, last year's Cy Young winner sidelined by right shoulder inflammation, retired 10 in a row during one stretch before allowing three runs in the fourth.
"I feel pretty good about how things went. It was almost like a sense of relief to be able to cut loose and feel no discomfort whatsoever," Colon said. "There was no pain, no stiffness. The only thing I'm working through right now is building up the strength in my shoulder."
Mike Cameron homered in the first, but the Angels scored two in the bottom half on doubles by Adam Kennedy and Garret Anderson and Tim Salmon's single.
Colon retired the first two batters of the fourth before Adrian Gonzalez sent a 1-and-2 pitch into the rightfield seats to tie it. Josh Bard followed with a double. Then an error by Maicer Izturis, starting at shortstop while Orlando Cabrera got the day off, allowed Khalil Greene to reach.
Singles by Vinny Castilla and Josh Barfield made it 4-2.
"(Colon's) stuff was good," Gonzalez said. "He had good movement on his sinker. He had life on his fastball."
Colon left after seven, and San Diego sealed it against J.C. Romero in the eighth. Bard reached on an infield single with one out. Greene followed with a single, and both scored on Castilla's double that made it 6-3.
NOTABLE: Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady on The Brady Bunch , sang the national anthem. His show was spoofed on the scoreboard with pictures of the Rally Monkey subbing for the six children.
QUOTABLE: "With our offense not really producing at the level we need it to, our margin of winning is very, very thin. So you've got to play good defense. You have to pitch well, and you have to use every bit of situational hitting you can." - Angels manager Mike Scioscia
BREWERS 6, INDIANS 3: MILWAUKEE - Carlos Lee had a special Father's Day dedication to make after his first career walkoff home run lifted the Brewers.
"I was hitting it for myself," Lee said with a smile. "I'm a father, too."
Lee's three-run blast in the ninth broke a tie at 3, allowing Milwaukee to complete a three-game sweep.
It was the latest in a series of home comebacks for the Brewers, who have trailed in 20 of their 24 victories at Miller Park this season. Geoff Jenkins hit a two-run single in the ninth to beat Cleveland on Saturday.
Milwaukee climbed back to .500 for the first time since May30.
Brewers rookie Prince Fielder tied the score at 3 with a leadoff home run in the sixth, his 13th of the season.
QUOTABLE: "I'll have a hard time sleeping for the 3-2 changeup down the middle to Fielder. It was right down the middle. It was the difference in the game." - Cleveland starter Paul Byrd
TWINS 8, PIRATES 2: PITTSBURGH - Two grounders and a single led to the go-ahead run in Minnesota's seventh consecutive win. The Twins reached .500 for the first time since starting 7-7.
Oliver Perez allowed two singles and retired 14 of 15 before Torii Hunter's homer with two outs in the seventh tied it at 1.
An inning later, Luis Castillo ended an 0-for-28 streak on the road by beating out a soft liner to short. Nick Punto grounded softly between the mound and third, but Perez mishandled the ball for an error. Mike Redmond's single put Minnesota ahead and chased Perez.
Salomon Torres hit Michael Cuddyer to load the bases, and Justin Morneau followed by extending his hitting streak to 10 games with a bases-clearing double that made it 5-1.
NOTABLE: Perez lost his past two starts to Cy Young winners, Johan Santana (2004 AL) and Tuesday to Chris Carpenter (2005 NL). He allowed three earned runs in 142/3 innings.
QUOTABLE: "I think the momentum changed when Torii hit that home run. It was like, "Hey, we can get this guy,' and sure enough, we did." - Redmond
WHITE SOX 8, REDS 1: CINCINNATI - Jon Garland homered and allowed only four singles to cap a sweep for Chicago, which has won 10 of 13. After starting June 7-0, the Reds went 2-8 on a homestand, their worst 10-gamer since 1950.
Aaron Harang, limited by a virus in his last start, matched Garland through five scoreless innings. In the sixth, Jim Thome walked, Jermaine Dye singled and A.J. Pierzynski's bunt moved the runners up. Alex Cintron's single scored Thome, but Dye was tagged out when Juan Uribe popped up a suicide squeeze.
Chicago had second and third with one out in the seventh. Tadahito Iguchi's single made it 2-0, and Thome followed with a sac fly. Garland's homer in the eighth followed Rob Mackowiak's two-out single and made it 5-0. And after Iguchi and Ross Gload led off the ninth with singles, Dye's three-run homer sealed it.
NOTABLE: The White Sox have won nine in a row against the Reds and lead the interleague series 12-2.
QUOTABLE: "We were all laughing. He talks a lot of trash about hitting." - Pierzynski on Garland's homer
MARLINS 4, BLUE JAYS 1: MIAMI - Florida's eighth consecutive win came in Roy Halladay's first loss in 12 starts.
Tied at 1, Hanley Ramirez led off the Marlins' third with a single. He stole second and scored on Dan Uggla's single.
Halladay struck out the first two batters of the fifth before Uggla tripled to right-center. Miguel Cabrera was intentionally walked, and Cody Ross and Jeremy Hermida delivered run-scoring singles.
NOTABLE: The winning streak is the Marlins' longest since nine Aug.27-Sept.8,2004. Their 6-0 homestand marked the fourth undefeated one of six or more games and first since Sept.26-Oct.1, 2000.
QUOTABLE: "The name of our game is offense, and we didn't get it." - Blue Jays manager John Gibbons
METS 9, ORIOLES 4: NEW YORK - David Wright hit a grand slam and was part of a wild play. His fifth-inning slam came after rookie Adam Loewen hit Eli Marrero and Carlos Beltran with two outs.
With New York up 5-4 in the seventh, Wright's single scored Jose Reyes. Julio Franco then singled, and leftfielder Ed Rogers overthrew the plate. Wright was called out at the plate, but the third-base umpire ruled shortstop Miguel Tejada blocked him as he rounded third, making it 8-4.
NOTABLE: Loewen is the first to face Cy Young winners in his first four starts: Randy Johnson, Roy Halladay twice and the Mets' Tom Glavine.
QUOTABLE: "It's important to not get complacent." - Wright on avoiding a sweep
NATIONALS 3, YANKEES 2: WASHINGTON - Ryan Zimmerman's homer in the ninth won it.
In the seventh, the rookie, 21, was jammed by a Chien-Ming Wang fastball and grounded out to second. But in the ninth, he sent the same pitch over the leftfield wall.
Wang, seeking his first complete game, entered the ninth having thrown 96 pitches. But the bullpen pitched 12 innings in the previous three days, and closer Mariano Rivera pitched the previous two.
Jose Guillen grounded out. But pinch-hitter Marlon Anderson singled, and Zimmerman won it on the next pitch.
NOTABLE: After Derek Jeter and Jason Giambi struck out, Alex Rodriguez's double scored Melky Cabrera from first to put New York up 2-1 in the eighth.
QUOTABLE: "I figured I was going to look for that same pitch first pitch, and if he threw it, try and do some damage with it." - Zimmerman
