Mussina dodges trouble, ties Carl Hubbell

Associated Press
CLEVELAND ó Mike Mussina earned his 253rd win, tying Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell on the career list, and the New York Yankees made the most of their five hits in a 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Mussina (3-3) allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, just long enough to catch Hubbell for 41st place. The 39-year-old had his second consecutive solid outing after there was speculation he might lose his spot in the rotation.
Mussina was followed by Jonathan Albaladejo, Kyle Farnsworth, Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera, who worked the ninth for his eighth save in eight tries.
Hideki Matsui had two RBIs as New York earned a split of the four-game series after losing the first two. The club now heads back to Yankee Stadium after playing 18 road games in April ó the most by any team in the month.
Earlier in the day, the Yankees placed durable catcher Jorge Posada (shoulder) on the disabled list for the first time in his career.
Orioles 3, White Sox 3, 11 innings, suspended
CHICAGO ó The Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox were tied at 3 when play was suspended after 11 innings because of rain and a sloppy field full of mud and puddles.
The game will resume at the beginning of the 12th later this season, but no date was set. All the statistics from Monday count.
Juan Uribe hit a solo homer in the 11th off Baltimore closer George Sherrill, his first blown save in 10 chances this year. Sherrill then got out of a jam with runners at first and second.
Athletics 14, Angels 2
ANAHEIM, Calif. ó Frank Thomas tripled for the first time in six years, Daric Barton hit a three-run homer and the Oakland Athletics took over the AL West lead in the opener of a four-game series.
Jack Hannahan and Emil Brown also homered for the Athletics, who have won eight of 10.
They came into this series with just nine home runs through their first 26 games.
