MLB: Burnett blanks Boston

Associated Press
BOSTON ó A.J. Burnett scattered three hits pitching into the eighth inning and Alex Rios homered for the Toronto Blue Jays, who wrapped up a miserable road trip with a 3-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night.
Toronto finished the nine-game trip at 2-7 and avoided a sweep after Boston had won the two previous games in the last at-bat. The Red Sox and Blue Jays combined for seven total runs in the series.
Burnett (3-2) continued his mastery of the Red Sox, improving to 4-0 against Boston while allowing just one run in 16 innings over two starts at Fenway Park.
Indians 3, Mariners 2 (11 innings)
CLEVELAND ó Asdrubal Cabrera broke an 0-for-14 slump with a bases-loaded single in the 11th inning to give Cleveland the win.
Jhonny Peralta drew a one-out walk off Mark Lowe (1-2). Travis Hafner then doubled to left and Jamey Carroll was hit by a 1-2 pitch, loading the bases. Sean Green came on and struck out Franklin Gutierrez on three pitches, the final offering way outside. But Cabrera, batting just .190, lined an 0-1 pitch to center and was promptly mobbed by teammates.
Tigers 8, Yankees 4
NEW YORK ó Miguel Cabrera homered, tripled and drove in three runs, leading Detroit to its first three-game sweep in New York since 1966.
Reserve infielder Ramon Santiago made the most of his first start at shortstop this season, turning in a key defensive play and hitting a tiebreaking triple to back Nate Robertson (1-3).
Rays 4, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE ó Matt Garza allowed three hits in six innings, Carl Crawford snapped a tie with a two-run single in the seventh and the Rays won again.
Tampa Bay took two of three from Baltimore to win its third straight series and climb four games over .500 (16-12) for only the third time in the 11-year history of the franchise. Tampa Bay has never been five games over the break-even point.
Rangers 2, Royals 1
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Sidney Ponson got his first victory in a year and Texas finished off a successful homestand with Ron Washington still its manager.
Ian Kinsler hit a leadoff homer in the first and Ramon Vazquez hit a tiebreaking drive in the sixth off Zack Greinke (3-1).
Athletics 15, Angels 8
ANAHEIM, Calif. ó Jack Cust went 4-for-4 with a go-ahead homer that triggered an eight-run fifth inning, Emil Brown had four hits and the Aís gained a split of the four-game series.
Justin Duchscherer (2-1) allowed six runs ó only one earned ó and six hits over five innings with six strikeouts.
