Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
The American League Roundup …BALTIMOREó Manny Ramirez became the 24th player to reach 500 career home runs, connecting in the seventh inning off Chad Bradford to help the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-3 Saturday night.
The 500-home run club has only two dozen members, but Ramirez also joined an even smaller fraternity. He is only the seventh player in baseball history with 500 homers, 1,500 RBIs, 1,000 walks, 475 doubles and a .300 batting average. The others are Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Mel Ott, Babe Ruth, Frank Thomas and Ted Williams.
Rays 2, White Sox 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Scott Kazmir won his fifth straight start, allowing three hits in seven innings in AL East-leading Tampa Bay’s win.
The 2007 AL strikeout champion set a Rays record for wins in a month, improving to 5-1 since spending all of April on the disabled list with a left elbow strain.
Cliff Floyd homered for the second straight game and B.J. Upton drove in another run off Javier Vazquez (5-4) with an RBI grounder, helping the surprising Rays go 12 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history at a league-best 34-22.
Royals 4, Indians 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. ó David DeJesus homered and Kyle Davies pitched five strong innings just hours after being called up from Triple-A to help the Royals end a 12-game slide.
Davies (1-0) gave up one run on five hits and became Kansas City’s first winning pitcher since Zack Greinke on May 18.
Rangers 8, Athletics 4
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Josh Hamilton homered and drove in three runs and the Rangers the month of May 19-10, the first time they’ve won 19 games in a month since June 1983.
Hamilton pushed his RBI total to majors-leading 61.
Mariners 5, Tigers 0
SEATTLE ó Felix Hernandez allowed just two hits in seven innings, and Kenji Johjima likely scored the most unusual run of his career with a steal of home in the Mariners’ win.
Yankees 7, Twins 6, 12 innings
MINNEAPOLIS ó Bobby Abreu gave the New York Yankees another big hit, breaking a 12th-inning tie with a one-out single Saturday in a 7-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
