Associated Press
The American League Roundup …
BOSTON ó Felix Hernandez held a Boston lineup without Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz to six hits over six innings and the Seattle Mariners snapped a four-game losing streak with an 8-0 victory over the Red Sox on Friday night.
The Mariners, losers of 29 of their last 40, capitalized on some shoddy Red Sox fielding. Three Boston errors, two by starter Bartolo Colon, led to the Mariners’ first three runs.
Indians 4, Tigers 2
DETROIT ó Paul Byrd pitched seven sharp innings to earn his 100th career win and Casey Blake had a two-run double in Cleveland’s three-run fourth, leading the Indians to a victory over the Tigers.
Byrd (3-5) allowed two runs and four hits to improve to 9-2 against Detroit.
Ryan Garko hit a solo drive in the eighth for Cleveland, which has split the first eight games of its 11-game road trip. The Indians also picked up their 1,000th win against Detroit.
The Tigers have lost four straight to fall a season-worst 12 games under .500.
Royals 2, Yankees 1
NEW YORKó Kyle Davies won his second consecutive start since being called up from the minors and struggling Kansas City earned a rare victory at Yankee Stadium while snapping an 11-game road skid.
With its first road victory since May 18 at Florida, Kansas City improved to 2-19 in its last 21 visits to Yankee Stadium ó and 6-33 since the start of the 1998 season.
White Sox 10, Twins 6
CHICAGOó Carlos Quentin hit a three-run homer that deflected off right fielder Michael Cuddyer’s glove and Joe Crede went 4-for-4 with two homers as the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 10-6.
The victory was the White Sox’s fourth straight since a tirade from manager Ozzie Guillen last Sunday about the team’s struggling offense.
Rays 12, Rangers 4
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Scott Kazmir went eight innings to win his career-best sixth straight start, Evan Longoria hit one of Tampa Bay’s four homers and the Rays beat the Texas Rangers.
Orioles 6, Blue Jays 5
TORONTO ó Melvin Mora, Kevin Millar and Adam Jones all homered in Baltimore’s six-run eighth inning and the Orioles beat Toronto.
