Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
The AL Roundup …
ANAHEIM, Calif. ó Pinch-hitter Erick Aybar hit a bases-clearing triple to highlight a four-run seventh, and the Angels rallied for a 4-2 victory over the defending World Series champions Saturday. Los Angeles pinch hitters were just 6-for-38 with five RBIs this season before Aybar’s clutch hit.
The Angels, going for their fourth AL West title in five years, won their fourth straight game to move a season-high 21 games over .500 and extend their division lead over Oakland to eight games.
The Angels have won a big league-leading 59 games, including four of five against the Red Sox.
Yankees 4, A’s 3, 12 innings
NEW YORK ó Jose Molina was hit by Lenny DiNardo’s pitch with the bases loaded in the 12th inning, and the Yankees outlasted the Athletics.
Robinson Cano had four hits and David Robertson earned his first major league win as New York pulled out a tight game that lasted 4 hours, 45 minutes in 93-degree heat.
The Yankees, who stranded a whopping 21 runners, were down to their final out in the ninth when Cano doubled off Huston Street. Wilson Betemit tied it with an opposite-field single to left-center on an 0-2 pitch, handing Street his fifth blown save in 22 chances.
Mariners 9, Indians 6
SEATTLE ó One-time Seattle prospect Shin-Soo Choo homered and doubled in his first two at-bats, Jeremy Sowers picked up his first win of the season and the Indians beat the Mariners to snap a 10-game road losing streak.
The Indians last road win came June 21 against the Dodgers when CC Sabathia was still Cleveland’s ace and even added a homer that day. The 10-game skid was Cleveland’s longest road slump since 1991.
Rays 6, Blue Jays 4
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Rookie All-Star Evan Longoria hit his first career grand slam during a five-run sixth and Matt Garza threw 72/3 scoreless innings to help the AL East-leading Rays beat Toronto.
O’s 11, Tigers 10, 10 inningsBALTIMORE ó Luke Scott homered in the bottom of the 10th, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the Detroit Tigers 11-10.
Twins 14, Rangers 2
MINNEAPOLIS ó Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each homered and drove in eight runs between them as Minnesota beat Texas.
Royals 9, White Sox 1
CHICAGO ó Gil Meche and three relievers combined on a two-hitter, and John Buck and Billy Butler homered for Kansas City.
