AL: Red Sox shell Indians, 12 runs, no outs

Associated Press
BOSTON ó The Boston Red Sox tied a modern major league record with 12 runs in an inning before making an out and Tim Wakefield won his fourth straight decision, 13-3 over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
Jason Bay hit a three-run homer and an RBI double and four other batters had two-run hits in the sixth when the Red Sox obliterated a 2-1 deficit and broke the AL record of 11 runs before an out was recorded.
The Red Sox tied the mark for games since 1900 set by the Brooklyn Dodgers on May 24, 1953. The Dodgers had 12 runs in the eighth inning of a 16-2 win at Philadelphia, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
Rays 8, Yankees 6
NEW YORKó Mariano Rivera gave up home runs to consecutive batters for the first time in his major league career, with Carl Crawford and Evan Longoria connecting in the ninth inning as the surging Tampa Bay Rays handed the Yankees their fifth consecutive loss.
Longoria had two of Tampa Bay’s six homers. Johnny Damon hit a tying, two-run homer in the eighth for New York ó one of two Yankees home runs. There have been 47 home runs hit at the new Yankee Stadium, 32 of them to right. The record for the first 13 games at a major league park is 51 at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
White Sox 6, Tigers 0
CHICAGO ó Mark Buehrle was perfect into the seventh inning and allowed one hit over eight innings, leading the White Sox over Detroit.
Placido Polanco’s one-out double ended the 30-year-old left-hander’s bid for a perfect game. Buehrle pitched a no-hitter April 18, 2007, against Texas.
Royals 3, Mariners 1
KANSAS CITY, Mo. ó Brian Bannister worked six scoreless innings to outpitch Jarrod Washburn and the Royals extended their winning streak to six games.
The Royals turned four double plays in front of 32,714 screeching fans and overcame some shaky moments from closer Joakim Soria to earn their eighth win in nine games overall.
They have won six straight against Seattle for the first time since 1989.
The Mariners have lost four straight and eight of 11 overall thanks to a failing offense. Ichiro Suzuki had three hits and Ken Griffey Jr. had a pair, but the rest of the Mariners weren’t so good, combining for four hits and 11 strikeouts.
Bannister (3-0) struck out seven, walked one and allowed five hits. Soria earned his seventh save in seven opportunities.
Athletics 9, Rangers 4
OAKLAND, Calif. ó Jack Cust hit a grand slam and Matt Holliday added a three-run shot for Oakland.
Bobby Crosby had three hits and drove in a run as the A’s snapped a four-game losing streak and got starter Trevor Cahill his first major league win.
Jack Hannahan doubled home a run and Kurt Suzuki added three hits in the A’s highest scoring game this season. Cahill (1-2) gave up one run and five hits in seven innings.
