Associated Press
The American League roundup …
NEW YORK ó Robinson Cano helped New York race out to a big lead after losing Joba Chamberlain to a leg injury in the first inning, driving in three runs as the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-4 on Thursday night for their ninth straight win.
Cano hit an RBI double in New York’s four-run first and a two-run shot in the second. Melky Cabrera, subbing for a sore Johnny Damon, had a two-run double in the first and Hideki Matsui connected in the fifth to give Yankee Stadium the record for most homers in a ballpark’s first 20 games.
Mariano Rivera tossed a perfect ninth inning for his 57th save against Baltimore, his most against any team. It also was career save No. 491, his second in two days and his ninth in 10 opportunities this season.
Twins 20, White Sox 1
CHICAGO ó Joe Mauer hit a grand slam, two doubles and drove in six runs as the Minnesota Twins routed the White Sox 20-1 Thursday, matching Chicago’s most-lopsided loss in team history.
Indians 8, Royals 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo. ó Victor Martinez drove in three runs and the Indians got past Zack Greinke by getting to the Kansas City bullpen.
Greinke’s record stayed at 7-1 with his first no-decision in nine starts. He went six innings, gave up a season-high eight hits and left with a 3-2 lead. His major league-leading ERA crept up to 0.82 from 0.60.
Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits and two RBIs as Cleveland beat the same opponent two times in a row for the first time this season.
Carl Pavano (4-4) went six innings.
Tigers 4, Rangers 3
DETROIT ó Miguel Cabrera hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning and the Tigers won their sixth straight game, defeating the Rangers.
Curtis Granderson and Clete Thomas homered for Detroit. The Tigers completed their second sweep of Texas this season, and have beaten the Rangers 11 times in a row at Comerica Park.
The Rangers arrived in Detroit this week with an eight-game winning streak, but managed only seven runs in their three losses.
Kevin Millwood (4-4) took the complete-game loss, giving up six hits.
Rays 6, Athletics 5
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Pinch-hitter Ben Zobrist tied the game with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and Carl Crawford then won it with an RBI single in the Rays victory over the Athletics.
Zobrist got the Rays even at 5 with the homer off Andrew Bailey.
Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 1
BOSTON ó Jason Bay set a Red Sox record with his 11th straight homer with runners on base and Jon Lester rebounded from two bad outings as Boston completed a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays.
Bay hit his 13th homer of the year, a two-run shot.
