The American League roundup …
NEW YORK ó Joe Dillon hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays touched up Mariano Rivera for the second time this season, defeating the New York Yankees 9-7 on Saturday.

The Rays have won four straight and six of seven. They are 3-0 at the new Yankee Stadium, including an 8-6 victory May 7 when Rivera (0-2) served up back-to-back homers for the first time in his career.

BOSTON ó Jon Lester retired the first 19 batters he faced and finished with a two-hitter, David Oritz homered and the Boston Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers.
Michael Young doubled into the gap in left-center with one out in the seventh inning to break up Lester’s bid for a perfect game. Oritz, mired in a season-long slump, connected for the second time this season. Mike Lowell also homered ó after having his double overturned by video review.
Mariners 2, Twins 1
SEATTLE ó Ken Griffey Jr. drove in Ichiro Suzuki with a two-out double in the eighth, leading Seattle to the victory.

White Sox 4, Indians 2
CHICAGO ó Josh Fields homered and Gavin Floyd pitched into the seventh inning, helping the White Sox end a four-game skid.

Bobby Jenks pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save in 14 opportunities.
Royals 6, Blue Jays 2
TORONTO ó Luke Hochevar worked a season-high 6 2-3 innings, Willie Bloomquist hit a three-run triple and Kansas City ended an eight-game losing streak.
