Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
The American League roundup …
MINNEAPOLIS ó Jose Bautista hit three homers for the first time in his career Sunday, adding to his major league-leading total and sending the Toronto Blue Jays to an 11-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins and a sweep of their three-game series.
Jose Molina also had three hits for the Blue Jays, who scored in each of the first four innings. Yunel Escobar and Aaron Hill also had a pair of hits for Toronto.
The victory extended Torontoís winning streak to a season-best five games and allowed the Blue Jays (20-20) to get back to the .500 mark for the first time in nearly a month.
Rangers 5, Angels 4
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Chris Davis homered and later drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single and the Rangers beat the Angels, winning only their second series in the past month.
White Sox 4, Athletics 3
OAKLAND, Calif. ó Alexei Ramirez had three hits, including a home run off previously unbeaten Trevor Cahill, and the White Sox topped the Athletics.
Mark Buehrle (3-3) won for only the second time in 15 appearances at Oakland.
Orioles 9, Rays 3
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó J.J Hardy hit a grand slam, Nick Markakis added a solo shot and the Orioles beat the Rays.
The Orioles loaded the bases in the sixth with no outs as Rays reliever Rob Delaney walked all three batters ó one intentionally ó he faced. Hardy then put Baltimore up 8-2 when he hit his third career grand slam on a 2-0 pitch from Cesar Ramos. It was Hardyís first grand slam since May 12, 2007 while with Milwaukee against the New York Mets.
Jake Arrieta (5-1) allowed two runs and four hits over six innings for the Orioles, who took two of three from Tampa Bay. The right-hander has won a career-best four consecutive decisions.
Red Sox 7, Yankees 5
NEW YORK ó Kevin Youkilis hit a tying three-run homer, David Ortiz had a go-ahead drive and the Boston Red Sox completed a sweep of the reeling New York Yankees on Sunday night to reach .500 for the first time this season.
Jon Lester (5-1) shrugged off a slow start to beat New York again and Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his first homer with Boston as the Red Sox swept a three-game series in the Bronx for the first time since April 2004.
Heavily favored to win the AL East, the Red Sox opened the season 0-6 but finally evened their record (20-20) on their fourth try.
Despite jumping out to a 4-1 lead, the Yankees matched their longest losing streak since May 2009 by losing their fifth straight ó all at home.
