The American League roundup …
KANSAS CITY, Mo. ó Michael Brantley’s three-run homer and Travis Hafner’s bases-loaded double keyed a 10-run fourth inning Monday night that sent Cleveland to a 19-1 win over Kansas City.
Vin Mazzaro, the third Royals’ pitcher, was charged with 14 runs and 11 hits in 21/3 innings.
Brantley and Matt LaPorta both had four RBIs in the Indians’ biggest offensive outburst since scoring 22 runs at New York on April 18, 2009. Hafner and Orlando Cabrera each had three RBIs.
Red Sox 8, Orioles 7
BOSTON ó Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run double off the left-field wall with one out in the ninth inning for Boston.
Trailing 7-6 going into the inning, the Red Sox put runners at first and second on one-out walks to Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia. Gonzalez, the AL leader with 37 RBIs, then got the winning hit on the first pitch he saw from Kevin Gregg (0-1).
Alfredo Aceves (1-0) got the win, allowing one run in three innings.
Rays 6, Yankees 5
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Sam Fuld and B.J. Upton hit two-run homers to help Tampa Bay hand New York its sixth consecutive loss.
It’s the first time the Yankees have lost this many consecutive games since a seven-game skid in April 2007.
Blue Jays 4, Tigers 2
DETROIT ó Kyle Drabek pitched seven strong innings as Toronto snapped Detroit’s seven-game winning streak.
Drabek (2-3) allowed one run despite walking six, and gave up three hits and struck out two. Frank Francisco pitched the ninth for his fourth save, allowing a solo homer to Jhonny Peralta.
Rangers 4, White Sox 0
CHICAGO ó Texas’ Colby Lewis pitched a five-hitter for his first career shutout.
