Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
SEATTLE ó Even though it came on a day CC Sabathia didn’t need much, he’s not going to complain about the run support he’s been receiving.
So far, at least, his teammates aren’t giving him grief about it.
“I don’t think anybody has realized it yet, but I know,” Sabathia said.
The Yankees ace continued his domination of the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, allowing just one run in eight innings, and Andruw Jones provided the big blow with a bases-clearing double as New York avoided a three-game sweep with a 7-1 win.
Sabathia (6-3) was again the Yankees stopper. He won for the third time in four tries when pitching after a loss, allowing just two hits through five innings before giving up a solo homer to Seattle’s Justin Smoak in the sixth inning.
He also won for the sixth straight time against the Mariners and improved to 8-1 in 11 starts at Safeco Field. In his last six starts against Seattle, Sabathia has a 0.82 ERA.
Angels 6, Twins 5
MINNEAPOLIS ó Erick Aybar had three hits and three RBIs and Dan Haren earned his first win since April 17 in Los Angeles’ victory over Minnesota.
Mark Trumbo hit a 436-foot homer in the ninth, and Jordan Walden got his 12th save.
Rangers 7, Royals 6
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Mike Napoli slid under the tag of catcher Brayan Pena on Elvis Andrus’ two-out single in the ninth inning, giving Texas a come-from-behind victory over Kansas City.
Blue Jays 13, White Sox 4
TORONTO ó Aaron Hill hit his first career grand slam, Corey Patterson added a two-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays routed the Chicago White Sox.
Rays 7, Indians 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Jeremy Hellickson pitched seven impressive innings, John Jaso homered, and Tampa Bay beat Cleveland.
Red Sox 4-0, Tigers 3-3
DETROIT ó Justin Verlander took a shutout into the eighth inning as the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 to get a split of Sunday’s day-night doubleheader.
In the opening game, David Ortiz homered off Valverde ó first pinch-hit homer in eight years ó to break a 1-1 tie.
