The AL roundup …
NEW YORK — David Ortiz hit a two-run homer and Jonathan Papelbon labored through the ninth inning to earn his 200th save, leading the Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees 6-4 Tuesday night.
Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run and Adrian Gonzalez hit an RBI triple as the Red Sox roughed up Freddy Garcia (4-5) early to move within two percentage points of the first-place Yankees in the AL East. Working on seven days’ rest, Jon Lester (8-2) gave up three runs and eight hits — seven singles — in six innings.
Derek Jeter had two hits to move within 12 of 3,000. He entered the 10-game homestand with 2,986 and said the most pressure he feels in his march toward the milestone is reaching the mark at Yankee Stadium.
Indians 1, Twins 0
CLEVELAND — Carlos Carrasco took a shutout into the ninth inning and the Indians pushed across an unearned run to defeat the Twins, ending a season-high five-game skid.
Carrasco (5-3) gave up three hits, struck out six and walked one over 8 1-3 innings as Cleveland avoided its first eight-game losing streak ever at Progressive Field.
Orioles 4, Athletics 0
BALTIMORE — J.J. Hardy, Luke Scott and Adam Jones hit solo homers, Chris Jakubauskas pitched five shutout innings and the Orioles beat Oakland to stretch the Athletics’ losing streak to a season-high eight games.
Jones had three hits for the Orioles, who will try to complete a three-game sweep Wednesday night. Baltimore had lost eight straight series to Oakland since July 2007.
White Sox 5, Mariners 1
CHICAGO — Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin homered, and Phil Humber held Seattle’s offense in check as the White Sox beat the Mariners.
Konerko’s solo shot in the second inning was his second in as many days and fourth in six games. The homer also marked the 1,000th run of his career.
Blue Jays 8, Royals 5
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Adam Lind and J.P. Arencibia each hit a two-run homer to lead the Blue Jays to a victory over the Royals.
Lind homered off Vin Mazzaro (0-1) in a three-run first inning. Jose Bautista was aboard on a single.
Tigers 8, Rangers 1
ARLINGTON, Texas — Austin Jackson had three of Detroit’s season-high 20 hits and Rick Porcello won for the sixth time in his last seven outings to help the Tigers beat the Rangers.
Porcello (6-3) gave up a run over six innings against the AL West-leading Rangers as the Tigers improved to 8-1 in their last nine games.
Porcello has allowed less than two runs in five of his last nine starts.
A night after getting 18 hits, Jackson helped Detroit win its fourth straight with three RBIs. The Tigers scored four runs in the fourth off Matt Harrison (5-5). Every Tiger in the lineup had at least one hit, including Casper Wells, Alex Avila, and Victor Martinez, who also had three hits apiece.
