Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
The American League roundup …
MINNEAPOLIS ó Francisco Liriano sniffed his second no-hitter of the season, sitting in the dugout for nearly a half-hour before Adrian Beltre led off the eighth inning with a clean single, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Texas Rangers 6-1 Sunday.
Liriano (4-6), who held the Chicago White Sox hitless in a wild effort May 3, was perfect through the sixth against the high-scoring Rangers.
Elvis Andrus was the first Texas player to reach base, on rookie third baseman Luke Hughesí fielding error with one out in the seventh on a questioned ruling.
The Twins scored five times in a 29-minute bottom of the seventh.
Red Sox 14, Blue Jays 1
TORONTO ó Jon Lester pitched two-hit ball over eight innings, David Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis each homered and drove in four runs and the Boston Red Sox won their ninth in a row, battering the Toronto Blue Jays.
Adrian Gonzalez and Dustin Pedroia also homered for Boston.
Yankees 9, Indians 1
NEW YORKó Derek Jeter had a pair of RBI singles, Alex Rodriguez drove in three runs and the New York Yankees pounded out a season-high 18 hits in beating the slumping Cleveland Indians.
Jeter singled during a five-run fifth inning and again during a three-run eighth, closing within seven hits of 3,000. The Yankeesí captain has four more games during their homestand to reach the milestone before the team heads out on a six-game trip.
Mariners 7, Tigers 3
DETROIT ó Miguel Olivo hit two home runs and Felix Hernandez pitched eight strong innings to lead the Seattle Mariners over the Detroit Tigers.
Royals 9, Angels 0
ANAHEIM, Calif. ó Vin Mazzaro pitched seven stellar innings and the Kansas City Royals turned five double plays to beat the Los Angeles Angels.
White Sox 5, Athletics 4
CHICAGO ó Adam Dunn hit a three-run homer to back seven strong innings by Phil Humber and the Chicago White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics.
Rays 9, Orioles 6
BALTIMORE ó Johnny Damon hit his 27th career leadoff home run, and Evan Longoria had an inside-the-park homer and three RBIs.
