Major Leagues: American League Roundup

Associated Press
The American League roundup …
CLEVELAND ó CC Sabathia took out any anger for being snubbed as an All-Star by striking out 11 in seven shutout innings, Curtis Granderson homered twice and Derek Jeter moved closer to 3,000 career hits as the New York Yankees roughed up the Cleveland Indians 9-2 on Tuesday night.
Jeter went 2 for 6 and now has 2,996 hits, leaving him four shy of becoming the 28th major leaguer ó and first Yankee ó to reach 3,000.
Sabathia (12-4) allowed five hits, walked two and overpowered the team that drafted him in 1998 and traded him 10 years later. Despite leading the league in wins and going 9-1 in his last 10 starts, Sabathia was left off the AL roster for the July 12 All-Star game in Phoenix.
Granderson hit a two-run homer in the second and solo shot in the fourth.
Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 2
BOSTON ó Darnell McDonald threw out Edwin Encarnacion at the plate on a single to short left field for the final out.
Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer with nobody out in the ninth off Jonathan Papelbon. A single by Encarnacion and a walk to J.P. Arencibia put runners at first and second with two outs. John McDonald looped a single that Darnell McDonald charged and, on the run, fired the ball on the fly to Jason Varitek.
Boston starter Jon Lester tossed four hitless innings before leaving with a strained muscle on the left side of his back.
Twins 3, Rays 2
MINNEAPOLIS ó Scott Baker had another impressive start cut short by injury before Glen Perkins bailed out struggling closer Matt Capps in the ninth again to help the Minnesota Twins hang on for a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Baker (7-5) gave up one unearned run on three hits.
Royals 5, White Sox 3
CHICAGO ó Felipe Paulino struck out nine in six innings for his first victory in more than a year and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3.
Rangers 4, Orioles 2
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Elvis Andrus hustled home with the go-ahead run in the seventh, the same inning that he made two spectacular defensive plays, and the Texas Rangers went on to a 4-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
