Major Leagues: American League Roundup

The American League roundup …
OAKLAND, Calif. ó Guillermo Moscoso held Kansas City hitless until rookie Salvador Perez singled with two outs in the eighth inning.
Perez broke up the no-hit bid by lining a clean, opposite-field field single to right.
“I guess my one bad pitch came in the last inning,” Moscoso said. “They showed the last two games that they are good hitters and that just made me focus more. I was feeling great.”
Moscoso (8-8) wound up allowing two hits in 82/3 innings. The right-hander walked one and struck out four in his 18th major league start.
Moscoso set an Oakland record by retiring 30 consecutive hitters ó the final 13 against Seattle last Friday and the first 17 against the Royals. He walked Kansas City’s Alcides Escobar with two outs in the sixth.
“A lot of guys may have better stuff or better location that Guillermo but no one has a bigger heart,” Melvin said. “The ninth inning was painful for me. I just couldn’t stomach the fact he would throw 130 pitches. He wouldn’t give me the ball. It was actually a wrestling match for a little while.”

Tigers 8, Indians 6
CLEVELAND ó Justin Verlander won his 10th straight start and earned his 22nd victory overall when Victor Martinez hit a late grand slam that sent Detroit over Cleveland 8-6 on Wednesday.
Verlander (22-5) gave up two two-run homers to Shelley Duncan and trailed 4-2 before Detroit rallied against Justin Masterson (11-9) and the Indians’ bullpen.
The slam by Martinez highlighted a five-run seventh inning.
Orioles 5, Yankees 4, 11 innings
NEW YORK ó Baltimore’s Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking single in the 11th inning after striking out four times.
Rays 5, Rangers 4, 10 innings
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. ó Desmond Jennings homered on the first pitch in the bottom of the 10th for Tampa Bay.
The win was the 1,000th overall for the Tampa Bay franchise. The Rays have lost 1,245.
