White Sox survive ejections, rally to beat Indians

White Sox survive ejections, rally to beat Indians

Mark Buehrle's ejection in the third inning for arguing a balk didn't rattle the Chicago White Sox, who regrouped after losing their starting pitcher to survive a dangerous ninth to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Wednesday.
Buehrle and manager Ozzie Guillen were both tossed by first-base umpire Joe West, who called two balks on the left-hander in the first three innings.
Mark Kotsay hit a two-run homer off Jake Westbrook (2-3) and Mark Teahen drove in two runs as Chicago won two of three over Cleveland to capture their first road series this season.
Bobby Jenks nearly blew a 5-1 lead in the ninth, allowing the Indians to score three runs before striking out Austin Kearns with the bases loaded and getting Russell Branyan to fly out.

Yankees 3, Twins 2
At Minneapolis, Nick Swisher homered in the top of the ninth inning, allowing Mariano Rivera to record his second save in less than four hours for New York.
Swisher hit his solo shot off Twins closer Jon Rauch (1-1), the third two-out run scored by the Yankees in the second game.
Derek Jeter homered and made a highlight-reel play at shortstop in the sixth inning of the first game, which was completed after being halted by rain the night before.
Rivera pitched the ninth inning for the save in the first game, making up for his only blown chance of the season 10 days ago at Yankee Stadium against the Twins.
Red Sox 11, Rays 3
At St. Petersburg, Florida, Adrian Beltre homered twice and matched a career high with six RBIs to lead Boston to its eighth win in nine games and a three-game sweep of Tampa Bay.
Beltre had four hits, finishing a double shy of the cycle after his ninth-inning triple helped put the game out of reach. David Ortiz homered for the sixth time in 11 games.
John Lackey (5-3) allowed two runs over 6 1-3 innings, pitching his best with runners in scoring position.
Athletics 6, Orioles 1
At Baltimore, Trevor Cahill allowed two hits over six innings, and Adam Rosales homered and drove in four runs as Oakland ended a six-game road losing streak with a win over Baltimore.
Cahill (3-2) allowed one run, walked three and struck out three, and Rajai Davis had three hits, stole a career-high three bases and scored twice for the A's.
Brian Matusz (2-5) gave up six runs and eight hits in five-plus innings for Baltimore. The left-hander has lost five straight decisions.
Angels 6, Blue Jays 5
At Anaheim, California, Bobby Abreu hit an opposite-field RBI single with two out in the ninth inning, atoning for his error that led to a tying run as Los Angeles edged Toronto.
Joel Pineiro bounced back from one of the worst outings of his career with six innings of two-hit ball and left after six innings with a 5-3 lead thanks to Hideki Matsui's two-run homer.
Mariners 5, Tigers 4
At Seattle, Mike Sweeney hit a two-run homer off relief pitcher Ryan Perry and Josh Wilson capped the eighth-inning rally with a two-run single as Seattle beat Detroit.
Down 4-1 entering the eighth, Franklin Gutierrez got it started with a leadoff single before Sweeney belted his sixth homer in the last 10 games two batters later. After a single by Jose Lopez and double by Rob Johnson, Wilson singled into left-center field to give Seattle the lead.
Royals 5, Rangers 2
At Kansas City, Missouri, Billy Butler homered and Luke Hochevar pitched eight strong innings to lead Kansas City past Texas.
Hochevar (5-2) held the Rangers to two runs on six hits, striking out four and walking none, and Joakim Soria worked the ninth for his 11th save in 13 chances and the 100th of his career.
