Jon Lester struck out 11 batters in seven innings to win his fourth straight decision, and Marco Scutaro and David Ortiz each matched a career-high with four hits as the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 14-0 Tuesday.
Lester (15-6) allowed just three hits, all singles, and walked one to improve to 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA in five starts since losing at Minnesota on Aug. 10. He also matched a season high for strikeouts and is 4-0 in his last six starts against Toronto.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Josh Reddick homered as the Red Sox matched a season-high with 20 hits and scored at least two runs in each of the first five innings.
Luis Perez (3-3) allowed a career-high eight runs and 10 hits in 2 2-3 innings.
White Sox 3, Twins 0
At Minneapolis, Jake Peavy struck out a season-high nine batters and Alex Rios homered to lead Chicago past Minnesota.
Peavy (7-7) allowed four hits and walked two in 6 1-3 innings against a Twins team that had three players who were called up from Double-A in the last two days.
Alejandro De Aza had two hits, including a triple, and an RBI, and Sergio Santos picked up his 29th save for the White Sox, who have won three in a row and eight of 12.
Tigers 10, Indians 1
At Cleveland, Victor Martinez drove in three runs as Detroit dropped Cleveland 8 1/2 games back in the American League Central.
Rick Porcello (13-8) was staked to an 8-0 lead after the top of the second inning as the Tigers knocked around Indians starter Fausto Carmona (6-14). Porcello gave up three hits and one run over 6 1-3 innings. He allowed only a single to Jason Kipnis in the second before Kosuke Fukudome homered to open Cleveland's seventh.
Detroit has won five straight and is 15-4 since Aug. 19.
Rangers 8, Rays 0
At St. Petersburg, Florida, C.J. Wilson allowed just five hits and David Murphy drove in four runs as AL West-leading Texas beat Tampa Bay.
Wilson (15-6) matched his career high in wins from last year and became the first Texas left-hander to record 15 or more wins in consecutive seasons. He has three complete games this year.
Murphy and Ian Kinsler homered for the Rangers, who are 3-2 on a six-game trip to Boston and Tampa Bay. Adrian Beltre extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a third-inning single.
Tampa Bay right-hander Jeff Niemann (9-7) gave up seven runs and nine hits in 4 2-3 innings.
