Wilson shutout as Rangers beat Rays

Wilson shutout as Rangers beat Rays

Texas' C.J. Wilson pitched a shutout to steer the American League West-leading Rangers to an 8-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday.
Wilson (15-6) became the first Texas left-hander to record 15 or more wins in consecutive seasons. He has three complete games this year.
David Murphy drove in four runs for the Rangers and hit a homer, as did Ian Kinsler. Adrian Beltre extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a third-inning single.
Tampa Bay starter Jeff Niemann (9-7) gave up seven runs in 4 2-3 innings.
Red Sox 14, Blue Jays 0
In Toronto, Jon Lester struck out 11 in seven innings to win his fourth straight decision, steering Boston to a huge win over Toronto.
Lester (15-6) did not allow any extra-base hits, and walked only one to improve to 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA in his past five starts. He also matched a season high for strikeouts and is 4-0 in his past six starts against Toronto.
Marco Scutaro and David Ortiz each matched a career-high with four hits while Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Josh Reddick homered as the Red Sox equalled a season-high with 20 hits.
Blue Jays starter Luis Perez (3-3) allowed a career-worst eight runs in 2 2-3 innings.
Tigers 10, Indians 1
In Cleveland, Detroit opened its lead over Cleveland in the AL Central to 8-1/2 games.
Victor Martinez drove in three runs for the Tigers, who have won five straight overall and six in a row against the Indians.
Detroit starter 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 one run over 6 1-3 innings.
Yankees 5, Orioles 3
In New York, the hosts had to wait until 2.15 a.m., in front of only about 500 die-hard or insomniac fans, to complete their win over Baltimore.
The game did not begin until 11:08 p.m. due to a rain delay of 4 hours, 3 minutes.
Francisco Cervelli hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning off Tommy Hunter (3-3). Two fans reached near the left-field wall to grab it, and even though Orioles manager Buck Showalter argued, the umpires upheld their original home-run call after a video replay.
Brett Gardner followed with a home run, and the AL East-leading Yankees won their sixth in a row. Cory Wade (4-0) won in relief.
Mariners 2, Angels 1
In Anaheim, Felix Hernandez won at Angel Stadium for the first time since 2006, as Seattle snapped a five-game skid with victory over Los Angeles.
Justin Smoak and Kyle Seager scored unearned runs for the Mariners, who had lost 18 of their last 21 games at Angel Stadium before Tuesday, when Hernandez (14-11) went eight innings and outpitched Ervin Santana.
Los Angeles committed four errors and dropped 3-1/2 games behind Texas in the AL West standings.
Santana (11-10) yielded seven hits over six muddled innings in his 200th career start for the Angels, losing for just the second time in 13 starts.
White Sox 3, Twins 0
In Minneapolis, Jake Peavy struck out a season-high nine to guide Chicago past Minnesota.
Peavy (7-7) pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings against a Twins team that had three players who were called up from the second tier of the minors in the past two days.
Alex Rios homered and Alejandro De Aza had two hits, including a triple, and an RBI for the White Sox, who have won three in a row.
Twins starter Liam Hendriks (0-1) allowed three runs over seven innings in his major league debut.
Royals 7, Athletics 4
In Oakland, Eric Hosmer and Jeff Francoeur hit back-to-back home runs in the second inning to set up Kansas City's win over Oakland.
Salvador Perez added three hits while six players drove in runs for the Royals, who have scored 29 runs in their past three road games.
Kansas City starter Danny Duffy (4-8) notched his first win in a month, allowing only four hits over 6 1-3 innings in what is likely his final start of the year.
A's starter Gio Gonzalez (12-12) gave up a career-worst 10 hits.
