White Sox hammer Yankees 14-7

White Sox hammer Yankees 14-7

Chicago's A.J. Pierzynski homered twice, and Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez also went long as the White Sox pounded the Yankees so hard that New York brought in an outfielder to pitch in a 14-7 romp on Friday.
The White Sox made it a short and sour major league debut for Yankees starter Adam Warren, who didn't last even three innings, though it was replacement David Phelps (1-3) who took the loss.
By the end, the Yankees brought in outfielder Dewayne Wise for his pro pitching debut, and he got the last two outs to close out Chicago's four-run ninth inning.
White Sox starter Jose Quintana (3-1) fell behind 4-0 in the first inning, then hung in to give Chicago a fourth straight win in a matchup of American League division leaders.

RANGERS 4, ATHLETICS 3
In Arlington, Texas, Craig Gentry's bases-loaded triple in the eighth capped a four-run rally that lifted Texas over Oakland.
Gentry, who entered in the seventh, lifted a fly ball that gave the Rangers a 4-2 lead. Yoenis Cespedes appeared to misjudge Gentry's ball as he took a few steps in at first before it flew over his head.
Oakland reliever Grant Balfour (1-2) issued a bases-loaded walk to Nelson Cruz with two outs in the eighth before he was replaced.
Rangers starter Matt Harrison (11-3) threw a season-high 121 pitches over eight innings, allowing two runs. He joined Tampa Bay's David Price as the AL's only 11-game winners.

BLUE JAYS 7, ANGELS 5
In Toronto, Adam Lind hit two home runs and Yunel Escobar had a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning as Toronto defeated Los Angeles.
Promoted on Monday after more than a month in the minors, Lind hit a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo drive in the seventh. It was his first multihomer game this season and the eighth of his career.
Escobar went 3 for 4 with two RBIs as the Blue Jays snapped a three-game losing skid and halted Los Angeles' winning streak at four games.
Toronto's Francisco Cordero (3-4) worked two-thirds of an inning for the win.
Jordan Walden (2-2) took the loss for the Angels.

ORIOLES 9, INDIANS 8
In Baltimore, Ryan Flaherty singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning as Baltimore edged Cleveland.
Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer and Xavier Avery went long as the Orioles did enough to beat an Indians team which had a season-high 16 hits.
Chris Davis started the seventh-inning with a two-out single off Joe Smith (5-2). After Wieters walked, Flaherty delivered an RBI single.
Xavier Avery hit his first major league homer in the eighth to make it 9-7.
Baltimore's Matt Lindstrom (1-0) got the last out in the top of the seventh to take the win.

RAYS 4, TIGERS 2
In St. Petersburg, Florida, Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings homered twice to power Tampa Bay past Detroit.
Rays starter David Price (11-4) allowed two runs before leaving the game because of what the Rays described as lower back tightness after seven innings. He struck out seven and walked one.
Price has won three straight decisions for Tampa Bay, which ended a four-game skid.
Jennings went deep against Justin Verlander (8-5) twice and Ben Zobrist also hit a solo homer off the Tigers starter, who allowed four runs over six innings.
___
ROYALS 4, TWINS 3
In Minneapolis, Luis Mendoza allowed one run over a career-high eight innings to steer Kansas City past Minnesota and to its fourth straight.
Mendoza (3-4) retired the final 13 batters he faced. He struck out five in his first win since May 13, and first as a starter since April 26. Jonathan Broxton allowed two runs in the ninth, but earned the save.
Salvador Perez homered for the Royals, who are four games under .500 for the first time since April 16.
Making his second start of the season, Minnesota's Brian Duensing (1-4) allowed three runs and was removed after allowing three straight hits to start the fifth.
