Red Sox complete rainy sweep of Yankees

Jason Bay hit a three-run homer in a four-run first inning against Joba Chamberlain as the Boston Red Sox beat New York 7-3 in the American League on Tuesday for a rainy two-game sweep in the first trip to the Yankees' $1.5 billion ballpark.
Boston improved to 5-0 against New York for the first time since 1985 and has outscored the Yankees 38-23. New York is 6-5 overall at its new home following three straight losses.
Chamberlain (1-1) allowed hits to his first five batters, then recovered to strike out a career-high 12 in 5 2-3 innings.
Josh Beckett (3-2) bounced back from two poor outings and allowed his only runs on Johnny Damon's three-run homer in the third.
Beckett allowed 10 hits in six-plus innings, lowering his ERA from 7.22 to 6.75. Hideki Okajima followed with six straight outs.
Singles by Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz put Boston ahead, and Bay homered into the left-field seats, the 37th homer in 11 games at Yankee Stadium. Bay is 10 for 18 (.556) with three homers and 10 RBIs against the Yankees this season.
Tigers 9, Twins 0
At Detroit, Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer, Clete Thomas had three hits in his season debut and rookie Rick Porcello threw seven scoreless innings to lead Detroit past Minnesota.
Thomas had a triple, double, single and walk _ driving in two runs _ and Josh Anderson had two hits and an RBI. Cabrera went 3 for 4 with four RBIs.
Porcello (2-3) gave up four hits and lasted seven innings, matching his best performance in those categories in five starts.
Nick Blackburn (2-2) gave up a career-high nine runs _ six earned _ eight hits and three walks over 3 1-3 innings.
Rays 6, Orioles 3
At St. Petersburg, Florida, Matt Garza pitched eight strong innings and major league RBI leader Evan Longoria drove in three runs to send Tampa Bay past Baltimore.
Garza (3-2) allowed three runs and four hits, improving to 6-0 lifetime against the Orioles.
Brian Roberts and Gregg Zaun homered to give the Orioles a 3-1 lead. Longoria's pop-fly double off Koji Uehara (2-2) tied it 3-all in the sixth. He added a two-run single in the seventh that made it 6-3.
Uehara allowed six runs (three earned) and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings, his first outing since being hit in the chest by a line drive last week.
Blue Jays 10, Indians 6
At Toronto, Adam Lind's three-run home run and Scott Rolen's solo shot led Toronto's comeback in a seven-run seventh inning.
Trailing 6-3 after Cleveland scored four times in the top of the seventh, the Blue Jays scored seven runs and six hits off four Indians relievers in the bottom half. Cleveland relievers have a combined ERA of 6.49 this season.
Making his major league debut, Toronto left-hander Brett Cecil allowed two runs _one earned _ and six hits in six innings.
Jhonny Peralta snapped an 0-for-14 slump by going 3-for-4 with two RBIs for Cleveland.
Rangers 7, Mariners 2, 10 innings
At Seattle, Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a grand slam that capped a six-run burst with two outs in the 10th inning off emergency fill-in Denny Stark as Texas won its fourth straight.
Seattle rookie Shawn Kelley entered to begin the 10th, threw three pitches to Elvis Andrus and then fell in pain from a strained muscle on his left side.
Stark (0-1) was summoned on no notice and retired the first two batters before the Rangers broke loose. Marlon Byrd and Nelson Cruz had RBI singles before Saltalamacchia hit his second career slam.
Texas starter Vicente Padilla allowed one hit and one unearned run in eight innings.
