BLUE JAYS 11, ORIOLES 3
BALTIMORE • Mark Buehrle allowed one run over seven innings to win his third straight start, and the Blue Jays hit three home runs and had a season-high 17 hits in an victory over the Orioles.
Jose Bautista hit a three-run drive and Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie had solo shots to help Toronto win the decisive matchup of the three-game series.
Rasmus, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind each collected three hits for the Blue Jays, who enjoyed their highest scoring game of the year at the expense of Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3) and three Baltimore relievers.
Buehrle (3-0) gave up five hits, walked none and struck out two.
Chris Davis hit his first homer of the season for Baltimore.
TWINS 4, ROYALS 3
MINNEAPOLIS • Pitcher Wade Davis made a wild flip home on a comebacker in the eighth inning and the Twins rallied past the City Royals for a three-game sweep.
A madcap sequence put the Twins ahead and a crazy play ended it, too.
With two outs and none on in the ninth, Mike Moustakas popped a ball straight up. As he stood to watch it in the batter’s box, catcher Kurt Suzuki tripped over him, resulting in an interference call for the final out.
After the Royals scored three times in the eighth for a 3-2 lead, reliever Aaron Crow (0-1) walked two Minnesota batters to start the bottom half.
Davis struck out Joe Mauer, but Trevor Plouffe walked to load the bases. Chris Herrmann then hit a tapper back to the mound and Davis’ toss sailed past catcher Salvador Perez. Pedro Florimon scored the tying run and Brian Dozier slid home under Perez’s return throw to Davis covering the plate.
Casey Fien (1-0) got one out and Glen Perkins posted his third save.
WHITE SOX 4, INDIANS 3
CHICAGO • Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run homer off John Axford in the ninth inning, rallying the White Sox over the Indians.
The Indians scored twice in the top of the ninth, getting the go-ahead run on a wild pitch by closer Matt Lindstrom (1-1).
Axford (0-1) came in seeking his fifth save in as many chances. He issued a leadoff walk to Jordan Danks, who stole second.Next Page >
