Trailing by two runs, Boston loaded the bases in the ninth. Mike Napoli hit an RBI groundout before Tommy Hunter, Baltimore’s fifth reliever, retired Mike Carp on a game-ending grounder for his fifth save.

The game began at 11:09 a.m., about an hour before Meb Keflezighi crossed the marathon finish line just over a mile away as the first American man to win since Greg Meyer in 1983.

Wei-Yin Chen (3-1) allowed three runs and five hits in five innings. Buchholz (0-2) gave up seven hits in 2 1-3 innings.

INDIANS 4, ROYALS 3

CLEVELAND • Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley hit two-run homers, powering the Indians over the Royals when a fearless squirrel ran around Progressive Field and provided some extra entertainment.

Kipnis connected in the sixth inning off Jeremy Guthrie (2-1), overcoming a 3-2 deficit. Brantley provided Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the fourth.

Zach McAllister (3-0) gave up six hits and overcame three errors — one on his errant throw.

Alex Gordon and Omar Infante each had two of the Royals’ six hits.

The game was momentarily delayed in the second inning when a squirrel ran onto the field. The pesky intruder hung around for another inning before it was shooed into the Indians’ center-field bullpen.

WHITE SOX 3, TIGERS 1

DETROIT • Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo hit RBI doubles in the seventh inning, and the White Sox rallied for a victory over the Tigers.

Chicago scored three runs in the seventh off Anibal Sanchez (0-2) after managing only one hit in the first six innings. John Danks (2-0) allowed six hits and three walks in 6 1-3 innings, but the Tigers could score only one run off him.

Ronald Belisario got five outs in relief for the White Sox, and Matt Lindstrom pitched the ninth for his second save.

ASTROS 7, MARINERS 2

SEATTLE • Matt Dominguez homered and drove in three runs, Dallas Keuchel struck out a season-high eight and the Astros broke a seven-game skid with a win over the Mariners.

It is the seventh straight loss for Seattle, which is the longest active streak in the majors.
