After learning he had been elected for his 17th All-Star game appearance, Cal Ripken reached another milestone Monday night.
Ripken went two for four with a double and a home run for his 1,000th career extra-base hit, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the 100-degree heat and the Yankees, 9-1, at New York.
Ripken hit his 395th home run and a double to reach the extra-base milestone. He tied Oriole Hall of Famer Frank Robinson for 27th place on the career hits list with 2,943, and also passed former teammate and current coach Eddie Murray for 15th with 561 doubles.
"All those extra things are nice when you win," said Ripken, batting .310 a month shy of his 39th birthday. "What I feel really good about is walking out of Yankee Stadium after salvaging a split in this series."
B.J. Surhoff, hoping to get picked as a reserve for his first All-Star game, hit his 20th homer, singled twice and drove in four runs. He also made an outstanding catch in left field to preserve a 4-1 lead in the sixth.
"I have a strange feeling I'll be seeing him next week," said Yankee Manager Joe Torre, who will help select the reserves and manage the AL team next Tuesday.
Oakland 4, Texas 2--Tim Hudson pitched seven shutout innings and John Jaha drove in the go-ahead runs with a two-run single in the sixth as the Athletics defeated the Rangers at Oakland.
Jason Giambi went four for four and Tony Phillips had two hits, including career No. 2,000, as the Athletics won for only the fourth time in 12 games.
John Burkett (2-4) got his first loss since May 17 despite pitching 5 2/3 strong innings. He had given up only two runs in his previous 18 innings before the A's scored four times in the sixth.
Despite the loss, the Rangers lead their division at the halfway point for the fifth time in team history.
Boston 4, Tampa Bay 2--Mike Stanley's home run in the second at St. Petersburg, Fla., and a three-run Boston fourth were enough for Mark Portugal, who defeated the Devil Rays for the third time this season.
Portugal (5-6) went six innings, giving up two runs and seven hits, to improve to 3-0 in four starts against the Devil Rays.
Tampa Bay stranded nine men and went one for 12 with runners in scoring position against Portugal and Derek Lowe, who struck out Jose Canseco and Fred McGriff to get out of a jam in the seventh.
The Red Sox played without All-Star Nomar Garciaparra, who sat out for a third consecutive day with a sore left groin.
