at Texas 8, Oakland 4: Josh Hamilton homered and drove in three runs and the Rangers finished 19-10 in May, the first time they've won 19 games in a month since June 1983. The Rangers (29-28) have won 22 of 34 games since starting the season 7-16, and crawled over the break-even mark for the first time since they were 5-4. Eric Chavez had three hits, and Travis Buck and Jack Hannahan each drove in two runs for the A's, who equaled a season-high with their fourth loss in a row. Oakland scored three runs in the fifth to tie the score, 3-3, before Texas took the lead for good in the bottom of the inning. Sidney Ponson (4-1) gave up four runs and nine hits in seven innings for Texas.

at Tampa Bay 2, Chicago 0: Scott Kazmir won his fifth start in a row, giving up three hits in seven innings. The 2007 AL strikeout champion set a Rays record for wins in a month, improving to 5-1 since spending all of April on the disabled list because of a left elbow strain.

at Seattle 5, Detroit 0: Felix Hernandez gave up only two hits in seven innings, and Kenji Johjima likely scored the most unusual run of his career with a steal of home. The Tigers have been shut out a major league-leading nine times, three times their total from last year.

Boston 6, at Baltimore 3: Manny Ramirez became the 24th player to reach 500 career home runs. David Aardsma (2-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Jonathan Papelbon worked the ninth for his 16th save.

New York 7, at Minnesota 6 (12 innings): Bobby Abreu broke a 12th-inning tie with a one-out single. Alex Rodriguez had two RBIs.

at Kansas City 4, Cleveland 2: David DeJesus homered and Kyle Davies pitched five strong innings to help the Royals end a 12-game slide.

at Angels 3, Toronto 2 (10 innings): Maicer Izturis set up the winning run with a bunt single, his fourth hit of the game, and pinch-hitter Juan Rivera delivered an RBI single in the 10th.
