* at Minnesota 6, New York 5: Delmon Young had three doubles and three runs batted in, and Joe Mauer hit his long-awaited first homer of the season for the Twins. Young's breakout performance at the plate comes after a rough first two months in Minnesota. He began the game batting .264 with no homers and only 15 RBIs after coming over in a trade from Tampa Bay. The 22-year-old had run-scoring doubles in the second and sixth innings before giving the Twins the lead for good with another two-bagger against Kyle Farnsworth (0-2) that scored Michael Cuddyer in the eighth.

* Cleveland 13, at Texas 9: Casey Blake homered twice and matched a career high with seven RBIs before Ben Francisco hit a tiebreaking two-run homer to power the Indians to the win. Francisco's home run in the seventh inning came on the first pitch by reliever Joaquin Benoit, breaking an 8-8 tie after the Indians had blown a five-run lead. Eddie Guardado (0-1) came on at the start of the seventh and gave up a single to Asdrubal Cabrera. Benoit then left a breaking ball over the plate for Francisco, who hit his third homer of the season.

* at Oakland 3, Detroit 2: Bobby Crosby's run-scoring single in the ninth inning lifted the Athletics to the victory. Crosby doubled in his first two at-bats before grounding out and hitting into a double play. Kurt Suzuki led off the ninth with a sharp single against Francisco Cruceta (0-3) and went to second on Jack Hannahan's sacrifice. He scored easily as Crosby's hit traveled to the wall in right-center field.

* at Baltimore 6, Boston 3: Adam Jones broke a tie with a three-run double in the eighth inning, and the Orioles avoided a four-game sweep.

* Angels 4, at Seattle 2: Ervin Santana gained his eighth victory and Jeff Mathis homered for the Angels.
