at New York 6, Seattle 1: The slumping Mariners have lost four in a row, managing only seven runs during that stretch, and eight of 10 overall. They fell to 6-11 on the road and made two more errors after committing four in the first three innings of Friday night's 5-1 loss. "We're doing a lot of things we can't do. One is not fielding. One is not making the pitch when we have to. It's just something you can't do," Manager John McLaren said.

at Toronto 5, Chicago 2: The Blue Jays handed the White Sox their season-high fourth consecutive loss. "It's frustrating," White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen said. "All of a sudden, in one week, we forgot how to hit, how to catch the ball, how to run the bases, how to pitch. That happened quick."

at Minnesota 4, Detroit 1: Justin Verlander (1-5) retired the first 10 batters he faced but ran into trouble in the fourth inning. Mike Lamb singled with one out, Joe Mauer doubled and Justin Morneau was intentionally walked to load the bases. Lamb scored on Michael Cuddyer's groundout to give the Twins a 1-0 lead. Cuddyer singled in Lamb in the sixth and Craig Monroe homered after Verlander walked Delmon Young on four pitches with none out in the seventh.

at Boston 12, Tampa Bay 4: James Shields pitched a two-hit shutout in his last start Sunday against the Red Sox, but he gave up three runs before retiring a batter. He lasted 3 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs and 10 hits.

Kansas City 4, at Cleveland 2: Billy Butler's tiebreaking single keyed a four-run seventh inning. C.C. Sabathia (1-5) took a shutout into the seventh before the Royals strung together six hits against the reigning Cy Young Award winner and three relievers.

Texas 6, at Oakland 3: A.J. Murray yielded two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings a day after being called up from the minors.

at Angels 3, Baltimore 1: The Angels are 7-0 when Gary Matthews Jr. starts in right field.
