* at Minnesota 7, Texas 6 (12 innings): Howie Clark's single over the head of Josh Hamilton in center field lifted the Twins in a game that saw reliever Bobby Korecky become the first Twins pitcher to get a hit in an American League game. Korecky batted when Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire simply didn't have any other options in the 11th after pinch-hitting for second baseman Alexi Casilla and shortstop Adam Everett in the ninth. Those decisions forced him to move Brendan Harris from designated hitter to shortstop in the 10th, thereby forfeiting the DH.

* Tampa Bay 7, at Oakland 6 (13 innings): Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer in the 13th inning and the Rays overcame a pair of home runs by Frank Thomas to win. The A's have lost eight of 10, blowing an early 3-0 lead in their first game home after a 2-7 trip that first baseman Mike Sweeney called "embarrassing."

* at Boston 7, Kansas City 0: Jon Lester, who survived cancer to pitch the clincher of Boston's 2007 World Series victory, pitched the first no-hitter in the majors this season.
