New York 4, at Baltimore 2: Jason Giambi homered and drove in two runs to back an effective pitching performance by Andy Pettitte as the Yankees averted a three-game sweep. Pettitte gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings to improve to 24-6 lifetime against the Orioles, including 15-4 in Baltimore. He has more wins at Camden Yards than any visiting pitcher.
at Tampa Bay 5, Texas 3: Matt Garza (4-1) gave up two runs and four hits for the AL East leaders, who won two of three from the Rangers to hand Texas its first series loss in over a month. The Rays have won nine of their last 11 series, including six straight at home. B.J. Upton and Akinori Iwamura delivered RBI singles off Kason Gabbard (1-2), Evan Longoria had a sacrifice fly and Carlos Pena and pinch-hitter Cliff Floyd drew walks with the bases loaded for Tampa Bay, which has won 15 of 20 games.
Chicago 6, at Cleveland 5: Carlos Quentin drove in three runs, including a go-ahead, two-run double in a three-run seventh inning. Gavin Floyd (5-3) gave up two runs in the first, then retired 15 of 17 hitters before the Indians scored three times to take a 5-3 lead in the sixth. Bobby Jenks pitched the ninth for his 14th save in 16 chances, escaping a second-and-third, one-out jam when Ben Francisco and Victor Martinez popped out.
