* Toronto 6, at Chicago 4: Shaun Marcum (9-6) pitched effectively for 7 1/3 innings and the Blue Jays ended a scoreless tie with six runs in the eighth for their 11th win in 12 games. The White Sox, who have dropped four of five, remained one game ahead of the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central. Jim Thome hit his 538th homer off reliever Scott Downs in the bottom of the eighth as Chicago pulled to within 6-4, but B.J. Ryan hung on for his 29th save in the ninth.

* Kansas City 3, at Minnesota 2 (10 innings): David DeJesus hit the winning single off Dennys Reyes, keeping the Twins in second place for at least another day and wasting eight impressive innings by Francisco Liriano, who retired 17 of the last 18 batters he faced. The Twins have lost 12 of 18 overall, five of their last six extra-inning games, and now head off on a 10-game trip to Baltimore, Cleveland and Tampa Bay.

* at Baltimore 6, Cleveland 3: Nick Markakis, who had been three for 26 in September, had two hits and scored the go-ahead run in the fifth inning as the Orioles gained a split of the four-game series.

* Texas 6, at Oakland 1: Hank Blalock homered, Chris Davis and Joaquin Arias each drove in two runs and Dustin Nippert (3-4) matched his career high with seven strikeouts in five strong innings for the Rangers.

* at Angels 7, Seattle 4: A 7-0 lead turned into a record-tying 57th save for Francisco Rodriguez.
