NEW YORK (AP) -- Mike Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Boston Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium, bashing New York 13-9 Saturday for their fifth straight win.
The AL East leaders became the first visiting team in more than a century to score at least nine runs on three straight days against the Yankees. In fact, the last time it happened, they weren't called the Yankees -- Boston did it in 1912 to the Highlanders at Hilltop Park.
ORIOLES 4, WHITE SOX 3
BALTIMORE -- Matt Wieters hit a two-run single in the 10th inning to lift Baltimore to its third consecutive win.
Pinch-hitter Henry Urrutia started the winning rally with a one-out infield single against closer Addison Reed (5-3). Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson then went all the way to third on Nick Markakis' base hit.
ROYALS 4, TIGERS 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Salvador Perez hit a tiebreaking two-run homer off Justin Verlander in the sixth, helping Kansas City to the victory.
Perez's two-out drive to left made it 4-2. It was his 11th homer of the season.
Verlander (12-11) allowed four runs and eight hits in seven innings. The ace right-hander dropped to 0-3 with a 4.17 ERA in his last six starts.
ATHLETICS 2, ASTROS 1
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Dan Straily pitched seven scoreless innings to lead surging Oakland to another victory.
Yoenis Cespedes and Jed Lowrie homered as the A's won for the seventh time in nine games to remain on top of the AL West. They began the day with a half-game lead over Texas.
Straily (9-7) allowed two hits, struck out seven and walked one in his third consecutive victory. The right-hander has a 1.50 ERA over 18 innings during his winning streak.
BLUE JAYS 11, TWINS 2
MINNEAPOLIS -- Adam Lind hit a pair of three-run homers for Toronto, helping J.A. Happ snap a three-game losing streak.
Lind connected for his 18th homer in the Blue Jays' five-run first inning. He went deep again in the eighth for his second multihomer game this season and No. 10 for his career.
ANGELS 8, RANGERS 3
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Garrett Richards pitched seven effective innings, and the Angels parlayed three errors and another mammoth home run by Mark Trumbo into five early runs against Derek Holland to beat the Rangers.
The Rangers' fifth loss in six games, coupled with Oakland's 2-1 victory against Houston, put Texas 1 1-2 games behind the Athletics in the AL West race.
MARINERS 6, RAYS 2
SEATTLE -- James Paxton threw six strong innings allowing just one earned run in his major league debut, Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales hit solo homers and the Mariners continued Tampa Bay on its West Coast slide.
Tampa Bay lost for the seventh time in nine games on its swing through Seattle, Oakland and Los Angeles and saw its lead in the AL Wild Card race reduced to one game after both Cleveland and Baltimore won on Saturday.
