at Chicago 3, Cleveland 1: Carlos Quentin hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning to lift the White Sox to their eighth straight victory. Quentin had two RBIs and Jermaine Dye had a run-scoring single in the eighth to complete a three-game sweep of the Indians, who have scored only 13 runs during their six-game losing streak.
at Detroit 9, Seattle 2: Brandon Inge and Matt Joyce homered to help the Tigers continue their offensive resurgence by completing their first three-game sweep of the Mariners since 1995. After scoring 14 runs in their previous seven games -- six of them losses -- the Tigers scored 30 in the series against Seattle.
Texas 8, at Minnesota 7 (10 innings): Josh Hamilton continued his torrid start as a Ranger by hitting a two-out home run in the 10th inning. Hamilton, acquired in the off-season from Cincinnati, is hitting a league-best .335, has an AL-leading 12 home runs along with Chicago's Carlos Quentin and has a major-league leading 53 RBIs.
at New York 2, Baltimore 1: Robinson Cano singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning and the Yankees, moments after Manager Joe Girardi was ejected during a theatrical argument, won. Girardi, arguing a foul tip out by Jason Giambi, twice threw down his cap and kicked it once before kicking the dirt.
at Boston 11, Kansas City 8: The Red Sox got grand slams from J.D. Drew and Mike Lowell to finish a four-game sweep of the Royals after taking three from Milwaukee over the weekend. Manny Ramirez remained two home runs shy of becoming the 24th player to hit 500.
