Blue Jays 1, Rays 0: TORONTO -- The Blue Jays' Brandon Morrow lost a no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on a single by Evan Longoria, then stuck out his 17th batter of the game to finish off a victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

The three-game sweep was crippling for the Rays, who have lost a season-high five straight after briefly moving ahead of the New York Yankees in the AL East earlier in the week.

*

Yankees 7, Red Sox 2: NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter passed Babe Ruth on the career hits list and drove in three runs.

Mark Teixeira hit his 25th homer, becoming the fourth player to hit at least 25 in each of his first eight big league seasons, and Lance Berkman had two doubles.

*

Twins 5, Indians 4: CLEVELAND -- Jim Thome hit a two-run shot for career homer No. 578 and the Twins rallied for five runs in the fifth to pull within a half-game of the AL Central-leading White Sox.

Thome's drive against his former team came against David Huff (2-11), helping the Twins take two of three in the series and earn their 12th win in 16 games.

*

Orioles 4, White Sox 3: BALTIMORE -- Jeremy Guthrie outpitched Mark Buehrle, and the surging Orioles won for the fifth time in six games under new manager Buck Showalter.

Felix Pie homered for the Orioles, who took the lead for good with a two-run sixth.

*

Tigers 9, Angels 4: DETROIT -- Johnny Damon drove in three runs, Alex Avila and Will Rhymes had two RBIs apiece and the Tigers snapped a four-game losing streak while avoiding a series sweep.

*

Mariners 3, Royals 2: SEATTLE -- Jason Vargas allowed one run in six solid innings to win his seventh game at home, and Casey Kotchman's two-run single in the sixth gave Seattle the lead for good.

*

Reds 11, Cubs 4: CHICAGO -- Joey Votto and Jonny Gomes scored four runs apiece to back a strong start by Travis Wood, and Cincinnati beat the Chicago for its ninth win in 11 games.

Wood (3-1) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before fading late.

*

Padres 10, Diamondbacks 1: PHOENIX -- Mat Latos pitched six scoreless innings in a combined three-hitter, Jerry Hairston Jr. created havoc from the leadoff spot and San Diego avoided a three-game sweep by the last-place Diamondbacks.

*

Dodgers 8, Nationals 3: LOS ANGELES -- Ted Lilly overcame a rough start to win his second straight outing with Los Angeles, and the Dodgers capitalized on two Washington errors during a four-run first.

*

Braves 6, Giants 3: ATLANTA -- Derek Lowe pitched into the sixth inning before leaving with an injury and David Ross hit a two-run homer, helping the Braves get the victory.

Lowe (11-9) was bothered by cramping in his right hamstring.

*

Phillies 6, Mets 5: PHILADELPHIA -- Raul Ibanez sparked a five-run third inning with a three-run homer, and Philadelphia backed Roy Halladay with a dozen hits.

Ibanez clubbed a hanging knuckleball from R.A. Dickey off the batter's eye.

*

Rockies 8, Pirates 4: PITTSBURGH -- Carlos Gonzalez hit his 25th homer and finished with four hits, helping Colorado salvage a series split.
