> American League

Chicago White Sox 2, N.Y. Yankees 0: Yankees starter Phil Hughes aborted his bullpen session after 20 pitches Monday, citing "a lot of deadness" in his right shoulder, and there's no telling when he will take the mound again.

Toronto 6, Texas 4: Corey Patterson and Jose Bautista homered on consecutive pitches, and tough-luck starter Kyle Drabek got another win after three straight no-decisions.

Oakland at L.A. Angels: Jered Weaver was looking for his sixth win in as many starts. He leads the majors in wins, and has struck out a major league-leading 39 in 36 2/3 innings.

> National League

Pittsburgh 4, Washington 2: Brandon Wood had a two-run double in his first game for Pittsburgh and Paul Maholm retired the final 13 batters he faced in seven innings for the Pirates. Announced paid attendance was 12,457, but only about 2,600 made it through the turnstiles on a soggy night.

Florida 5, L.A. Dodgers 4: Omar Infante lined a two-out RBI single that left fielder Jerry Sands misjudged in the ninth inning, capping a two-run Marlins' rally. Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 22 games for the Dodgers.

Colorado 5, Chicago Cubs 3: The Rockies took advantage of four Chicago errors -- three by shortstop Starlin Castro -- and Huston Street converted his eighth straight save chance.

Cincinnati 9, Milwaukee 5: Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer, Bronson Arroyo pitched effectively into the seventh and the Reds jumped ahead with a six-run third inning.

Arizona 4, Philadelphia 0: Ian Kennedy outpitched Cliff Lee by throwing a three-hitter with 10 strikeouts in the first complete game of his major league career for Arizona.

Atlanta at San Diego: Atlanta has won 12 of its last 16 games at Petco Park, batting .301 with 25 homers in those contests.

> Around the horn

Los Angeles Dodgers: Former Texas Rangers president J. Thomas Schieffer was hired by Commissioner Bud Selig on Monday to run the team, less than a week after Major League Baseball took over operation of the franchise from owner Frank McCourt.
