>American League

Minnesota at Cleveland, ppd.: The Indians' 1-0 lead was washed away after two innings by rain Sunday and the game against the Twins postponed. No makeup date was announced after the teams waited 2 hours, 55 minutes to call it.

Toronto 5, L.A. Angels 4 (10): Edwin Encarnacion hit an RBI single in the 10th inning for the Jays to win it. Jon Rauch pitched one inning for Toronto to pick up his fifth victory of the season against three losses.

Baltimore 8, Detroit 5: Nick Markakis homered and drove in four runs, while Jo-Jo Reyes allowed four hits over six innings to earn his first win with Baltimore, as the Orioles avoided a three-game sweep.

Chicago White Sox 6, Kansas City 2: Brent Lillibridge hit a three-run homer, and John Danks pitched six strong innings for the White Sox. Chicago improved its abysmal home record to 26-33 and moved within four games of AL Central-leading Detroit.

Texas 7, Oakland 6: David Murphy hit a tiebreaking RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning for the Rangers, who swept the series. First-place Texas extended its winning streak in the rivalry to eight games. The Rangers (69-52) also moved a season-best 17 games over .500.

Seattle 5, Boston 3: Charlie Furbush allowed just one run in a career-best seven innings, while Casper Wells homered and scored two runs. The Mariners became the first team since late June to win a series against the Red Sox, a span of 11 straight series Boston had won or split.
