>Interleague games

N.Y. Yankees 4, Cincinnati 0: Andy Pettitte pitched eight shutout innings for his first regular-season win since July 2010, leading the Yankees. Making his second major league start since ending his one-year retirement, the 39-year-old left-hander (1-1) limited the young, free-swinging Reds to four hits -- all singles. With a fastball that reached 90 mph, an excellent cutter and a sharp curve, he struck out nine and walked one.

Miami 3, Cleveland 2: Carlos Zambrano pitched seven strong innings to help the Marlins open interleague play by beating the Indians. Miami broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez. All three Marlins runs were scored by batters who had started rallies with walks.

Philadelphia 6, Boston 4: Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings, and Hunter Pence and Freddy Galvis homered to lead the Phillies to their sixth straight victory. It was the sixth straight win for Hamels, who improved to 4-0 in five career starts against Boston.

Atlanta 5, Tampa Bay 3: Tommy Hanson pitched seven effective innings and Freddie Freeman drove in two runs for the Braves. Atlanta's Chipper Jones left after seven innings because of a bruised left calf.

Baltimore 2, Washington 1 (11): Nick Markakis homered into the second deck in right field in the 11th to life the Orioles. Markakis' blast off Nationals reliever Ryan Mattheus (2-1) helped the Orioles improve to 6-2 in extra innings.

Texas 4, Houston 1: Adrian Beltre homered and drove in two runs and Michael Young broke out of a slump with two hits and an RBI for the Rangers. Facing a left-handed starter for the seventh time in their last 12 games, the Rangers got to Wandy Rodriguez (3-4) for a season-high 10 hits and three runs in six innings.

Arizona 6, Kansas City 4: Miguel Montero piled up three RBIs, driving in the go-ahead runs with a double in the eighth inning for the Diamondbacks.

Minnesota 11, Milwaukee 3: Scott Diamond lost his scoreless streak. He still won his third straight start for the Twins. Diamond (3-0) gave up a run in the first, ending the 14-inning scoreless stretch he put together in two starts since he was called up from the minors.

Seattle 4, Colorado 0: Kevin Millwood tossed a two-hitter for his first shutout in nearly nine years and Mike Carp hit a solo homer, helping the Mariners snap a four-game skid. It was also the 22nd complete game of the 37-year-old righty's career.

L.A. Angels at San Diego: The Angels, who began a 10-game road trip were hoping some games against the National League will inspire slumping slugger Albert Pujols even more since he wreaked havoc on the league with St. Louis.

Oakland at San Francisco: Friday's matchup was the 87th in the series for the Athletics and Giants, with Oakland holding a slim 45-41 advantage overall but coming in five games under .500 at 19-24 on San Francisco's home field.
