MLB Headline News

 BOSTON (AP) -Joe Saunders pitched six solid innings to win his fourth consecutive decision, and Gary Matthews Jr. singled in the go-ahead runs in the Angels' four-run seventh inning on Thursday as Los Angeles beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5.
Saunders (4-0) left trailing 3-1. The Angels rallied in the seventh, when three Red Sox relievers allowed four singles and three walks to give Los Angeles a 5-3 lead.
Scot Shields pitched a perfect eighth, then gave up David Ortiz's two-run homer with two outs in the ninth. Francisco Rodriguez earned his ninth save.
A day after hitting two solo homers in a win over the Red Sox, Matthews had three hits and three RBIs. He drove in a pair with a bases-loaded single in the seventh after the Angels rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie it.
Javier Lopez started the seventh and did not record an out, then Manny Delcarmen (0-1) had an identical line with two runs allowed on one hit and one walk.
Tigers 8, Rangers 2
DETROIT (AP) - Magglio Ordonez hit two of Detroit's five homers to lead the Tigers to their season-best fourth straight win. Detroit outscored the Rangers 37-10 in the three-game series, while Texas has lost seven straight.
Zach Miner (1-1) followed with 3 1-3 hitless innings as the Tigers pulled away.
Jason Jennings (0-4) allowed five runs on five hits and five walks in five innings, raising his ERA to 7.46 in five starts.
Michael Young homered for Texas in the first, as did Curtis Granderson for the Tigers.
Athletics 11, Twins 2
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Donnie Murphy hit solo homers in the fifth and sixth innings, but they both came after the A's had jumped on Francisco Liriano for six runs in the first.
Emil Brown hit a two-run single as the A's batted around in the first and chased Liriano (0-3) after only two-thirds of an inning. It was the shortest outing by a Twins starter since May 30, 2002, when Brad Radke lasted one-third of an inning before leaving with an injury.
Greg Smith (2-0) allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings, struck out three and walked one in his first career appearance, helping Oakland win for the fifth time in six games.
Frank Thomas, who agreed to terms with the A's after being released Sunday by Toronto, went 0-for-3 with two walks. He was back in the cleanup spot as designated hitter.
