 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez pitched into the eighth inning, Ryan Raburn hit two home runs and the Cleveland Indians pounded the Kansas City Royals 9-0 on Monday night to split their four-game series.
Raburn hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning and a solo homer in the eighth. Raburn finished with four hits and Jason Kipnis also went deep to pace a suddenly potent Indians offense.
Not that all the offense was needed.
Jimenez (1-2) allowed only two walks and an infield single by Billy Butler over his first seven innings. Otherwise, he kept the Royals off balance in a dazzling start that brought back memories of the pitcher who once threw a no-hitter for the Colorado Rockies.
Meanwhile, Wade Davis (2-2) made a second straight miserable start for the Royals. The right-hander allowed eight runs and 12 hits and three walks in just 4 2-3 innings.
ASTROS 9, YANKEES 1
NEW YORK (AP) - Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, leading Houston to the victory.
In their first game in the Bronx as an AL team, the Astros peppered Andy Pettitte (3-2) for 10 hits and seven runs, both season highs for the left-hander. Brandon Barnes and Corporan had two-run doubles and Barnes added an RBI single and a double. Barnes and Corporan each set career highs for hits and RBIs.
Houston bounced back from a four-game sweep in Boston with an enthusiastic win over the Yankees, who had just taken four straight from Toronto.
The Astros had 17 hits in improving the AL's worst record to 8-18. Lucas Harrell (3-2) pitched 6 1-3 innings to get the victory.
Vernon Wells had an RBI single in the sixth for New York.
TIGERS 4, TWINS 3
DETROIT (AP) - Prince Fielder's towering three-run homer in the sixth inning put Detroit ahead, and the Tigers held on for their fourth straight win.
Detroit trailed 3-1 when Andy Dirks reached on a bunt single and Miguel Cabrera walked. Fielder hit the first pitch over the wall in left-center for an opposite-field homer. That part of the fence is about 405 feet from home plate.
Max Scherzer (3-0) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out 10 without a walk. Drew Smyly finished the eighth and got the first two outs of the ninth, and Joaquin Benoit finished for his second save.
Mike Pelfrey (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. Josh Willingham went deep for Minnesota.
