 CLEVELAND (AP) -Rocked for three homers in the first inning, C.C. Sabathia buckled down to stay unbeaten and Jhonny Peralta had a career-high five RBIs as the Cleveland Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays 12-4 on Tuesday night.
After enduring a season-opening month of snow, postponements and travel, Cleveland began May with a comeback victory, scoring nine consecutive runs to win for the eighth time in nine games.
Sabathia (4-0) found himself down 3-0 five batters into the game. But the left-hander settled in and held the Blue Jays to one hit over the next five innings, retiring 16 of the final 17. He walked none and struck out nine in six innings.
Peralta hit a two-run double in the third and three-run homer in the fifth off A.J. Burnett (2-2).
Travis Hafner added a two-run homer and Trot Nixon a three-run shot for the Indians.
Athletics 5, Red Sox 4
BOSTON (AP) - Dan Johnson doubled home the winning run in the 10th inning after Jonathan Papelbon had his first blown save opportunity of the season and Oakland stopped surging Boston.
The Red Sox had won four of five games and began the day with the best record in baseball but wasted a 4-2 lead and another strong performance by Curt Schilling.
Papelbon allowed a tying two-run homer by Travis Buck in the ninth.
Oakland scored the winning run off Brendan Donnelly (0-1) on back-to-back doubles by Mike Piazza and Johnson. Justin Duchscherer (2-1) pitched the ninth and Huston Street worked the 10th for his seventh save.
Tigers 5, Orioles 4
DETROIT (AP) - Pinch-hitter Sean Casey hit a tiebreaking single with one out in the eighth inning to lift the Detroit.
Craig Monroe also homered for Detroit and Placido Polanco 4-for-5 with two RBIs. The Tigers rallied for two runs in the eighth against Danys Baez (0-1).
Reliever Joel Zumaya (1-1) pitched two innings for the victory. He struck out four and allowed one hit. Todd Jones pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 11 chances.
Twins 9, Devil Rays 1
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Sidney Ponson pitched seven impressive innings and Michael Cuddyer drove in two runs for Minnesota before leaving with an injury.
Ponson (2-3) gave up five hits. Both of his wins this season have come against the Devil Rays.
The top of the sixth ended on a strange play when Cuddyer lost his balance rounding second base on Justin Morneau's two-out single and did a forward roll before being tagged out by third baseman Ty Wigginton. Cuddyer left one inning later with a bruised back.
Minnesota's Torii Hunter doubled in the seventh, extending his career-high hitting streak to 16 games.
Rays starter Edwin Jackson (0-4) allowed six runs - four earned - and five hits in 1 1-3 innings.
