 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Bartolo Colon matched a major league record by winning his 12th straight start against the Texas Rangers, pitching six innings in a 6-3 victory Saturday that improved the Angels to 5-0 this season against their AL West rivals.
Given a 2-0 lead before he threw his first pitch, Colon (4-0) allowed three runs and five hits, struck out six and walked two.
The only other pitcher to win 12 straight starts against an opponent was Boston's Pedro Martinez against Seattle from 1998-2004.
Francisco Rodriguez worked the ninth for his 12th save. Kameron Loe (1-3) allowed five runs and eight hits in seven innings.
Red Sox 13, Orioles 4
BOSTON (AP) - Kevin Youkilis singled off Jon Leicester (0-1) for a 5-4 lead in the sixth, and Alex Cora added a two-run single in the seventh.
Julio Lugo had four of Boston's 15 hits, including an RBI single in the eighth.
A night after a 6-3 loss to the Orioles, AL East-leading Boston improved its record against Baltimore to 18-4 since the start of last season.
Javier Lopez (1-0) relieved Curt Schilling and allowed a tying groundout but retired all three batters he faced.
Blue Jays 5, Devil Rays 4
TORONTO (AP) - Vernon Wells scored the go-ahead run from first base on Lyle Overbay's two-out single in the seventh off Brian Stokes (1-5) as Toronto won its second straight following a nine-game losing streak.
Frank Thomas hit his 492nd homer and Adam Lind also connected for the Blue Jays, helping send Tampa Bay to its sixth straight loss.
Scott Downs (1-0) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings, and Jeremy Accardo worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his first save of the season.
Tigers 8, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The surging Detroit Tigers sent the reeling Twins to their fourth straight defeat, and Minnesota lost AL MVP Justin Morneau to a broken nose in the process.
Magglio Ordonez and Craig Monroe each drove in two runs to back Chad Durbin (3-1), who allowed two runs, seven hits and three walks in six innings. Detroit has won 11 of 12, while Minnesota has lost four straight.
AL MVP Justin Morneau left the game in the eighth inning after a relay throw bounced and broke his nose, another piece of bad news on another bad day for the Twins. Morneau's status was announced as day to day.

Indians 6, Athletics 3
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Fausto Carmona recovered from a shaky first inning to win his fourth straight start, and Josh Barfield hit a pair of run-scoring triples as Cleveland stopped a three-game losing streak.
Carmona (4-1) extended the longest winning streak of his major league career, allowing three runs, six hits and four walks in seven innings. The 23-year-old right-hander fell behind 3-0 in the first, when Jack Cust hit his third home run in three days.
Cust's homer was his fifth in 19 at-bats since Oakland acquired him from San Diego on May 3.
Dallas Braden (1-2), called up earlier in the day from Triple-A Sacramento, gave up four runs - three earned - and six hits in four innings.
