 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Drew Hutchison outdueled Yu Darvish and Melky Cabrera hit a two-run double in the eighth inning to lift the Toronto Blue Jays to a 2-0 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
Cabrera's liner sailed just beyond the outstretched glove of Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland, scoring Erik Kratz and Anthony Gose.
Hutchison (2-3) shut out Texas on three singles in his first career complete game, earning his first victory since his first start of the season on April 1.
Kratz and Gose each reached against Darvish (3-2) on infield bunts. The right-handed hitting Kratz bunted to third and beat an off-balance throw by Adrian Beltre. Gose, a left-handed hitter, drag bunted up the first-base line. Moreland's throw to second baseman Rougned Odor covering first base wasn't in time.
Darvish was making his first start since throwing a one-hitter against Boston last Friday that Major League Baseball ruled on Wednesday was a two-hitter.
TIGERS 1, RED SOX 0
BOSTON (AP) - Max Scherzer tossed six shutout innings, outdueling Jon Lester and leading Detroit over Boston in the opener of a three-game series.
Torii Hunter delivered an RBI single in the first inning for the Tigers, playing their first game against the defending champion Red Sox since losing last year's American League Championship Series in six games.
Scherzer (6-1), the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, allowed three hits over six-plus innings in winning his sixth straight start and lowering his league-leading ERA to 1.83. The right-hander struck out seven, walked four and was removed after yielding a leadoff single to Mike Carp in the seventh.
Joba Chamberlain retired the side in the eighth and closer Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save of the season.
The game was delayed 47 minutes by rain in the top of the fourth inning.
ATHLETICS 11, INDIANS 1
CLEVELAND (AP) - Josh Reddick homered twice, including a grand slam, and drove in a career-high six runs, and Josh Donaldson added a three-run shot in Oakland's rout of Cleveland.
Reddick's second career grand slam and Donaldson's homer sparked an eight-run second inning. Reddick added a two-run homer in the seventh.
Sonny Gray (5-1) allowed one run and two hits with nine strikeouts in six innings for Oakland, which has won seven of eight.
Both homers in Oakland's biggest inning of the season came off Zach McAllister (4-3), who struck out the side in the first, but retired only one batter in the second for the shortest outing of his career.
Reddick came into Friday in an 8-for-43 skid over his last 13 games.
ORIOLES 4, ROYALS 0
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chris Tillman tossed his first career shutout and Nelson Cruz drove in two runs for Baltimore.
Tillman (4-2) scattered five hits and a walk while striking out three. His dominant outing came one night after Wei-Yin Chen and four relievers combined to beat Kansas City 2-1.
Chris Davis homered and Steve Clevenger also drove in a run for the Orioles.
Jeremy Guthrie (2-3) lasted eight innings against his former team, allowing four runs, eight hits and a walk while striking out two. He is 0-3 with four no-decisions in his last seven starts.
Tillman lasted more than six innings for the first time since April 11, a span of five starts. The right-hander won for the first time in four starts this month.
TWINS 5, MARINERS 4
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kyle Gibson allowed one run in seven innings, Brian Dozier and Josmil Pinto homered, and Minnesota held on to beat Seattle.
Dozier and Trevor Plouffe each hit RBI doubles in the third inning against Chris Young (3-1) to give the Twins an early lead on their way to their fifth win in their last six home games.
Gibson (4-3) hadn't earned a victory since winning his first three starts this season. He struck out four and recorded 13 groundball outs to lower his ERA to 4.20.
Robinson Cano reached base for the 24th consecutive game and broke the Mariners' 21-inning scoreless drought with an RBI double in the fifth.
