CLEVELAND (AP) - Jason Kipnis scored the winning run in the ninth inning when Brendan Ryan's throw pulled catcher Jesus Montero off the plate, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.
Kipnis, who won Friday's game with a three-run homer in the 10th, sparked the winning rally with a leadoff single against Oliver Perez (1-1). He moved to third on Asdrubal Cabrera's double and Nick Swisher was walked intentionally to load the bases.
Mark Reynolds then hit a sharp ground ball that forced Ryan to make a diving stop, and he was unable to get the forceout at home.
The dramatic victory came after Chris Perez (2-0) blew a save opportunity in the top half of the inning, allowing two-out solo homers to Raul Ibanez and Justin Smoak. Reynolds hit his 12th homer and finished with three RBIs as the Indians won for the 16th time in their last 20 games.
YANKEES 7, BLUE JAYS 2
NEW YORK (AP) - Robinson Cano hit a pair of two-run homers to back a solid effort by David Phelps, and the Yankees beat the Blue Jays for the ninth straight time at Yankee Stadium.
Phelps (2-2) struck out eight while allowing one run in a season-high seven innings, helping New York beat Toronto for the eighth time in nine games this season.
Cano connected off Brandon Morrow with two outs in the third after Brett Gardner drove in the first run of the game with an RBI single. Cano also hit one off Morrow (1-3) with two out in the fifth, a shot that gave him his second multihomer game of the year. He has 12 such games for his career.
Travis Hafner returned to the Yankees' lineup after missing five games because of right shoulder inflammation and hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning.
Edwin Encarnacion connected for his 12th homer for Toronto.
