DETROIT (AP) -David Wright and Carlos Delgado homered and Jorge Sosa won for the sixth time as the New York Mets snapped a four-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over Detroit on Friday night.
Wright hit his 10th homer off Tigers starter Chad Durbin in the fourth inning to make it 1-0. Delgado put New York ahead 2-0 with his 10th homer in the seventh.
Sosa (6-1) scattered four hits over eight innings in his longest outing of the year. He struck out five and walked two.
Billy Wagner pitched a perfect ninth for his 14th save.
Durbin (5-2) gave up three runs and six hits in eight-plus innings. He struck out four and walked one in his longest outing since April 25.
Yankees 5, Pirates 4, 10 innings
NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter hit a game-winning infield single with the bases loaded in the 10th inning as the New York Yankees extended a winning streak to four for the first time this season.
Robinson Cano doubled to left-center leading off the 10th against Matt Capps (3-3). He was sacrificed to third. Miguel Cairo followed with an infield single. After Cairo went to second on defensive indifference, Johnny Damon was intentionally walked and Jeter hit a slow bouncer that second baseman Freddy Sanchez couldn't come up with.
Chris Duffy hit a two-run, inside-the-park home run, putting the Pirates ahead 4-2 in the seventh when his catchable seventh-inning liner sailed over Melky Cabrera and bounced to the center-field wall.
The Yankees tied it in the bottom half on RBI singles by Jeter and Jorge Posada. Mariano Rivera (2-3) pitched his first two-inning outing of year in relief.
Pittsburgh lost for the seventh time in 10 games.
Orioles 4, Rockies 2
BALTIMORE (AP) - Nick Markakis hit a two-run homer to lead Baltimore.
Steve Trachsel (5-4) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings for the Orioles, who have won two straight following a five-game skid.
Both managers were ejected from the game by first base umpire Larry Vanover. Baltimore's Sam Perlozzo was tossed after arguing a balk call in the sixth inning, and Clint Hurdle was thrown out for disputing a check-swing strike call against Ryan Spilborghs in the eighth.
Chris Ray, the fourth Baltimore reliever, got four outs for his 13th save.
Markakis singled and scored in the first inning, then hit his ninth home run in the fifth to put Baltimore up 4-1.
Jeff Francis (5-5) gave up four runs and seven hits in seven innings for the Rockies.
Reds 4, Indians 3
CINCINNATI (AP) - Homer Bailey benefited from Cincinnati's three home runs, including the 577th of Ken Griffey Jr.'s career, to win his major league debut.
Brandon Phillips and Jeff Conine also homered in support of Bailey, Cincinnati's No. 1 pick in the 2004 draft. He allowed two runs and five hits with four walks and three strikeouts. He left after five innings with a 3-2 lead. David Weathers got the last four outs for his 12th save despite giving up a homer to pinch-hitter Ryan Garko in the ninth.
Cliff Lee (2-4) gave up four hits and four runs in six innings.
Griffey led off the sixth against Lee with a home run to right field, his 14th of the season, to give Cincinnati a 4-2 lead.
