 CLEVELAND (AP) -C.C. Sabathia joined Boston's Josh Beckett as the majors' only 11-game winners and finally beat his hometown team again, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 5-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.
Sabathia (11-2) allowed nine hits in his second complete game this month. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter, continuing an impressive run of great control and command of his pitches. In his last 14 starts, Sabathia has walked only 11 and not more than one in any outing. He has 89 strikeouts over the same span.
Ryan Garko drove in two runs with a fourth-inning double off Chad Gaudin (6-3), and Travis Hafner homered for Cleveland, just 11-12 in June.
Rangers 8, Tigers 3
DETROIT (AP) - Marlon Byrd drove in three runs and the Texas Rangers ended Jeremy Bonderman's unbeaten streak at 17 starts.
Bonderman (8-1) allowed four runs - two earned - and seven hits in six innings. He struck out a season-high nine, but walked four, matching the total in his last five starts combined, and made a key third-inning error.
Bonderman's last loss came in Minnesota on Sept. 10. His unbeaten streak ended one short of Bobo Newsom's 67-year-old team record.
Kameron Loe (4-6) had his third straight strong outing since giving up nine runs in 2 2-3 innings against Detroit on June 7.
White Sox 5, Devil Rays 4
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Rookie Andy Gonzalez went 4-for-5 and drove in two runs to help the struggling White Sox snap a five-game losing streak.
Jim Thome, Paul Konerko and Josh Fields also drove in runs for the White Sox, who finished with 12 hits - two shy of their season high - after being limited to two runs and two extra-base hits while losing three straight to the crosstown Cubs over the weekend.
Left-hander John Danks (4-6) allowed four runs and four hits in five innings to win for the time in more than a month. Bobby Jenks earned his 19th save in 21 opportunities with a perfect ninth.
Casey Fossum (5-7) took the loss.
Blue Jays 8, Twins 5
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Matt Stairs hit Toronto's third homer of the game in the eighth inning, a two-run shot that broke a tie and lifted the Blue Jays over the Twins.
Roy Halladay (9-2) won his fifth straight decision and the Blue Jays got consecutive homers from Vernon Wells and Alex Rios in extending their winning streak to a season-high four games.
Matt Guerrier (1-3), who had not allowed a run in his previous 10 appearances, gave up three runs and four hits in 1 1-3 innings.
Royals 5, Angels 3
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - John Thomson won in his debut with the Kansas City Royals, outpitching Los Angeles' John Lackey.
Thomson (1-0) allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings. The 33-year-old right-hander spent the previous 2 1/2 months in the Toronto Blue Jays' minor league system before he was given his unconditional release last Wednesday.
Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Octavio Dotel got three outs for his seventh save in nine chances, after blowing his previous two opportunities.
Lackey (10-5) allowed five runs and seven hits in eight innings, striking out seven and walking one.
Mariners 9, Red Sox 4
SEATTLE (AP) - Jeff Weaver won his second straight start, pitching Seattle past Boston.
Jose Lopez capped a five-run fifth inning with a two-run single and Kenji Johjima and Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back home runs for Seattle.
Weaver (2-6) yelled at himself, the plate umpire and his fielders during his second straight win following an 0-6 start. In four starts since coming off the disabled list, Weaver has lowered his ERA from 14.32 to 7.71.
Seattle won for the fifth time in seven games on its season-high 12-game homestand despite Ichiro Suzuki, who went 0-for-4 with a walk to end his 19-game hitting streak.
Julian Tavarez (5-5) lost for the first time in eight starts.
