 BOSTON (AP) -Manny Delcarmen struck out Sammy Sosa on a 96 mph, full-count fastball with the bases loaded on Friday night to preserve the win for Tim Wakefield and give the Boston Red Sox a 2-1 victory over the Texas Rangers.
Wakefield (8-8) gave up one run and seven hits, striking out four and walking four. Delcarmen relieved him with two on and two out in the seventh, then walked the bases full before fanning Sosa to end the threat.
Hideki Okajima pitched a perfect eighth before Jonathan Papelbon made things interesting in the ninth.
Papelbon allowed two baserunners before striking out Michael Young for his 19th save.
The Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to .500 for June, their worst month this season.
Lofton has stolen four or more bases in a game four times in his career. He has 619 stolen bases, passing George Davis for 16th on the career list.
Jamey Wright (1-2) left with nobody out in the sixth, allowing two runs and six hits, three walks and a hit batter while striking out three.
Yankees 2, Athletics 1
NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Mussina pitched seven sharp innings and New York beat Oakland for its first win in a week.
Alex Rodriguez had three hits as the Yankees opened a big 10-game homestand after a disastrous 1-7 road trip. New York has won nine of its last 10 games at Yankee Stadium.
Shannon Stewart went 3-for-3 and Eric Chavez doubled and scored for Oakland, which has lost seven of eight and 13 of 17.
Mussina (4-5) allowed one run and six hits to stop a personal two-game losing streak. He struck out three and walked one.
Joe Kennedy (2-6) allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked three, one intentionally in six innings. He's winless in four starts since beating Boston on June 6.
Indians 2, Devil Rays 1
CLEVELAND (AP) - Ben Francisco led off the bottom of the ninth inning with his first major league home run for Cleveland.
The homer off Shawn Camp (0-2) came on a 2-2 pitch and landed in the left-field bleachers. Francisco, who was making the first start of his career, also got his first major league hit, a fourth-inning single.
The Devil Rays have lost five straight and 12 of 16.
Tampa Bay's baserunning proved costly in the ninth. Ty Wigginton singled with one out off Joe Borowski (1-3). With two outs, pinch-runner Josh Wilson was picked off first by Borowski.
Edwin Jackson gave up one run and six hits in six innings for Tampa Bay. Jake Westbrook allowed one run and five hits in seven innings. He struck out seven, walked two and retired 16 of the last 17 hitters he faced.
Twins 11, Tigers 1
DETROIT (AP) - Joe Mauer hit his first career grand slam and Johan Santana scattered five hits over six innings for Minnesota.
The anticipated pitching duel between Santana and Justin Verlander never really materialized. Verlander gave up two runs in the first inning and Mauer broke the game open with his grand slam in the fifth.
Verlander (9-3) walked five batters, four of which scored, in five innings. He gave up four hits and struck out five.
