 DETROIT (AP) -Gary Sheffield hit one of Detroit's three homers off Daisuke Matsuzaka, and the Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-5 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Carlos Guillen and Marcus Thames also homered against the Japanese star, who gave up three homers for the first time in the major leagues. Sheffield added two doubles off the right-hander.
After trailing 6-2, the Red Sox scored twice in the seventh and once in the eighth to pull within a run. They put runners on first and third in the ninth against Todd Jones but J.D. Drew fouled out to end the game.
Detroit heads into the All-Star break after winning five straight and 14 of 19, moving a game ahead of Cleveland in the AL Central.
The Red Sox were a season-high 22 games over .500 on June 24 but have lost five of eight since. Boston, which still has a double-digit lead in the AL East, has lost six straight road games.
Matsuzaka (10-6) allowed six runs and 10 hits in five innings, which equaled his shortest start in his first major league season.
Nate Robertson (5-6) allowed four runs and four hits in 6 1-3 innings. Boston scored two runs in the third inning off him on three walks, a hit batter and a sacrifice fly.
Yankees 12, Angels 0
NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez, Hideki Matsui and Robinson Cano hit three-run homers and New York hammered its way into the All-Star break.
Rodriguez hit his major league-leading 30th homer and drove in four runs. Still recovering from a strained left hamstring, he'll sit out Monday's Home Run Derby in San Francisco but play in the All-Star game the next night.
Chien-Ming Wang (9-4) threw 6 1-3 scoreless innings for his sixth straight victory. Despite winning five of seven, the Yankees headed into the break under .500 for the first time since 1995.
The AL West-leading Angels matched their most-lopsided shutout loss in 20 years, and fell for the eighth time in 12 games.
Ervin Santana (5-10) gave up nine runs and sevens hits in three innings. He is 4-2 with a 3.42 ERA at Anaheim this season, and 1-8 with an 8.59 ERA elsewhere. He wound up with his fourth straight loss, matching a career worst.
White Sox 6, Twins 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Rob Mackowiak, Jim Thome and Paul Konerko homered during a five-run third inning Sunday to help Javier Vazquez win his third straight start for Chicago.
Vazquez (6-5) allowed eight hits over eight innings, including Justin Morneau's 24th homer, for his second straight complete game and 22nd in his career. He struck out eight - including the last two batters of the game - and walked none.
The disappointing White Sox finished 39-47 at the All-Star break. Minnesota, the defending AL Central champion, goes into the break 45-43 and in third place behind Detroit and Cleveland.
All three Chicago homers, including back-to-back shots by Thome and Konerko, came off Carlos Silva (6-10), who gave up 10 hits and six runs in five innings on a 90-degree day at U.S. Cellular Field.
Blue Jays 1, Indians 0
TORONTO (AP) - Alex Rios hit an RBI single in the ninth inning to lift Toronto over Cleveland.
Reed Johnson hit a one-out double in the ninth, chasing Cleveland starter Paul Byrd. Rafael Betancourt came on to face Rios, who lined a 1-1 pitch up the middle.
Byrd (7-4) allowed four hits, struck out two and walked none in his longest outing of the season.
Blue Jays starter Josh Towers retired the first 17 batters he faced before Josh Barfield singled to left in the sixth. Towers struck out four and walked none over eight-plus innings, his longest start of the season.
Jeremy Accardo (2-3) got two outs for the win.
