 NEW YORK (AP) -Miguel Tejada hit a tiebreaking double off Mariano Rivera in the 10th inning and Aubrey Huff added a two-run homer to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the New York Yankees 6-3 on Wednesday.
Shelley Duncan's three-run homer with two outs in the ninth sent the game to extra innings, but the Orioles bounced back quickly against Rivera (3-4), who blew a save in New York's 7-6 win in the series opener Monday night.
Nick Markakis and Tejada doubled with nobody out, putting the Orioles up 4-3. Rivera got Kevin Millar to ground out, but Huff drove a 1-2 pitch into the bleachers in right-center for his second homer in two games.
Chad Bradford (2-5) worked 1 1-3 scoreless innings for the win.
Alex Rodriguez went 4-for-4 for the Yankees, who remained five games behind first-place Boston in the AL East.
New York was in danger of being shut out in consecutive games at home for the first time since 2000 when Duncan golfed a 1-0 pitch from Jamie Walker to left for his sixth homer of the season, tying it at 3. The rookie pumped his fist as he rounded first and the Yankee Stadium crowd roared.
Devil Rays 6, Red Sox 5
BOSTON (AP) - Al Reyes struck out Manny Ramirez with two on for the final out, helping starter Andy Sonnanstine end an eight-game losing streak.
Sonnanstine (2-8) won his second major league start on June 10 at Florida, 9-4. He hadn't won since, and in his previous two outings he was 0-2 with a 13.50 ERA - he failed to get out of the fifth both times. On Wednesday, he allowed three runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings.
Boston cut it to 6-5 on Julio Lugo's RBI double with none out in the ninth, but Reyes fanned Dustin Pedroia and came back from a 3-0 count to strike out Kevin Youkilis. After David Ortiz walked, the closer went right at Ramirez and struck him out swinging for his 18th save in 20 chances.
Carlos Pena drove in three runs and the Devil Rays scored five in the first three innings, matching their total for the previous 39 and snapping their three-game skid.
Boston again failed to provide much support for Daisuke Matsuzaka (13-9), who left trailing 6-0 after six.
Twins 6, Mariners 1
SEATTLE (AP) - Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and a grand slam in the ninth for the Twins.
Hunter's single off rookie Brandon Morrow also came with the bases loaded, after starting pitcher Jarrod Washburn (8-10) threw wide of first base for an error on Nick Punto's sacrifice. That put runners at second and third, and Joe Mauer was intentionally walked before Hunter lined Morrow's first pitch for his 80th RBI.
In the ninth, Seattle again walked Mauer intentionally with two outs to load the bases. Hunter then hit his ninth career slam, this one off Sean Green.
Pat Neshek (7-2) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. Minnesota ended its road trip 3-6 thanks to consecutive wins over the AL wild card leaders. The Mariners, who lost for the third time in nine games, stayed a percentage point ahead of the New York Yankees in that race.
Indians 5, Tigers 2
CLEVELAND (AP) - Fausto Carmona struck out a career-high 10 and finally got his 14th win as Cleveland regained a share of the AL Central lead with Detroit and split their two-game series.
Carmona (14-7) allowed one earned run and four hits in eight innings. He snapped a personal three-game losing streak, a skid during which the Indians scored just two runs.
Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run homer for Cleveland in the second off Jair Jurrjens (0-1), a 21-year-old right-hander who was called up from Double-A to make his major league debut. He allowed four runs and five hits in seven innings.
Cleveland closer Joe Borowski, who gave up four runs in the 10th inning of Monday's 6-2 loss, worked the ninth for his 33rd save.
All-Stars Ivan Rodriguez and Placido Polanco sat out with a flu bug that infested Detroit's clubhouse. Outfielder Craig Monroe and closer Todd Jones were also sick and didn't play.
Blue Jays 2, Angels 1
TORONTO (AP) - Shaun Marcum won his fifth straight start and Alex Rios had three hits for Toronto.
Marcum (10-4) retired the first eight batters before Reggie Willits singled in the third. He gave up one run and four hits, walked one and struck out six. Marcum left after walking pinch-hitter Erick Aybar to begin the eighth, the first hitter he walked in 29 innings.
Jeremy Accardo worked the ninth for his 23rd save.
Marcum has not lost since July 18, a 6-1 defeat at the New York Yankees.
Toronto won for the 11th time in 13 home games. The Angels have lost four of their past five road games and are 7-14 in their past 21 games away from home.
Dustin Moseley (4-2) lost for the first time as a starter. He allowed two runs and nine hits over five innings.
Toronto took a 2-0 lead in the fifth on a run-scoring single by Vernon Wells.
The Angels got their run in the sixth on a two-out RBI single by Vladimir Guerrero.
