 WASHINGTON (AP) - Denard Span scored from second on third baseman Jordan Pacheco's throwing error in the ninth inning, and the Washington Nationals stretched their winning streak to 10 games with a 1-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Five of Washington's last six wins have come in its final at-bat, and the streak is tied for the franchise record. Kansas City is the only other team to win 10 consecutive games this year.
Rafael Soriano (4-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the Nationals, who swept three-game series against the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates before winning all four games of this series.
Oliver Perez (2-3) got the loss for the Diamondbacks.
RAYS 1, TIGERS 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - David Price allowed only a first-inning RBI triple to Brandon Guyer in his first start against his former team, and Alex Cobb and the Rays beat the Tigers to avoid a three-game sweep.
Ben Zobrist reached on a throwing error by shortstop Eugenio Suarez scored on Guyer's hit. Price then retired his final 23 batters, nine on strikeouts, to finish an eight-inning complete game.
Cobb (9-6) scattered two hits, walked two and struck out six over seven innings, improving to 7-0 in his last 10 starts. After Brad Boxberger worked out of an eighth-inning jam, Jake McGee got three outs for his 14th save and complete a four-hitter.
Price (12-9), traded to the Tigers as part of a three-team deal on July 31, got a standing ovation while taking his warmup throws before the bottom of the first.
YANKEES 3, ASTROS 0
NEW YORK (AP) - Brandon McCarthy pitched a four-hitter and the Yankees avoided a three-game sweep, beating the Houston Astros 3-0 Thursday.
New York won for just the third time in 10 games. Chase Headley hit an early two-run double and the Yankees backed McCarthy with flawless fielding.
McCarthy (5-2) outpitched Dallas Keuchel (10-9) as they both threw complete games without a walk.
McCarthy struck out eight in his fourth career shutout and first this season. He was 3-10 with Arizona before being traded to the Yankees in July.
Keuchel gave up seven hits and struck out five.
TWINS 4, INDIANS 1
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kennys Vargas homered and sparked rallies with two other hits, leading the Twins past Corey Kluber and the Indians.
Phil Hughes (14-8) struck out eight over seven innings to forge a four-way tie for the American League lead in victories, with Rick Porcello, Max Scherzer and Scott Kazmir.
Trevor Plouffe put the Twins back in front with a two-run double in the sixth.
Kluber (13-7) had his winning streak stopped at six, despite eight strikeouts over seven innings.
Rookie Zach Walters homered for the third straight game for the Indians.
