MLB Headline News

 BOSTON (AP) -Josh Beckett won his major league-leading 17th game and rookie Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits, helping the Boston Red Sox beat Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Ellsbury homered after Coco Crisp barely beat out the relay to stay out of a double play and avoid the third out in the fourth inning. Ellsbury, who also tripled and singled in the game, hit the next pitch from Halladay (14-7) into the Toronto bullpen to give the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.
Julio Lugo and Dustin Pedroia followed with back-to-back doubles to make it 4-0. Beckett (17-6) gave up a three-run homer to Matt Stairs in the fifth, but retired the last eight batters he faced before Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 33rd save.
Kevin Youkilis hit a solo homer in the eighth to make it 5-3.
Yankkes 12, Mariners 3
NEW YORK (AP) - Chien-Ming Wang smothered Seattle to get his 17th win, and Jorge Posada homered twice as the Yankees' slumbering offense woke up.
Alex Rodriguez and Bobby Abreu also homered, and Posada, Abreu and Robinson Cano had four hits each for New York, which boosted its AL wild-card lead to two games over the Mariners and 3 1/2 over Detroit. Abreu was in a 2-for-15 slump coming in and Cano was in a 2-for-16 slide.
Wang (17-6) allowed one run and five hits in 7 1-3 innings, tying Boston's Josh Beckett for the major league lead in wins.
Horacio Ramirez (8-5) took the loss.
White Sox 3, Tigers 1
DETROIT (AP) - Josh Fields and Alex Cintron homered, and Jon Garland scattered seven hits over seven innings as the White Sox beat the Tigers.
Garland (9-10) ran his career record to 13-6 against the Tigers, who began the day six games back of Cleveland in the AL Central and 2 1/2 games behind New York in the wild-card race. Garland allowed one run and struck out four without walking a batter.
Ehren Wasserman and Matt Thornton pitched a scoreless eighth, and Bobby Jenks worked the ninth for his 37th save in 42 chances.
Jeremy Bonderman (11-8) allowed three runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings.
Orioles 8, Devil Rays 4
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Melvin Mora drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and Ramon Hernandez followed with a three-run double as the Orioles beat the Devil Rays.
It was Baltimore's second win in 14 games, and the Orioles have been outscored 132-64 in that stretch.
With the score tied at 4, Dan Wheeler (0-3) took over for Devil Rays starter Scott Kazmir. Miguel Tejada greeted him with a single, and with one out, Nick Markakis singled. Mora followed with a single to left to make it 5-4. After a single by Huff, Scott Dohmann relieved and gave up the double to Hernandez.
Chad Bradford (3-6) pitched a scoreless seventh for the win.
