EDS: WILL be UPDATED.
By The Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) -Kason Gabbard allowed three hits in seven innings and Coco Crisp drove in five runs as the Boston Red Sox routed the Chicago White Sox for the second straight day, 11-2 on Saturday.
Both players stayed on a roll - Gabbard by allowing three or fewer hits in his fourth straight start and Crisp by matching his career high in RBIs one day after his three-run triple put Boston on top to stay in a 10-3 victory.
Saturday's outcome was in doubt until Boston put together its biggest inning of the season by scoring seven runs in the seventh, thanks to the wildness of Chicago's relievers and timely hitting. Crisp singled in two runs before Eric Hinske doubled in the last two. The first three runs of the inning scored on bases-loaded walks.
Until then, the pitching of Gabbard (4-0) had kept Boston in control. He struck out one, walked one and recorded 15 of his 21 outs on grounders.
Crisp went 3-for-4 to raise his batting average to .370 in his last 29 games and .271 for the season.
He tied the game in the second with a two-run single off another rookie lefty, John Danks (6-7). He also singled in the second run of the two-run sixth - after J.D. Drew's RBI double - against Danks, who was 3-0 in his previous four starts.
Yankees 7, Devil Rays 3, 1st Game
NEW YORK (AP) - Shelley Duncan's first major league homer capped New York's five-run sixth inning, and Hideki Matsui also connected in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.
Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking single and New York got a solid effort from shaky starter Kei Igawa. Andy Phillips added a two-run single.
B.J. Upton hit his third homer in two days and Ty Wigginton also went deep for Tampa Bay. All-Star left fielder Carl Crawford of the Devil Rays departed in the fifth with a sprained left ankle.
Luis Vizcaino (7-2), Kyle Farnsworth, Scott Proctor and Mariano Rivera each got three outs for the Yankees.
Jae Kuk Ryu (1-2) allowed five runs and four hits in 1 2-3 innings.
Blue Jays 1, Mariners 0
TORONTO (AP) - Josh Towers outpitched Jeff Weaver in a fast-paced game, and Aaron Hill hit an RBI single in the second inning for Toronto.
Three Blue Jays relievers combined for 2 1-3 perfect innings to complete the three-hitter. Jeremy Accardo earned his 15th save in 18 opportunities, ending a game that took only 2 hours, 6 minutes.
Weaver (2-8) was the hard-luck loser in this one, allowing four hits over seven innings. He walked none and struck out four. The Mariners lost for only the fourth time in 12 games.
Towers (5-6) gave up three hits, struck out four and walked two over 6 2-3 innings. Casey Janssen got two outs and left-hander Scott Downs retired all three batters he faced before Accardo recorded the final two outs.
