Angels sweep Detroit
AL ASSOCIATED PRESS
Mark Trumbo homered leading off the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, lifting the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over Detroit on Sunday for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.
Detroit lefty Phil Coke (0-2) intentionally walked Pujols with two outs and the bases empty in the 12th before striking out Josh Hamilton on three pitches. But Trumbo drove a 3-1 pitch into the top part of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his second homer of the season.
Jerome Williams (1-0) got the victory with three innings of two-hit relief.
Royals 4-5, Red Sox 2-4: Lorenzo Cain drew a walk with two outs and the bases loaded in the 10th inning to give Kansas City a 5-4 victory over Boston and complete a day-night doubleheader sweep.
Ervin Santana (2-1) pitched seven strong innings in the opener, when Kansas City won 4-2. Kelvin Herrera (2-2) got the win in the night game, a makeup of the one postponed on Friday night because of the city-wide lockdown during the hunt for the Boston Marathon bombers.
Alex Gordon had three hits in the second game, including a single with one out in the 10th. Alcides Escobar walked and, after Billy Butler struck out, Eric Hosmer reached on an infield single -- his fourth hit of the day.
Andrew Miller (0-1) walked Cain on four pitches to bring home Gordon for his third run of the game.
Rangers 11, Mariners 3: Nelson Cruz hit his fifth career grand slam, one of four home runs by Texas in a victory that completed a three-game sweep over Seattle.
Cruz went way deep, an estimated 431 feet to left-center field, to cap a five-run fifth that chased Aaron Harang (0-2).
Indians 5, Astros 4: Mark Reynolds' seventh homer of the season put Cleveland on top in the seventh inning and the Indians held on for a win over Houston.
The home run by Reynolds, who also homered in Cleveland's 19-6 win Saturday, was one of four solo shots for the Indians, who took two of three in the series.
Twins 5, White Sox 3: Josh Willingham atoned for an earlier misplay with a tiebreaking three-run double in Minnesota's four-run seventh inning, leading the Twins to a victory over slumping Chicago.
Aaron Hicks singled in a run and Justin Morneau had a bases-loaded walk as Minnesota swept a pair of weekend games against the White Sox to stretch its winning streak to four.
Rays 8, Athletics 1: Roberto Hernandez pitched six effective innings for his first win since he was known as Fausto Carmona, and Tampa Bay completed a three-game sweep of Oakland.
Hernandez (1-3) allowed one run, three hits, three walks and had seven strikeouts in his first win since Sept. 20, 2011, while with Cleveland.
Blue Jays 8, Yankees 4: J.P. Arencibia hit a two-run homer, Melky Cabrera had three hits and Toronto rallied for a victory over New York as Josh Johnson walked in the tying and go-ahead runs.
Brett Cecil (1-0) worked 1a-c innings for the win as the Blue Jays capped a seven-game homestand on a winning note.
