CHICAGO — Jake Peavy pitched a three-hitter in his home debut this season, outdueling Justin Masterson and making Adam Dunn's sacrifice fly in the first inning stand up in the Chicago White Sox's 1-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.
Peavy (1-0) struck out eight to cool off a Cleveland lineup that scored 31 runs in its three previous games. The 29-year old right-hander had his fifth career shutout and ninth complete game. He allowed only one runner past first base, did not walk a batter and threw 111 pitches.
Masterson (5-2) pitched his third career complete game. He allowed one run on five hits.
RAYS 6, BLUE JAYS 5: At Toronto, Matt Joyce homered, and Elliot Johnson had three RBIs to help Tampa Bay snap Toronto's winning streak at six games. Rays rookie right-hander Jeremy Hellickson (5-2) won his fourth straight start, allowing four runs, three earned, and five hits in 52/3 innings. The Blue Jays made five errors, one shy of the team record they committed on May 13, 1982, at Texas.
YANKEES 4, ORIOLES 1 (15 INNINGS): At Baltimore, Robinson Cano doubled in two runs in the 15th inning after Mariano Rivera blew a one-run lead in the ninth. After Mike Gonzalez gave up Cano's double, he struck Chris Dickerson in the head with a fastball. Gonzalez was immediately ejected, and Dickerson remained motionless on the ground for several minutes. After being helped to his feet, Dickerson walked to first base before leaving the game. Gonzalez then hit Dickerson. With Baltimore out of relief pitchers, Jeremy Guthrie — the scheduled starter for Thursday — came in and gave up a sacrifice fly to Brett Gardner.
RED SOX 1, TIGERS 0: At Boston, Jarrod Saltalamacchia doubled off the wall in left in the eighth inning, scoring Carl Crawford from first to send Boston to its fifth straight victory. Boston's Clay Buchholz and Detroit's Phil Coke each pitched seven shutout innings.
RANGERS 5, ROYALS 4 (11 INNINGS): At Kansas City, Mo., Adrian Beltre hit a two-run single off Jeremy Jeffress in the 11th inning, lifting Texas Rangers past rookie-laden Kansas City. Jeffress (1-1) walked the bases full with one out in the ninth, running Kansas City's walk total for the night to 13. Beltre, who also had an RBI fielder's choice in the third, delivered a solid single into center, allowing Endy Chavez to score easily and Ian Kinsler to score on a close play at the plate.Comment on this story
TWINS 4, ATHLETICS 3 (10 INNINGS): At Oakland, Calif., Trevor Plouffe hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning for his season-high third RBI, and Minnesota beat Oakland for its second straight victory following a nine-game losing streak. Pinch-hitter Delmon Young singled to open the inning and advanced to third when Daric Barton threw Alexi Casilla's bunt into the outfield. After Denard Span grounded out, Plouffe hit a flyball to right field off Brian Fuentes (1-4).
MARINERS 3, ANGELS 0: At Seattle, Seattle, Jason Vargas went seven innings and denied Jered Weaver another chance at becoming the first pitcher in the majors to reach seven wins.
