NEW YORK — Hanley Ramirez capped a six-hit day with a pair of RBI singles, Yasiel Puig homered to complete a dazzling debut in New York and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Yankees 6-0 Wednesday for a split of their day-night doubleheader.


The Dodgers salvaged manager Don Mattingly’s return to the Bronx after a 6-4 loss in the opener.


Chris Capuano (2-5) pitched three-hit ball for six innings in his comeback from the disabled list.


The Dodgers rebounded from a sloppy loss to former teammate Hiroki Kuroda (7-5) in a matchup between injury-ravaged teams with $200 million payrolls.


Orioles 13, Tigers


DETROIT — Chris Davis cleared the fences twice, giving him a major-league leading 26 homers, to help the Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 13-3 Wednesday.


Davis hit a two-run homer and Taylor Teagarden followed with a three-run home run in Baltimore’s six-run fourth. Against embattled reliever Jose Valverde, Davis hit another two-run shot for his second multihomer game of the season and the fifth of his career.


Indians 6, Royals 3


CLEVELAND - Justin Masterson managed to hang around for 6 1-3 innings and win for the sixth time at home, leading the Cleveland Indians to a victory over the Kansas City Royals.


Masterson (9-5) sidestepped some early trouble without giving up any runs and improved to 6-1 with a 2.29 ERA in nine starts at Progressive Field. The right-hander struck out eight while allowing two runs and nine hits.


Blue Jays 5, Rockies 2


TORONTO — Adam Lind hit a three-run home run, Mark Buehrle won his second straight start and the Toronto Blue Jays earned their eighth consecutive victory, beating the Colorado Rockies to complete a three-game sweep.


The eight-game streak is Toronto’s longest since a 10-game run in late 2008.


Carlos Gonzalez hit his NL-leading 21st home run, but the Rockies lost for the sixth time in eight games.


Rays 6, Red Sox 2


BOSTON — Desmond Jennings homered, Jeremy Hellickson pitched six strong innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended their drought at Fenway Park, beating the Red Sox.


The Rays had scored a total of five runs in losing their first five games this season at the ballpark, including a doubleheader sweep on Tuesday during which they managed a pair of runs on 10 combined hits.
