TORONTO — Ivan Nova snapped a five-start winless streak, Casey McGehee hit a three-run home run and the New York Yankees won their fourth straight game Saturday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2.


Derek Jeter had two hits, boosting his AL-leading total to 150 and joining Hank Aaron as the only players to record 17 straight seasons with at least 150 hits.


Rajai Davis had two hits and scored twice but it wasn't enough as slumping Toronto suffered its fifth consecutive defeat and its 11th loss in 13 games.


Nova came in 0-3 with an 8.36 ERA in five starts since winning at Boston on July 8, but was sharp against an injury-depleted Blue Jays lineup, setting down the first nine batters in order before Davis singled to open the fourth.


Indians 5, Red Sox 2

CLEVELAND — Brent Lillibridge homered, drove in two runs and scored on a squeeze bunt to back Zack McAllister's strong pitching as the Cleveland Indians beat the Boston Red Sox.


Lillibridge, acquired on July 24 from Boston, tied a career high with three hits. He hit his first homer in nearly a year and had an RBI single off Franklin Morales (3-2).


McAllister (5-4) allowed three hits, including a two-run double by Adrian Gonzalez, in a career-high eight innings.


Chris Perez pitched the ninth for his 31st save in 35 chances for Cleveland, 3-1 since an 11-game losing streak. Boston has lost eight of 11.


Rays 4, Twins 2

MINNEAPOLIS — B.J. Upton hit two home runs, Matt Joyce also homered, and David Price earned his 15th victory as the Tampa Bay Rays stretched their winning streak to five by beating the Minnesota Twins.


Ben Zobrist went 3-for-4 for the Rays, who have won 10 of 13 and kept pace in the AL East and AL wild card races. Tampa Bay is on its longest winning streak since a six-game run from April 29-May 4.


Price (15-4) held the Twins to two runs and seven hits in seven innings. He has worked at least seven innings in 10 consecutive starts.


Brian Dozier homered, and Justin Morneau had two hits for the Twins.
