CLEVELAND — CC Sabathia came off the disabled list and went into the eighth inning and Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer to help the New York Yankees snap a three-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-1 on Friday night.


Cleveland lost its ninth straight as ex-Indian Sabathia (13-3) worked 7 1-3 strong innings. The left-hander had a perfect game until Asdrubal Cabrera homered with one out in the fourth.


Derek Jeter was beaned by Indians starter Corey Kluber, but stayed in the game. Jeter had two hits and scored twice.



Angels 2, Tigers 1

DETROIT — Zack Greinke gave up one run and Howie Kendrick broke a scoreless tie with a two-run double in the sixth, lifting the Los Angeles Angels to a win over the Detroit Tigers.



Orioles 6, Blue Jays 4

BALTIMORE — Chris Davis hit three home runs in four at-bats and had four RBIs to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the skidding Toronto Blue Jays.


Davis hit solo shots off Carlos Villanueva (6-4) in the second and fourth innings, then greeted Steve Delabar in the sixth with an opposite-field, two-run drive to left field to put Baltimore up 5-1.



Red Sox 4, Royals 3

BOSTON — Pedro Ciriaco put Boston ahead with a two-run double in the seventh inning, Jon Lester had his third straight solid start and the Red Sox snapped a four-game losing streak with a win over the Kansas City Royals.


The victory capped a day in which the Red Sox and the Dodgers discussed a major trade that would send Adrian Gonzalez, Boston's best hitter, to Los Angeles.



Rangers 8, Twins 0

ARLINGTON, Texas — Matt Harrison took a no-hit bid into the seventh and went eight innings for his career-high 15th victory and Adrian Beltre hit for the cycle for the Texas Rangers in a win over the Minnesota Twins.


Harrison (15-7) didn't allow a hit until Trevor Plouffe lined a solid single to left with two outs in the seventh. That came right after left fielder David Murphy made a diving catch on Ryan Doumit's sinking liner to keep the no-hit bid intact, though Murphy had no chance to get to the next ball hit his way.




Athletics 5, Rays 4

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jonny Gomes' two-run home run in the eighth inning lifted the Oakland Athletics to a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
