CHICAGO — Kevin Youkilis hit a grand slam, Paul Konerko homered and Dewayne Wise had four hits Tuesday night as the Chicago White Sox rallied for the second straight game to beat the New York Yankees 7-3.


Chicago, which fell behind 3-0 in Monday night's opener before winning 9-6, trailed 2-0 after one inning Tuesday in the matchup of division leaders.


Wise, designated for assignment by the Yankees in July, had four singles from the leadoff spot and has played well while filling in for the injured Alejandro De Aza.


It was Youkilis' second grand slam this season at U.S. Cellular Field. He also cleared the bases in April for Boston against the White Sox and Phil Humber.


Since joining the White Sox in a June trade with the Red Sox, Youkilis has hit 11 of his 15 homers.


Angels 5, Red Sox 3

BOSTON — Mark Trumbo hit his career-high 30th homer, Ervin Santana pitched 6 1/3 solid innings and the Los Angeles Angels snapped a four-game losing streak with a win over the Boston Red Sox.


Mike Trout had two hits, giving him 139 in the first 100 games of his rookie season, the most since 1964 when Tony Oliva had 144 for Minnesota.


Santana (7-10) allowed two runs on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks, leaving after throwing 100 pitches.


Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth for his 15th save in 16 opportunities.


Royals 1, Rays 0, 10 innings

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Eric Hosmer's two-out single in the 10th inning drove in the only run in Kansas City's victory over Tampa Bay in a classic pitchers' duel between the Royals' Luke Hochevar and the Rays' David Price.


The run off Joel Peralta (1-5) was unearned after an error on Tampa Bay shortstop Ben Zobrist. Jeff Francouer scored the run after his single preceding Zobrist's throwing error.


Kelvin Herrera (1-1) got the win and Greg Holland pitched the 10th inning for his sixth save.


Price and Hochevar both pitched eight innings, giving up a combined four hits.


Tigers 5, Blue Jays 3

DETROIT — Max Scherzer struck out eight in seven impressive innings, and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of Ricky Romero's wildness in a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.


Romero (8-11) lost his 10th straight decision, allowing five runs, seven hits and eight walks in 5 1-3 innings. He didn't strike out a batter.


Austin Jackson had three hits, and Scherzer (13-6) was sharp for the Tigers. Scherzer allowed five hits, including Edwin Encarnacion's solo homer. He walked two.


Detroit needed three relievers to get through the eighth, when the Blue Jays scored two runs. Jose Valverde then pitched the ninth for his 24th save in 28 chances.


Orioles 5, Rangers 3

ARLINGTON, Texas — Nate McLouth's two-run home run keyed Baltimore's four-run fifth inning and the Orioles held off the Texas Rangers 5-3 Tuesday night.


Chris Tillman (6-2) gave up three runs on six hits and struck out seven and walked one in 6 2-3 innings before giving way to the Orioles' bullpen.
