BOSTON (AP) Clay Buchholz pitched a four-hitter for his third career shutout - all against Baltimore - leading Boston Red Sox over the Orioles 7-0 Thursday night.
Buchholz (6-2) struck out six and walked one. His other complete games were a five-hitter in an 11-0 win on June 4, 2010, and a no-hitter on Sept. 1, 2007, his second big league start and appearance.
Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and two RBIs as Boston stopped a three-game losing streak. The Orioles had been 5-0 at Fenway Park this year.
Brian Matusz (5-6) allowed five runs - four earned - four hits and five walks in two-plus innings.
RAYS 7, YANKEES 3
NEW YORK (AP) - David Price struck out eight over five scrappy innings to become the AL leader in wins and Tampa Bay averted a three-game series sweep.
Price (8-3) finished his night by retiring two of the Yankees' most dangerous hitters with the bases loaded. Alex Rodriguez struck out after an 11-pitch at bat and Robinson Cano grounded out in six more, ending New York's best threat to cut into a four-run lead.
CC Sabathia (7-3) struck out 12 and matched a season high with 121 pitches for the Yankees, who lost for the fourth time in their last 14 games. Russell Martin homered in the ninth.
WHITE SOX 4, BLUE JAYS 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Orlando Hudson singled in the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the White Sox to the victory.
Dayan Viciedo sparked the winning rally with a one-out single against Francisco Cordero (1-3). He advanced on a wild pitch and scored on Hudson's hit.
Addison Reed earned his first major league win as Chicago avoided a sweep and improved to 15-4 in its last 19 games.
Alex Rios hit a two-run homer and finished with three RBIs for the White Sox.
TIGERS 7, INDIANS 5
DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera homered, Brennan Boesch broke out of a slump with a pair of hits and Casey Crosby earned his first major league win.
Cleveland nearly rallied from a 7-1 deficit but, with the Tigers leading by two, the Indians left the bases loaded in the seventh and two on in the eighth.
Detroit avoided a three-game sweep and beat the Indians for the first time in six meetings this year.
Crosby (1-1) allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings in his second career start. Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save.
Derek Lowe (7-4) allowed seven runs and nine hits in five innings.
ATHLETICS 7, RANGERS 1
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Coco Crisp hit a solo homer and bases-loaded triple to match his season total for extra-base hits and Oakland won a series for the first time since May 4-6 against Tampa Bay. The Athletics outscored the Rangers 24-8 in winning three of the four games.
Brandon McCarthy (5-3) allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to improve to 5-0 with a 2.31 ERA in his past six starts. Yu Darvish (7-4) gave up six runs, six hits and six walks in 5 1-3 innings as Texas lost for the seventh time in nine games.
