Recommended Posts


MINNEAPOLIS - Brad Radke (8-6) allowed one run and six hits seven innings to improve to 4-9 against New York, and Corey Koskie drove in three runs as Minnesota ended a 13-game regular-season losing streak against the Yankees that dated to 2001.


Koskie and Justin Morneau each homered for Minnesota. The Twins, whose AL Central lead had been cut to one game Saturday, boosted it to 3 1/2 games over second-place Cleveland.


Javier Vazquez (13-7) gave up nine hits, tying a season high, and six runs in 6 2-3 innings. He allowed two homers, raising his season total to 26, fourth in the AL, one behind teammate Esteban Loaiza.


Rangers 16, Indians 4


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mark Teixeira became the second player in Rangers history to hit for the cycle, the first since Oddibe McDowell on July 23, 1985, against the Indians at Arlington Stadium.


Teixeira went 4-for-5 and drove in a career-high seven runs as the Rangers stretched their winning streak to five games and remained tied with Boston for the wild-card lead. He hit a two-run double in the third, a three-run homer in the fourth, a two-run triple in the fifth and a leadoff single in the seventh.


Scott Erickson (1-2) won for the first time since Aug. 7, 2002, while with Baltimore. He allowed one run and three hits in six innings, and Doug Brocail finished for his first save since July 7, 1999, with Detroit.


Cliff Lee (10-5) allowed a career-high eight runs and seven hits in 3 1-3 innings. Texas is 7-1 against Cleveland this year.


Mariners 16, Royals 3


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Ichiro Suzuki went 4-for-4 and drove in a career-high five runs, leading off the game with a home run for the second straight day.


Bret Boone hit two home runs and four RBIs, and Raul Ibanez had a career-high five hits and scored four runs for Seattle, which set season highs for runs and hits (20).


Rookie Bobby Madritsch (3-0) allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, and became only the fourth Mariners pitcher to begin his career with three wins.


Darrell May (9-13) allowed nine runs and nine hits in two-plus innings.
