CHICAGO - Far from perfect this time, Armando Galarraga was long gone when Brennan Boesch and Carlos Guillen hit back-to-back homers in a six-run seventh to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

The centerpiece of a national story when a blown call against Cleveland last week spoiled a perfect game, Galarraga had a relatively uneventful night. He gave up a leadoff single to Juan Pierre in the first after being cheered on his way to the mound and allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings.

Mark Kotsay hit a two-run homer off him in the fourth, but the Tigers got an RBI single from Guillen against Gavin Floyd in the sixth to make it 2-1. Then they knocked around Matt Thornton and Scott Linebrink, and got the win after dropping two of three at Kansas City over the weekend.

The Tigers had runners on first and second with one out when Ryan Raburn drove a double to right off Thornton. Gordon Beckham took the cutoff from Carlos Quentin and threw wildly trying to get Raburn at second, allowing Johnny Damon to score the go-ahead run.

Thornton (2-3) intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera. Boesch then drove his sixth homer over the center-field wall after striking out in his first three at-bats, making it 6-2, and Guillen knocked his third out to right off Linebrink.

Red Sox 3, Indians 2

CLEVELAND - Tim Wakefield bounced back from two rough outings and became Boston's all-time leader in innings pitched, leading the Red Sox past Cleveland.

Wakefield (2-4) gave up four hits and one earned run over 71/3 innings to push his career innings pitched to 2,777, one more than Roger Clemens. The 43-year-old left after yielding a pinch-double to Travis Hafner, who had been 0 for 10 against the knuckleballer.

Rays 9, Blue Jays 0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Struggling slugger Carlos Pena homered twice and drove in five runs to back unbeaten Jeff Niemann's two-hit pitching and help Tampa Bay crush Toronto.

Pena ripped a solo shot and a grand slam, giving him three homers in his last two games as he tries to hit his way out of a season-long slump.

Niemann (6-0) didn't allow a runner past first base, limiting the Blue Jays to singles by Mike McCoy and Adam Lind en route to his third career shutout.

Toronto was hitless until McCoy's sharp grounder eluded third baseman Evan Longoria and shortstop Reid Brignac, who both dove but were unable to keep the baseball from reaching the outfield with one out in the sixth.

Lewis (5-4) had lost four of his previous five decisions before getting back on track against the Mariners, striking out five and walking three. He retired 10 of the last 12 batters he faced.

Vladimir Guerrero's 422-foot, two-run blast in the seventh was his team-high 13th homer, stretching Texas' lead to 7-1 and chasing Felix Hernandez (3-5).

Hernandez, who went 19-5 and was the AL Cy Young runner-up in 2009, had won four of his previous five decisions against Texas.

Twins 7, Royals 3

MINNEAPOLIS - Zack Greinke was hit hard again, and Kansas City couldn't recover from a first-inning deficit in the loss to Minnesota.

It was 13 up and 13 down for the Royals to start against the Twins' Kevin Slowey (7-3), who surrendered two sharp singles in the fifth before center fielder Denard Span finished the inning with a long sprint to catch Mitch Maier's drive at the wall to preserve a 5-0 lead.

Jason Kubel homered and hit a two-run double in the first inning to give the Twins a 3-0 lead, and Span added to it with a two-run single in the fourth.

Greinke (1-8) needed 102 pitches to get through five innings, with nine hits and six runs allowed.
