NEW YORK - J.P. Arencibia drilled a three-run double in a five-run sixth inning, and Jose Bautista homered to help spot starter Carlos Villanueva and the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Monday night.

Starting in place of injured Jesse Litsch, Villanueva (2-0) limited the Yankees to two hits and a run in five innings. With a looping curveball, he struck out the side to open his first start since Oct. 3, 2009, for Milwaukee.

Arencibia added an RBI single in the eighth, and Bautista didn't disappoint in his matchup with Curtis Granderson as the top two home run hitters in baseball. Bautista crushed a pitch from Bartolo Colon (2-3) in his first at-bat, sending a line drive over the 399-foot marker in left-center for his 19th of the season.

Bautista was intentionally walked and scored in the sixth and reached base three times in five appearances.

Granderson went 0 for 2 with three walks and two runs scored. New York failed to homer at Yankee Stadium for the sixth time in 28 games this season. Robinson Cano drove in three runs.

Colon gave up three hits in the first, matching his total from an eight-inning appearance against Baltimore on Wednesday. Colon then allowed nothing more than an infield single until Corey Patterson led off the sixth with a double. The burly right-hander struck out six of his eight batters in that stretch.

Intentional walks to Bautista and Juan Rivera around a sacrifice in the sixth appeared to take Colon out of his rhythm. He gave up an RBI single to Aaron Hill and walked Eric Thames on four pitches for another run before Arencibia, the Pacific Coast League MVP last year, cleared the bases with a double to make it 6-1.

Villanueva, who had a 1.48 ERA in 13 relief appearances coming in, breezed through the New York lineup the first time through, retiring eight of nine.

He walked Granderson leading off the fourth and paid for it. Mark Teixeira singled to right-center, advancing the runner to third base. After Alex Rodriguez struck out, Cano hit a sacrifice fly to tie it at 1.

Villanueva struck out five and walked one. He threw a season-high 75 pitches, six more than his next-best effort.

Rangers 4, White Sox 0

ARLINGTON, Texas - Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz both homered in their return to the lineup, and Alexi Ogando threw a five-hitter for his first career shutout as Texas beat Chicago.

Hamilton, the reigning AL MVP, got his first homer of the season when he pulled a liner over the right-field wall in the first off John Danks (0-7), who also threw a complete game. Hamilton added a double in the eighth.

Cruz hit his eighth homer, a two-run shot in the sixth.

Ogando (5-0) struck out six and walked three.

Danks struck out three and walked two in his third career complete game.

It was the fifth shutout for the Rangers this season, and the sixth time Chicago was held without a run.

Danks, who was drafted ninth overall by Texas in 2003 and traded to Chicago three years later, had his third career complete game, his first this season. The lefthander again got no run support, with the White Sox scoring only four runs for him in his five road starts this season.

Indians 3, Red Sox 2

CLEVELAND - Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out, RBI double in the eighth inning - the latest big hit delivered by Cleveland's shortstop - rallied the Indians past Boston, who also lost second baseman Dustin Pedroia with a leg injury.

Cabrera, who went 5 for 5 with two homers and five RBIs on Sunday, drove his double off reliever Daniel Bard (1-4) to the wall in left field, scoring Michael Brantley and helping the Indians win their fourth straight and improve to 19-4 at home.

Cabrera also homered in the fourth, his third homer in two days.

Joe Smith (2-1) got one out in the eighth, and closer Chris Perez got Carl Crawford to bounce into a game-ending double play for his 13th save.

Tigers 6, Rays 3

DETROIT - Victor Martinez rapped a two-run double and Jhonny Peralta had a two-run single in the eighth inning, lifting Detroit to a win over Tampa Bay.

Charlie Furbush (1-0) pitched 32/3 scoreless innings of relief in his major-league debut after Detroit starter Phil Coke was injured.

Former Rays reliever Joaquin Benoit worked a scoreless eighth. Jose Valverde gave up two runs in the ninth but avoided a total collapse by getting former Tiger Johnny Damon to line out to first baseman Miguel Cabrera to end the game.

Jeremy Hellickson (5-3) allowed two runs and four hits in 61/3 innings. He had a shot to be the first Tampa Bay rookie to win five straight starts, but his light-hitting teammates weren't much help.

Mariners 8, Twins 7

MINNEAPOLIS - Luis Rodriguez hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, and Seattle beat Jim Thome and Minnesota.

Carlos Peguero's single in the ninth scored Michael Saunders and tied the game, helping the Mariners overcome Thome's powerful return to the lineup.

In his first game off the disabled list, Thome homered twice - including a 465-foot shot that bounced high in the air after landing on the Target Field pavilion in the fourth inning.

He also hit a line drive that had just enough height to clear the wall in left field in the seventh.

The former Phillies slugger took a curtain call after his second homer, and the Twins held a 7-4 lead.
