CLEVELAND - Alexi Ogando won his sixth game without a loss, Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz homered in a five-run seventh inning, and the Texas Rangers routed the Cleveland Indians, 11-2, Friday.

Ogando (6-0) held the Indians to one run and four hits in eight innings. He has allowed two runs or fewer in nine of his 11 starts while pitching at least six innings in each outing.

The victory continued the Rangers' dominance of the Indians over the last three seasons. Texas has beaten Cleveland 14 times in the last 17 games between the teams and has won nine of 10 games at Progressive Field. The Rangers have won nine of 12 overall and are 14-8 since May 10.

The Indians have the best record in the American League, but are 13-14 since May 3 and have lost four straight at home.

Texas took a 2-1 lead into the seventh before putting the game away with home runs off reliever Tony Sipp. Hamilton hit a three-run drive on an 0-2 pitch. After Adrian Beltre's fly ball fell between outfielders Michael Brantley and Shin-Soo Choo resulted in a double, Cruz homered on Sipp's next pitch.

Elvis Andrus, who had four hits, added a three-run double off Chad Durbin in the eighth. The Rangers had 19 hits, one short of their season high.

Justin Masterson (5-4) allowed four runs in 61/3 innings, dropping his fourth straight decision. He hasn't won since April 26.

Cleveland's best chance against Ogando came in the sixth when singles by Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera put runners at first and third to start the inning. Ogando then got Choo to hit into a double play, with Brantley scoring, and struck out Carlos Santana to end the inning.

Cabrera hit a solo home run in the ninth.

Endy Chavez, who was 4 for 4 on Thursday, had an RBI double in the second while Michael Young drove in a third-inning run with a fielder's choice.

Masterson retired the first batter in the seventh, but was removed after Ian Kinsler walked and Andrus singled. Sipp was called on to face Hamilton, who was batting .179 against left-handers, but that strategy failed. Hamilton's line drive cleared the wall in right near the Rangers' bullpen. Following Beltre's gift double, Cruz drove his home run deep into the seats in right-center.

Cleveland third baseman Jack Hannahan was a late scratch from the lineup because of a sore left hamstring. He was replaced by Adam Everett.

Blue Jays 8, Orioles 4

BALTIMORE - J.P. Arencibia hit his first career grand slam, Rajai Davis had three hits and Toronto topped Baltimore to end a two-game losing streak.

Carlos Villanueva (3-0) allowed two runs and six hits in 51/3 innings, walking one. He is 2-0 in three starts since moving into the Blue Jays rotation from the bullpen.

Arencibia's fifth-inning slam was his ninth homer of the season and gave the Jays a 7-0 lead against Orioles rookie Zach Britton, who has lost three straight decisions after starting the season 5-1.

Britton (5-4) allowed seven runs - five earned - and six hits over five innings, his shortest outing.

J.J. Hardy homered for the O's who have dropped six of seven games to fall five games below .500, matching a season high.

The game was the first meeting of the season between the AL East rivals.

Red Sox 8, Athletics 6

BOSTON - Carl Crawford blooped a go-ahead, two-run single to center in the seventh inning and Boston ended a four-game losing streak with a win over Oakland.

Boston rallied from a 4-0 deficit in the first and were trailing, 6-5, when lefty Brian Fuentes came in to face lefty Crawford, who came through with a broken-bat hit just beyond second base.

Joey Devine (0-1) loaded the bases in the seventh on a double by Adrian Gonzalez and then hit Kevin Youkilis and walked David Ortiz.

Bobby Jenks (2-2) got the win and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save in 12 opportunities.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia added a solo homer, his fifth of the year, for the Red Sox in the eighth.

Twins 5, Royals 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Carl Pavano earned his 100th career victory and Michael Cuddyer homered as Minnesota beat Kansas City.

Pavano (3-5), who was 0-3 with a 5.28 ERA in six May starts, won for the first time since April 24. He held the Royals to two runs and eight hits in his first complete game since Sept. 10, 2010, after throwing seven complete games last year. He threw 83 strikes in 112 pitches.

In his 13th season, Pavano is 100-94 in 270 games - 252 starts for five teams.

Cuddyer homered off Royals rookie lefthander Danny Duffy in the third. It was Cuddyer's 18th career home run against the Royals.

The Royals scored both of their runs in the fourth when they grouped four singles with Alex Gordon and Brayan Pena driving in the runs. Billy Butler had three of the Royals' nine hits.

Royals rookie first baseman Eric Hosmer had a ground-rule double in the third that bounced off the padding and a fan picked it up over the fence. The umpiring crew reviewed it and called it a double, not a home run.
