NEW YORK - David Ortiz slugged a two-run homer, and Jonathan Papelbon labored through the ninth inning to earn his 200th save, leading the Boston Red Sox past the New York Yankees, 6-4, Tuesday night.

Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run, and Adrian Gonzalez ripped an RBI triple as the Red Sox roughed up Freddy Garcia (4-5) early to move within two percentage points of the first-place Yankees in the AL East.

New York first baseman Mark Teixeira left the game in pain after getting hit on the kneecap by a first-inning pitch from Jon Lester.

Derek Jeter had two hits to move within 12 of 3,000. He entered the 10-game homestand with 2,986 and said the most pressure he feels in his march toward the milestone is reaching the mark at Yankee Stadium.

Working on seven days' rest, Lester (8-2) gave up three runs and eight hits - seven singles - in six innings.

The Red Sox have been on a tear since arriving in the Bronx on May 13, starting a run in which they have won 17 of 23 with a three-game sweep of the Yankees. They have beaten New York in six of their seven meetings this year.

Papelbon, pitching while he appeals a three-game ban for making contact with an umpire Saturday, gave up an RBI single to Jorge Posada but struck out Alex Rodriguez with a runner on second for his 12th save. He reached 200 saves in 359 appearances, fewest in baseball history. Mariano Rivera is next at 382 games.

Indians 1, Twins 0

CLEVELAND - Carlos Carrasco took a shutout into the ninth inning and Cleveland pushed across an unearned run to defeat Minnesota.

Carrasco (5-3) is a former Phillies prospect who was sent to Cleveland as part of a package for Cliff Lee in the middle of the 2009 season. He gave up three hits, struck out six and walked one over 81/3 innings as Cleveland avoided its first eight-game losing streak ever at Progressive Field.

Chris Perez replaced Carrasco after Ben Revere slapped a one-out single through the hole at shortstop in the ninth. Revere took second on a weak groundout by Alexi Casilla before Perez got Michael Cuddyer on a called third strike for his 15th save in 16 chances.

Minnesota had a five-game winning streak snapped even though Francisco Liriano (3-6) came off the disabled list and matched Carrasco for five innings.

Orioles 4, Athletics 0

BALTIMORE - J.J. Hardy, Luke Scott, and Adam Jones hit solo homers, and Chris Jakubauskas pitched five shutout innings as Baltimore beat Oakland to stretch the Athletics' losing streak to a season-high eight games.

Jones had three hits for the Orioles, who will try to complete a three-game sweep Wednesday night. Baltimore had lost eight straight series to Oakland since July 2007.

Hardy and Scott connected against Guillermo Moscoso (2-2), and Jones made it 3-0 in the sixth with a drive off Michael Wuertz.

Jakubauskas (1-0) came into the game with a 6.39 ERA over five appearances, all in relief. He was pressed into duty because the Orioles are carrying only four starters and were playing for a fifth straight day.

It was Jakubauskas' first start since April 24, 2010, with Pittsburgh, when he was struck in the head by a liner off the bat of Lance Berkman.

White Sox 5, Mariners 1

CHICAGO - Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin homered, and Phil Humber held Seattle's offense in check as the Chicago beat the Mariners.

Konerko's solo shot in the second inning was his second in as many days and fourth in six games.

The homer was the 379th of his career, moving him into a tie for 61st all-time with Orlando Cepeda and Tony Perez.

The homer also marked the 1,000th run scored of his career.

Quentin's two-run shot in the third inning was his 15th of the season and second off Seattle starter Felix Hernandez this year.

Humber (5-3) worked 72/3 innings, yielding just one run on five hits. He struck out five and walked three. He also matched his career high with the innings pitched, a mark he's reached three times this season.

Hernandez (6-5) allowed five runs and eight hits over 62/3 innings.

Blue Jays 8, Royals 5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Adam Lind and J.P. Arencibia each hit a two-run homer to lead Toronto past Kansas City.

Lind homered off Vin Mazzaro in a three-run first inning. Jose Bautista was aboard on a single.

Yunel Escobar scored the first Blue Jays run with the help of two Kansas City errors. Escobar singled, stole second, moved to third on catcher Matt Treanor's throwing error, and came home on centerfielder Melky Cabrera's throwing error.

Arencibia hit his 10th homer, which ranks second among big league rookies, in the eighth with Lind aboard.

Lind also drove in a run in the fifth when his sacrifice fly scored Mike McCoy to hike the Blue Jays' advantage to 6-2. McCoy doubled home Jayson Nix with the first run of the inning.

Tigers 8, Rangers 1

ARLINGTON, Texas - Austin Jackson had three of Detroit's season-high 20 hits, and Rick Porcello won for the sixth time in his last seven outings to help the Tigers beat Texas.

Porcello (6-3) gave up a run over six innings against the AL West-leading Rangers as the Tigers improved to 8-1 in their last nine games. Porcello has allowed less than two runs in five of his last nine starts.

A night after getting 18 hits, Jackson helped Detroit win its fourth straight with three RBIs. The Tigers scored four runs in the fourth off Matt Harrison (5-5). Every Tiger in the lineup had at least one hit, including Casper Wells, Alex Avila, and Victor Martinez, who also had three hits apiece.
