NEW YORK - David Ortiz hit one of three Boston homers to back a tireless Tim Wakefield and the Red Sox extended their domination of the Yankees this season, beating New York, 11-6, on Wednesday night to take over first place in the AL East.

Carl Crawford and J.D. Drew also connected, both in the ninth inning to break the game open for a second time. Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and Adrian Gonzalez added two RBIs.

Facing his most familiar foe in Wakefield, Derek Jeter finished 1 for 5 to move within 11 hits of 3,000. He had a run-scoring double but also grounded into a rally-killing double play.

Alex Rodriguez homered but A.J. Burnett came up small in a big game for the banged-up Yankees, who have lost seven of eight meetings with their longtime rivals this season - including all five at home.

The last time the Red Sox won their first five road games against the Yankees in a season was 1912, on the way to a World Series title.

Boston goes for its second sweep at Yankee Stadium in a month Thursday night when Red Sox righthander Josh Beckett faces fellow ace CC Sabathia in their latest marquee matchup. Beckett has beaten Sabathia and the Yankees twice in two spotless starts this season, striking out 19 over 14 shutout innings.

The Red Sox have won five straight overall after losing four in a row. Boston has won 18 of 24, starting the surge with a three-game sweep in the Bronx May 13-15.

Wakefield (3-1) was relieved in the sixth by ex-Yankee Alfredo Aceves, who went the rest of the way for his first save of the season.

Jeter was 1 for 3 against Wakefield, giving him 32 career hits against the 44-year-old knuckleballer, his most against any pitcher. The two have squared off in 118 plate appearances, the most common matchup among active players in majors.

New York tried to rally in the sixth, which included a strange swing. Eduardo Nunez fouled a pitch off the front of his helmet, jarring it loose, and straight up in the air. It was a dead ball, but Nunez was shaken up for a moment.

He stayed in the game and singled before fill-in catcher Francisco Cervelli cut it to 8-5 with an RBI single, making him 9 for 16 (.563) in his career with the bases loaded. But with sweat dripping from the bill of his cap, Aceves got Jeter to ground into an inning-ending double play.

Orioles 3, Athletics 2

BALTIMORE - Rookie Zach Britton took a four-hitter into the seventh inning and Mark Reynolds homered as Baltimore beat a skidding Oakland team to complete a three-game sweep.

It was the ninth consecutive loss for the Athletics, their longest skid since a 10-game run in 2008. Oakland scored only four runs in the series and never held a lead.

J.J. Hardy drove in a run for the Orioles, who have won four of five. It was their first three-game sweep of the A's in Baltimore since July 21-23, 1998.

Britton (6-4) allowed four hits and two walks in 61/3 innings. The lefthander, who tied his career high with six strikeouts, was 0-3 in six starts since May 1.

Jim Johnson gave up an unearned run in 12/3 innings, and Kevin Gregg worked a perfect ninth for his 12th save.

Twins 3, Indians 2

CLEVELAND - Cleveland lost for the sixth time in seven games as Ben Revere's two-out RBI single in the 10th inning off closer Chris Perez gave coming-to-life Minnesota a dramatic win.

The Indians, who were once 14-2 at Progressive Field, went 1-6 on their homestand, losing four straight to Texas and two of three to Minnesota, which has the majors' worst record.

"Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong," said Indians manager Manny Acta .

After Drew Butera doubled with two outs off Perez (2-2), Revere flared his base hit into shallow left. Butera scored sliding ahead of outfielder Michael Brantley's one-hop throw that skipped past catcher Lou Marson, helping the last-place Twins take the series and win for the sixth time in seven games.

Matt Capps (2-3) got the win.

Rangers 7, Tigers 3

ARLINGTON, Texas - Alexi Ogando scattered six hits over 72/3 innings to remain unbeaten, Adrian Beltre homered, and Texas avoided a three-game sweep by Detroit.

Detroit had 21 runs and 38 hits while winning the first two games of the series and had taken four straight overall. But the Tigers couldn't get much going against Ogando (7-0), who struck out seven to match a career high and walked two.

Ogando became the first major-league pitcher to win his first seven decisions as a starter since Jered Weaver went 9-0 for the Los Angeles Angels in 2006.

Elvis Andrus had three hits for the AL West-leading Rangers.

Detroit's Don Kelly hit a first-inning solo homer, his first of the season.

Blue Jays 9, Royals 8

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Adam Lind hit a grand slam and Jayson Nix added a three-run homer to power Toronto over Kansas City.

Corey Patterson snapped an 0-for-11 skid with four hits and scored two Toronto runs.

Blue Jays starter Carlos Villanueva (4-0) had one rough inning, the fourth, when he allowed four runs, but pitched seven innings, allowing six hits. He has won eight decisions since his last loss, Aug. 17, 2009, at Pittsburgh.

Villanueva, who has held opponents to a .156 batting average on the road, gave up a three-run homer to Melky Cabrera in the third. Alex Gordon's sacrifice fly drove in the first Kansas City run.

Rookie lefthander Danny Duffy (0-2) was pulled after four innings and 96 pitches, allowing five runs on eight hits and four walks.

Mariners 7, White Sox 4

CHICAGO - Miguel Olivo drove in three runs, including a go-ahead two-run double in the 10th inning in Seattle's win over Chicago.

Justin Smoak started the winning rally with a leadoff bloop double off White Sox closer Sergio Santos (2-2). Adam Kennedy drew a walk, then Olivo - who had a solo homer in the eighth against his former team - drove in both runners with a grounder just inside of third base and into the left-field corner.

White Sox rightfielder Carlos Quentin homered twice.

Aaron Laffey (1-1) threw a scoreless inning to earn the win and Brandon League pitched a perfect 10th for his AL-leading 17th save of the season.
