Final Score: Toronto 5, New York 1

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Four hits from Chris Colabello helped Mark Buehrle end an 11-year winless drought against the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays to a 5-1 victory at Rogers Centre. Colabello finished 4- for-4 with an RBI and Russell Martin had three hits, including a solo homer, to enable the Blue Jays to take the rubber match of this three-game set. Ezequiel Carrera contributed a two-run single for Toronto. Buehrle (4-2) lasted only five innings but held the Yankees to a run on six hits to best his nemeses for the first time since April 10, 2004. That previous win was the veteran's lone one in 15 career decisions against New York prior to Wednesday. While Buehrle was able to stop his slide, CC Sabathia's personal winless stretch lingered on after the Yankee hurler was reached for four runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings. Sabathia (0-5) has now been dealt seven losses in nine starts since defeating Boston on April 24, 2014.

Final Score: Tampa Bay 5, Boston 3

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Evan Longoria hit a pair of solo homers and scored three runs in the Tampa Bay Rays' 5-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. Joey Butler drove in two runs for the Rays, who took two of three in the series. Alex Colome (2-0) allowed two runs on four hits with four strikeouts over five-plus innings. Mookie Betts hit a solo homer for the Red Sox, who went 3-6 on a nine-game homestand. Justin Masterson (2-1) gave up four runs on seven hits with six walks over 4 1/3 innings.

Final Score: Minnesota 13, Oakland 0

Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Eddie Rosario homered in his first MLB at-bat and the Minnesota Twins hit three in all in a 13-0 rout of the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday. Rosario, who was called up from Triple-A Rochester two days ago, homered on the first pitch he saw from A's left-hander Scott Kazmir in the third inning. He became the first Twins player to homer on his first big league pitch and just the 29th in Major League history to accomplish the feat. Rosario, who made the start in right field and hit eighth, also became the sixth Twins player to homer in the first at-bat of a career. The last to do so for Minnesota was Luke Hughes against the Tigers on April 28, 2010. Eduardo Escobar went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and five RBI for the Twins, who improved to 7-3 on their 11-game homestand. Kennys Vargas added a three-run homer. Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson (3-2) gave up four hits over six scoreless innings. Ryan Pressly allowed two hits in the seventh and J.R. Graham pitched the final two frames.

Final Score: Chicago 7, Detroit 6

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Melky Cabrera hit a game-tying three-run homer and Avisail Garcia added the go-ahead RBI single in a four-run eighth as Chicago rallied past Detroit, 7-6, in the middle test of a three-game series. Jose Abreu finished with two hits and scored two runs, Micah Johnson added three hits and crossed home twice and Conor Gillaspie posted a solo shot for the White Sox, who have taken the first two in the set after losing five straight. Zach Putnam (1-1) allowed a run in the eighth inning but earned the win, while David Robertson endured some trouble in the ninth but recorded his fifth save. Victor Martinez hit a two-run shot and drove in four for the Tigers, who have dropped four of their last six. Rajai Davis finished 2- for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI while Miguel Cabrera also knocked in a run. Joba Chamberlain (0-1) took the loss and a blown save, charged with four runs on six hits while recording two outs in the deciding frame.

Final Score: Texas 11, Houston 3

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Carlos Peguero belted a pair of homers and Colby Lewis continued his mastery of the Houston Astros in the Texas Rangers' 11-3 victory that finished off a three-game series sweep. Peguero finished 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored, but was far from the only Ranger with a big night offensively. Robinson Chirinos also knocked in three runs, Shin-Shoo Choo clubbed a two-run homer and Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in the lopsided win. Lewis (2-2) didn't need much help to improve to 6-1 lifetime against Houston, including 5-0 at Minute Maid Park. The right-hander yielded just a run on six hits while fanning six over a season-best eight innings. Houston entered this series on a 10-game winning streak, but failed to bounce back as the Rangers torched Samuel Deduno (0-1) for 10 runs and 11 hits over a 4 2/3-inning stint. Chris Carter had a two-run homer in the ninth inning for the Astros, with Jonathan Villar adding an RBI single in defeat.

Final Score: Cleveland 10, Kansas City 3

Kansas City, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - All nine Indians starters had at least one hit and seven drove in runs in Cleveland's 10-3 drubbing of the Kansas City Royals to even this three-game series at one game apiece. Brandon Moss homered, drove in three and scored twice to back Carlos Carrasco (4-2), who struck out six in seven innings of three-run ball. Mike Aviles had three hits while he and Carlos Santana also scored twice in Cleveland's most balanced performance of the season. Royals starter Danny Duffy had given up just six earned runs over his last four starts and Kansas City had won his last eight outings at home, but you wouldn't have known it watching the young lefty on Wednesday. Duffy (2-1) was pulled before recording an out in the second inning and was charged with four runs on six hits.

Final Score: NY Mets 5, Baltimore 1

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Jacob deGrom got himself back on track and continued the Mets' recent success against the Baltimore Orioles by leading New York to a 5-1 victory. Battered for 11 runs in losing his previous two starts, deGrom (3-3) struck out a season-high nine while yielding one run over seven sharp innings in the Mets' eighth consecutive win over Baltimore. Dilson Herrera backed the reigning National League Rookie of the Year's cause by going 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBI. Curtis Granderson also homered and knocked in two runs to help the Mets sweep the two-game series and win back-to-back tilts for the first time since they ripped off 11 in a row from April 12-23.

Final Score: LA Angels of Anaheim 4, Seattle 3

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Johnny Giavotella ripped an RBI double into right field in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Los Angeles Angels to their second straight walk-off win over the Seattle Mariners with a 4-3 decision on Wednesday. Seattle tied the game off Los Angeles closer Huston Street (2-0) in the ninth. Kyle Seager, who homered earlier in the game, legged out a double to start the rally, then moved over to third on Mike Zunino's bloop single into center. Following a a flyout from Logan Morrison into shallow left, pinch-hitter Dustin Ackley lifted a deep drive to the warning track in left that allowed Seager to cross home. Street walked Chris Taylor in the next at-bat, but struck out Brad Miller to end the inning. Carson Smith (0-2) stepped to the hill in the home ninth for the M's, and he immediately issued a leadoff walk to David Freese. Erick Aybar attempted to move pinch-runner Taylor Featherston over with a bunt, but Seager made the play at second to get the lead runner. The Angels then executed a textbook hit-and-run with Giavotella slicing a double into the right-field corner and Aybar raced around the bags to win it.
