BALTIMORE - Vernon Wells doubled in the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning and the New York Yankees hit four solo homers in a 6-4 victory over the Orioles on Monday night, extending Baltimore's losing streak to six games.
New York trailed 4-3 in the ninth before Travis Hafner homered with one out on a 3-1 pitch from Jim Johnson, who has blown three straight save opportunities after converting a franchise-record 35 in a row. All three of those botched saves have come during Baltimore's current skid.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto has been activated from the 15-day disabled list, and he is set to make his first start in more than a month on Monday night.
The Reds optioned infielder Neftali Soto to Triple-A Louisville on Monday so Cueto can face the New York Mets.
The right-handed Cueto strained a muscle in his upper back during a start April 13 after opening the season 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA. He will be making his fourth start of the year.
He was 19-9 with a 2.78 ERA for the Reds last year.
CHICAGO - The Boston Red Sox have activated relief pitcher Andrew Bailey from the 15-day disabled list before their game Monday against the Chicago White Sox.
Bailey had been out since April 29 with right biceps inflammation. He threw 17 pitches in a rehab assignment Saturday at Triple-A Pawtucket.
"Obviously, this is where you want to be," Bailey said. "Healthy, and with the team. Just looking forward to getting back out there."
PHILADELPHIA - Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz each homered off closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth innings Sunday, rallying the Philadelphia Phillies past the Cincinnati Reds for a stunning 3-2 victory.
Chapman (3-2) blew his second straight save opportunity after converting his first eight chances this season.
Antonio Bastardo (2-1) pitched a scoreless ninth inning for Philadelphia.
Jay Bruce homered and Homer Bailey tossed seven scoreless innings for the Reds.
ARLINGTON, Texas - David Murphy's three-run shot was barely enough against Miguel Cabrera's three home runs.
Murphy put Texas ahead for good with a drive just over the wall in right field in the sixth inning, and the Rangers spoiled the second three-homer game of Cabrera's career with an 11-8 victory on Sunday night.
"Very nice to be on the winning side," Murphy said. "Big game, fun game, national TV. We got to witness the best hitter in the game hit three homers."
ARLINGTON, Texas - David Murphy put Texas ahead with a three-run home run, and the Rangers spoiled a three-homer game from Miguel Cabrera with an 11-8 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.
Murphy's shot just over the fence in right field gave Texas an 8-7 lead and answered a bases-loaded double from Prince Fielder that put Detroit up by two in the sixth inning after the Rangers had walked Cabrera intentionally even though first base wasn't open.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sunday's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees has been postponed due to rain.
No makeup date was set for the AL East rivals, who are not scheduled to meet again in the Bronx until August.
Toronto manager John Gibbons said before the game that right-hander R.A. Dickey would pitch Monday at home against Tampa Bay if the game were rained out. Yankees left-hander C.C. Sabathia is likely to pitch on Monday as well. The Yankees had previously said that either Phil Hughes or rookie Vidal Nuno would go against Baltimore on Monday.
BALTIMORE - Matt Joyce hit a big two-run double in a six-run ninth-inning rally, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Saturday, ending Baltimore's franchise-record streak of 109 straight wins when leading after seven innings.
Joyce also homered and finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs.
It was the third straight road victory for the Rays, all of them come-from-behind wins.
Trailing 6-4, Kelly Johnson hit a one-out homer off Jim Johnson (1-4), whose club-record streak of 35 straight saves ended Tuesday.
SAN DIEGO - Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn was ejected from San Diego State's game Saturday for arguing with the umpires following the ejection of one of his players that was then overturned.
It was Gwynn's third ejection in 11 seasons as coach at his alma mater. The Aztecs lost 11-7 to New Mexico.
Plate umpire Dominic Giarratano called SDSU's John Spirk out and ejected him after he collided with New Mexico catcher Alex Real in the seventh inning, believing the SDSU player had thrown an elbow.
MIAMI - Brandon McCarthy pitched a three-hitter for his first win since being struck in the head by a line drive last season, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Miami Marlins 1-0 on Saturday night.
Gerardo Parra led off the game with a home run for Arizona, which has won four in a row. Miami has dropped a season-worst seven straight games.
