CHICAGO (AP) -- Far from perfect this time, Armando Galarraga was long gone when Brennan Boesch and Carlos Guillen hit back-to-back homers in a six-run seventh inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
The centerpiece of a national story when a blown call against Cleveland last week spoiled a perfect game, Galarraga had a relatively uneventful night.
Rays 9, Blue Jays 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Struggling slugger Carlos Pena homered twice and drove in five runs to back unbeaten Jeff Niemann's two-hit pitching as Tampa Bay beat Toronto.
Yankees 12, Orioles 7
BALTIMORE -- Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam, Nick Swisher homered and drove in five runs, and New York cruised past Baltimore.
Mark Teixeira also connected for the Yankees, who led 6-0 in the third inning and used a six-run seventh to make it 12-3. Teixeira, who came in batting .211, went 3 for 4 with two walks.
Red Sox 3, Indians 2
CLEVELAND -- Tim Wakefield bounced back from two rough outings and became Boston's career leader in innings pitched, leading the Red Sox over Cleveland.
Wakefield (2-4) gave up four hits and one earned run in 7 1-3 innings to reach 2,777 innings with Boston, one more than Roger Clemens worked in a Red Sox uniform.
Rangers 7, Mariners 1
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Colby Lewis allowed four hits over seven innings and Vladimir Guerrero homered to help Texas beat Felix Hernandez.
Lewis (5-4) had lost four of his previous five decisions before getting back on track against the Mariners. Elvis Andrus went 3 for 5 with two RBIs for the Rangers, who ended a two-game skid.
Mets 2, Padres 1
NEW YORK -- Ike Davis homered in the 11th inning and Mike Pelfrey turned in another terrific outing for New York, which won its ninth straight home game.
Davis started the 11th with a long drive into the second deck in right field off Edward Mujica (2-1) for his seventh homer. The rookie first baseman was mobbed by his teammates at home plate after New York's latest dramatic win at Citi Field.
Phillies 10, Marlins 8
PHILADELPHIA -- Ben Francisco hit a two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning to help Philadelphia rally.
Giants 3, Reds 0
CINCINNATI -- Matt Cain pitched a seven-hitter for his second shutout of the season and singled home a run in the eighth inning to lead San Francisco.
Cain (5-4) subdued the NL's most prolific offense -- Brandon Phillips had three of Cincinnati's hits -- while going the distance for the third time this season. He has all of the Giants'complete games.
Astros 4, Rockies 3
DENVER -- Carlos Lee had three hits, including a tie-breaking RBI single in the eighth inning, and Houston rallied from a three-run deficit.
Colorado starter Jeff Francis left after seven innings with a 3-2 lead but the Rockies'bullpen could not protect it.
Brewers 3, Cubs 2
MILWAUKEE -- Casey McGehee hit a two-run single with two outs in the ninth inning to rally Milwaukee.
Facing Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol with runners on second and third and the Brewers trailing by one, McGehee rolled a single up the middle to score Rickie Weeks and Prince Fielder.
