Posted: Friday, June 28, 2002

MINNEAPOLIS -- Ray Durham hit a three-run homer, Paul Konerko went 4-for-5 with a home run and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 7-4 Thursday and gain a split of the four-game series.

Torii Hunter had two hits and drove in a run Minnesota, which leads Chicago in the AL Central by six games. They play 15 more times this year.

Royals 5, Tigers 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Mike Sweeney homered for the third day in a row, leading Paul Byrd and the Kansas City Royals over the Detroit Tigers for a three-game sweep.

Sweeney, who took over the AL batting lead from Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki by going 3-for-4 Wednesday night, walked twice and wound up 1-for-2, raising his average to .365.

Devil Rays 6, Blue Jays 4

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Steve Cox hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the seventh inning and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays.

Aubrey Huff homered for the second straight day as the Devil Rays won consecutive games for just the second time since a season-high four-game winning streak from May 18-22.

Yankees 3, Orioles 2

BALTIMORE -- Jason Giambi homered twice and drove in three runs as the New York Yankees averted a sweep by snapping the Baltimiore Orioles' four-game winning streak.

David Wells (8-5) allowed six hits over 6 2-3 innings for the Yankees, who lost the first two games of the series. Wells, 1-4 in his previous five starts, gave up two runs -- one earned -- struck out five and walked one.

Mariano Rivera worked a perfect ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances and first since coming off the disabled list Tuesday. Rivera has converted 14 consecutive save opportunities since April 23 without allowing a run.

Angels 6, Rangers 3

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jarrod Washburn won his eighth decision in a row as the Anaheim Angels beat the Texas Rangers.

Washburn (8-2) hasn't lost since April 13 against Oakland in his third start of the season. The left-hander has a 3.02 ERA in his 13-game unbeaten streak.

He gave up one run over six innings, allowing just four hits.

Tim Salmon hit a two-run single in the fifth off Rob Bell (3-3) to break a 1-1 tie and put Anaheim ahead to stay.

Yankees 3, Orioles 2

BALTIMORE -- Jason Giambi homered twice and drove in three runs as the New York Yankees averted a sweep by snapping the Baltimiore Orioles' four-game winning streak.

David Wells (8-5) allowed six hits over 6 2-3 innings for the Yankees, who lost the first two games of the series. Wells, 1-4 in his previous five starts, gave up two runs -- one earned -- struck out five and walked one.

Mariners 7, Athletics 4

SEATTLE -- Edgar Martinez, back in Seattle's starting lineup for the first time since April 11, homered and drove in three runs to lead the Mariners over Oakland.

The popular designated hitter got a standing ovation from the crowd of 42,159 in the first inning and hit his first home run of the season off Barry Zito in the third.

Martinez added a two-run single in his first start since rupturing a tendon behind his left knee in Seattle's 10th game of the year.

Beating the A's for the third night in a row, the Mariners ended Zito's personal nine-game winning streak and handed him his first loss since April 30. Zito (10-3) was roughed up for seven runs on nine hits and two walks in three-plus innings.

John Halama (3-2) earned the victory with 4 2-3 scoreless innings of relief. Arthur Rhodes pitched a perfect ninth for his first save.
