Seattle's stars slip past Rangers

Posted: Tuesday, July 03, 2001

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Al Martin's tiebreaking single in the 10th inning led Seattle over Texas in a game filled with All-Stars.

Six of the nine AL All-Star starters announced earlier in the day played in the game.

John Olerud, one of four All-Star starters from Seattle, led off the 10th with a double off reliever Mark Petkovsek (0-1). Bret Boone, another All-Star, reached on an infield single before Martin's RBI hit. Mark McLemore added a sacrifice fly.

Twins 7, White Sox 5

CHICAGO -- Corey Koskie homered twice and the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox for their ninth win in 10 games against the defending AL Central champions.

Jacque Jones also homered as the Twins offset three Chicago homers and moved 11 games ahead of the third-place White Sox.

Indians 2, Royals 1

CLEVELAND -- Einar Diaz hit an RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning to give John Rocker and the Cleveland Indians a victory over Kansas City, snapping the Royals' six-game winning streak.

Red Sox 16, Blue Jays 4

TORONTO -- Manny Ramirez hit his AL-leading 25th homer and drove in four runs during Boston's highest-scoring game of the season, leading the Red Sox over the Toronto Blue Jays 16-4 Monday.

Ramirez's three-run shot off Esteban Loaiza (5-9) keyed a five-run first inning. It was his fifth homer at SkyDome this season, tying the record for most homers by an opponent shared by Jose Canseco (1991) and Brady Anderson (1996).

Yankees 7, Devil Rays 1

NEW YORK -- Chuck Knoblauch broke an 0-for-16 slide with a three-run homer that capped a six-run seventh inning, and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for a four-game sweep.

Mike Mussina (9-7) won his fourth straight start and Luis Sojo snapped a 1-1 tie with a two-run single off Albie Lopez (3-11), who became the first AL pitcher to lose 10 consecutive decisions since Derek Lowe's 11-game slide from June 1997 to June 1998.

Athletics 1, Angels 0

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Miguel Tejada's two-out single in the 12th inning scored Jeremy Giambi with an unearned run Monday night as the Oakland Athletics outlasted the Anaheim Angels 1-0.
