Giambi, Posada rally Yankees

Posted: Thursday, July 18, 2002

NEW YORK -- Jason Giambi and Jorge Posada singled in runs in the ninth inning as the New York Yankees rallied past the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Wednesday night.

Mark Redman (5-9) allowed only three hits entering the ninth but gave up a leadoff double to Alfonso Soriano and walked Derek Jeter on a 3-2 pitch.

Bernie Williams popped out to shallow center before Giambi drove in the tying run. After Raul Mondesi fouled out, Posada singled down the left-field line and Jeter jogged home without a play.

Blue Jays 7, Orioles 1

TORONTO -- Roy Halladay pitched eight effective innings and Ken Huckaby hit an inside-the-park home run as Toronto beat Baltimore.

Vernon Wells hit a three-run homer and tied a career-high with four RBIs for the Blue Jays, who have won five of six.

Royals 8, White Sox 6

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Brent Mayne went 4-for-4 with four RBIs, and Kansas City beat Chicago to stretch their winning streak to six.

Mayne, who beat Texas 5-4 Tuesday with an 11th-inning homer, had a two-run single in the second and RBI singles in the fourth and sixth inning. He tied his career high for hits.

Twins 8, Indians 5

CLEVELAND -- Torii Hunter fired his own fastball back at Cleveland's Danys Baez after being drilled by a pitch, and Rick Reed won for the first time in eight starts as Minnesota beat the Indians.

Hunter, angered at being hit in the left side, retaliated in the fifth inning by picking up the ball and hitting Baez -- about 40 feet away -- in the upper leg.

Red Sox 6, Devil Rays 1

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Derek Lowe pitched two-hit ball for eight innings and Manny Ramirez homered for the second straight game, leading Boston over Tampa Bay.

Lowe, who pitched a no-hitter against Tampa Bay at Fenway Park on April 27, retired nine in a row before Randy Winn doubled. Aubrey Huff doubled two outs later to drive in the only run off the All-Star right-hander.

Mariners 6, Rangers 3

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Bret Boone and Mike Cameron homered as Seattle beat Texas in Arlington for the eighth straight time.

The AL West-leading Mariners are a season-high 18 1/2 games ahead of the last-place Rangers.

Angels 10, Athletics 4

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Garret Anderson homered and doubled, and light-hitting Jorge Fabregas drove in the go-ahead run as Anaheim beat its AL West rival. Fabregas went 1-for-4 in injured Bengie Molina's place, but he got the game's key hit against Tim Hudson (7-8) in the sixth.
