SAN FRANCISCO -- Reliever Jean Machi and the San Francisco Giants took advantage of a huge baserunning blunder by Pittsburgh, tagging out two runners who wandered away on the same play and beating the Pirates 7-5 Wednesday to end a six-game losing streak.
San Francisco stopped a skid that matched its longest of the season, and avoided the club's first winless homestand of at least seven games in the 15-year history of AT&T Park.
The Pirates, who had won three in a row, led 5-4 in the sixth when Chris Stewart drew a one-out walk with runners on second and third.
Machi (6-0) got the ball back from the catcher and noticed Travis Snider had left second base, thinking it was a bases-loaded walk. Machi threw to shortstop Brandon Crawford to trap Snider in a rundown. Crawford tagged out Snider, then threw to Machi to catch Gaby Sanchez in a rundown when he broke home from third. Machi tossed back to third baseman Pablo Sandoval for the tag.
INDIANS 2, MARINERS 0
Kluber (11-6) gave three singles, struck out eight and walked none.
Hernandez gave up four hits in seven innings. He has allowed two runs or fewer and pitched at least seven innings in 14 consecutive starts, a major league record.
Kluber's performance came hours after the Indians traded opening-day starter Justin Masterson to St. Louis.
ROCKIES 6, CUBS 4
Colorado loaded the bases on two walks and Michael McKenry's third hit of the game before Barnes singled with one out against Wesley Wright (0-2). Drew Stubbs then scored on a wild pitch, helping the Rockies stop a three-game slide.
Scahill was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs before the game, bolstering Colorado's bullpen after it used eight relievers in Tuesday night's 16-inning loss.
BREWERS 5, RAYS 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Yovani Gallardo gave up four hits in seven innings, Martin Maldonado tied a career high with four RBIs and the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers avoided a three-game sweep by beating David Price and Tampa Bay
Gallardo (6-5) retired 13 in a row at one point.

ORIOLES 4, ANGELS 3
Garrett Richards (11-4) gave up four runs in seven innings.
ASTROS 8, ATHLETICS 1

BLUE JAYS 6, RED SOX 1

Buehrle (11-7) allowed one run on six hits to snap a six-game losing streak that matched the longest of his career.
Toronto has won eight of its last nine games.
Lester was originally scheduled to start for Boston, but the All-Star was scratched while his name is bandied about ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. As the Red Sox went down in the ninth, fans remaining from the sellout crowd chanted, "Jonny Lester!"
RANGERS 3, YANKEES 2
Brett Gardner led off the game with a homer for the second straight night, after homering twice in the series-opening loss for New York.
The Rangers had lost seven consecutive series since taking two of three against Minnesota from June 27-29.
Texas went ahead to stay with three runs in the first off Hiroki Kuroda (7-7).
Derek Jeter was 0 for 4 in his final game in Texas, where he was recognized in a pregame ceremony that included an on-field appearance by former President George W. Bush.
NATIONALS 4, MARLINS 3
MIAMI -- Tanner Roark won his fourth consecutive start and Washington averted a series sweep by snapping Miami's six-game winning streak.
