BOSTON -- Pedro Ciriaco had four hits and four RBIs, fellow newcomer Mauro Gomez added three hits and the Boston Red Sox gained a split of their day-night doubleheader with a 9-5 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday.
Ciriaco drove in the runs with a pair of doubles one day after being called up from Pawtucket. Gomez is 8 for 17 in five games since being promoted from the Triple-A team Tuesday night.
Andruw Jones hit three homers in the doubleheader, including two of the Yankees' four in their 6-1 win in the opener in which Freddy Garcia (3-2) pitched 6 2-3 solid innings in muggy conditions. They added three homers in the nightcap, running their baseball-high total to 133. They're on a pace for a club-record 255. The 1997 Seattle Mariners hold the major league record with 264.
Boston's Franklin Morales (1-2) lasted just 3 1-3 innings in the opener, yielding six runs and six hits, including all four homers.
TIGERS 8, ROYALS 7
DETROIT -- Prince Fielder hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the first, Delmon Young had a two-run home run to pad the lead in the seventh inning and the Detroit Tigers held on to beat the Kansas City Royals.
Detroit closer Jose Valverde started the ninth with a four-run lead and almost lost it. Billy Butler hit a two-run single with the bases loaded to pull Kansas City within two runs. Yuniesky Betancourt nearly hit a go-ahead, three-run homer on a fly center fielder Austin Jackson tracked down near the wall in left-center.
Doug Fister (2-6) gave up four runs in six-plus innings and snapped a three-game losing streak. Bruce Chen (7-8) gave up six runs for the second straight game and allowed nine hits over 3 1-3 innings.
WHITE SOX 2, BLUE JAYS 0
Floyd (7-8) struck out three and walked two while improving to 3-1 with a 1.37 ERA in his last four starts. The 6-foot-6 right-hander received a standing ovation when he left in the eighth.
The White Sox have won five straight to move a season-high 10 games over .500. The AL Central leaders also have won a season-high seven straight at home.
Ricky Romero (8-4) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings for the Blue Jays, who have lost three straight.
INDIANS 7, RAYS 3
The Indians got three doubles in the second inning off rookie Matt Moore (5-6) as they jumped to a 3-0 lead.
Jimenez (8-7) allowed a two-run homer to Luke Scott in the fourth, but otherwise was in command. The right-hander gave up five hits and walked only one.
Cleveland's fourth win in five games kept the second-place Indians three games behind the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. The Rays have lost nine of 13.
RANGERS 4, TWINS 3, 10 INNINGS
Texas' Josh Hamilton had a home run, walk and a run scored as the designated hitter one night after leaving in the fifth inning with back spasms. Cruz finished 3 for 5 with two doubles and two RBIs, and Adrian Beltre hit a home run that tied the game in the sixth as the Rangers improved to 41-5 the past two years in games in which Beltre has homered.
Joe Nathan (1-2) pitched scoreless ninth and 10th innings for the Rangers, his longest outing in almost three years after ligament replacement surgery.
Kyle Waldrop (0-1) failed to get an out in the 10th and took the loss.
