ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Moore pitched six solid innings to remain unbeaten and tie for the major league lead in wins, sending the surging Tampa Bay Rays to a 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
Moore (7-0) yielded a three-run homer to David Ortiz in the first, then limited the struggling Red Sox to one hit over the next five innings.
The Rays overcame the early deficit with a five-run fifth off John Lackey (1-4). Jose Molina and Matt Joyce each drove in two runs in the inning, helping Tampa Bay extend its winning streak to a season-high six games.
Boston has lost six of seven, including three straight.
Moore allowed three hits and struck out eight. The 23-year-old lefty matched Washington's Jordan Zimmerman for the major league lead in victories, became the first Tampa Bay starter to begin a season 7-0 and tied a club record by winning his eighth straight decision dating to September.
Fernando Rodney struck out the side in the ninth to finish the combined three-hitter and earn his seventh save.
YANKEES 4, MARINERS 3
Hernandez exited after six innings with a 3-1 lead, having outpitching CC Sabathia in the first matchup between the former Cy Young Award winners. Hernandez, however, tweaked his back in the sixth when he fielded a comebacker, pivoted and threw to second for a forceout.
The right-hander allowed one earned run in another strong outing at Yankee Stadium, and leads the AL with a 1.53 ERA. Sabathia, who had won his last eight starts against Seattle, struck out 10 in 6 1-3 innings while giving up 10 hits.
Down 3-1, the Yankees rallied for three runs in the seventh to win for the seventh time in eight games.
Charlie Furbush (0-2) gave up Cano's tying double off the base of the wall in right-center.
BLUE JAYS 10, GIANTS 6
Edwin Encarnacion drove in two runs and scored twice as the Blue Jays had a season-high 18 hits and won three straight games for the second time this season.
Dickey (3-5) struck out a season-high 10 in six innings, allowing two runs and six hits, to win for the first time since April 18 against the White Sox.
Cabrera went 4 for 5 with two RBIs. He reached on an error and hit an RBI single in Toronto's six-run first inning.
Before the game, Giants manager Bruce Bochy presented Cabrera with his 2012 World Series ring in a private ceremony in the weight room. The MVP of last year's All-Star game, Cabrera was suspended 50 games Aug. 15 for a positive testosterone test, and was later left off San Francisco's postseason roster. He signed a two-year, $16 million deal with Toronto in November.
Barry Zito (3-2) allowed eight runs, five earned, and a season-high 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings.
TIGERS 6, ASTROS 2
Dirks hit a grand slam in Monday's win over Houston, and a night later he capped a three-run fifth with a tiebreaking double. The Tigers added two more runs in the sixth, and Cabrera hit his eighth homer in the seventh, a solo shot that gave Detroit a 6-2 lead.
Fister (5-1) allowed two runs and five hits. He struck out seven without a walk.
Lucas Harrell (3-4) gave up five runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. The Astros have lost six straight and 16 of 19.
PADRES 3, ORIOLES 2
After the Orioles took a 2-1 lead in the eighth, Johnson (1-3) entered with a franchise-record streak of 35 straight converted saves. He immediately gave up two consecutive singles before getting Jedd Gyorko to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. But Denorfia followed with a single up the middle and, after Johnson hit Nick Hundley with a pitch, Cabrera singled to center for a 3-2 lead.
Ryan Flaherty homered for the Orioles, who fell to 18-2 when leading after eight.
WHITE SOX 4, TWINS 2
Kevin Correia (4-3) allowed four runs and nine hits in seven innings.
