PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joba Chamberlain was dominant in his first major league win as a starter and the New York Yankees bounced back from one of their worst losses of the season, routing the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-0 Wednesday night.
Derek Jeter went 3-for-3 and scored three runs, Bobby Abreu had a three-run homer among his three hits and Robinson Cano added a solo shot as the Yankees got 16 hits to shake off a 12-5 loss Tuesday that prompted manager Joe Girardi to say they “stunk.”
Red Sox 5,
Diamondbacks 0
BOSTON (AP) — In a matchup for the aged, 41-year-old Tim Wakefield outpitched 44-year-old Randy Johnson and Boston beat Arizona.
And it was the youngest player in the Red Sox lineup, 24-year-old rookie Brandon Moss, who drove in the two runs Johnson (4-6) allowed in six innings. The Big Unit has lost his last five starts.
Not since Sept. 26, 1965, when 59-year-old Satchel Paige made a one-game comeback after a 12-year absence from the majors, had two pitchers of the combined age of Wakefield and Johnson started against each other in a Red Sox game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Rays 15, Marlins 3
MIAMI (AP) — Carl Crawford had two home runs and a career-high five RBIs, and the first nine Tampa Bay batters reached and scored in what became a 10-run fifth inning against Florida.
Evan Longoria had three hits, including his 13th homer, and drove in three runs for the Rays, who came within one run of matching the biggest inning in franchise history.
Cubs 7, Orioles 4
CHICAGO (AP) — Geovany Soto drove in three runs, Jim Edmonds homered and Chicago jumped on spot starter Matt Albers early and went on to beat Baltimore.
Jay Payton hit a pair of two-run homers off Cubs starter Ted Lilly (8-5) to lead the Orioles, who snapped Chicago’s 14-game home winning streak Tuesday night.
Giants 4, Indians 1
CLEVELAND (AP) — Barry Zito finally got an interleague win for San Francisco, pitching the Giants to a victory over Cleveland.
Zito (3-11) allowed one run and four hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out four without a walk in his best start of the season. He bounced back from one of the shortest outings of his career last Wednesday when he lasted only two innings in a 7-2 loss to Detroit.
The left-hander came in 0-6 with a 9.32 ERA in interleague play since signing a $126 million, seven-year deal with the Giants before the 2007 season. He had gone 0-8 since his previous interleague win, June 16, 2006, against the Los Angeles Dodgers when he was with Oakland.
Jose Castillo had three hits, including a homer, for the Giants, who improved to 4-10 in interleague action, the same record Cleveland has against NL clubs this season.
Nationals 5, Angels 4
WASHINGTON (AP) — Jesus Flores hit an RBI single off Scot Shields (3-2) with one out in the bottom of the ninth to give Washington a victory over Los Angeles.
The injury-riddled Nationals snapped a four-game skid and ended the Angels’ five-game winning streak. Washington had lost seven of eight overall.
Lastings Milledge hit a two-run homer for the Nationals, ending an 0-for-14 slide. Jon Rauch (4-1) threw 1 2-3 perfect innings for the win.
Mets 8, Mariners 2
NEW YORK (AP) — David Wright homered in his first two at-bats a night after getting his first day off this season, helping John Maine and the Mets rebound from two lackluster losses to lowly Seattle.
Jose Reyes added a three-run homer and Maine (8-5) didn’t allow a hit until Jeremy Reed singled leading off the fifth inning.
Rangers 3, Astros 2
HOUSTON (AP) — Max Ramirez got his first two major league hits and the second one, a two-run homer, sent Texas to a win over Roy Oswalt and Houston.
On the other side, it was a lost night for the Astros.
Reds 6, Blue Jays 5, 10 innings
TORONTO (AP) — Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 602nd homer in the first inning and Jay Bruce drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th to help Cincinnati beat Toronto.
Jared Burton (4-1) worked two scoreless innings for the win and Francisco Cordero earned his 15th save as the Reds won for the third time in 10 games.
Royals 4, Rockies 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Luke Hochevar pitched a career-high eight innings, Ross Gload drove in two runs and Kansas City beat Colorado for its fifth straight victory.
The last-place Royals swept the three-game series and improved the majors’ best interleague record to 12-3. Kansas City has won 10 of 11, all against National League teams.
Braves 4, Brewers 2
ATLANTA (AP) — Kelly Johnson drove in three runs to back Jorge Campillo, and the banged-up Braves rallied to beat Milwaukee and avoid a three-game sweep.
Ailing third baseman Chipper Jones (strained right quadriceps) and shortstop Yunel Escobar (jammed left shoulder) were not in Atlanta’s starting lineup. Escobar’s replacement, Omar Infante, left in the second inning after straining his right hamstring while running out a double.
