Youkilis lifts Red Sox past Rangers

Kevin Youkilis spoiled Cliff Lee's bid for his second straight complete game. Then he ruined the Texas Rangers' chance for their third consecutive win over the Boston Red Sox.

Youkilis doubled home the tying run in the ninth inning, then drove in the winner with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 11th as the Red Sox rallied for a 3-2 win last night.

Blue Jays 3, Orioles 2

Jose Bautista hit his major league-leading 25th homer in the eighth inning to lead visiting Toronto.

Indians 4, Tigers 3

Trevor Crowe singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the seventh as host Cleveland won the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Brewers 6, Braves 3

Corey Hart hit a three-run double in host Milwaukee's five-run seventh and Chris Narveson outpitched Tim Hudson. Prince Fielder hit his 21st homer in the Brewers' big seventh and was hit by a pitch in the eighth, leading to ejections for Braves reliever Jonny Venters and manager Bobby Cox. Cardinals 2, Dodgers 0

Adam Wainwright (14-5) pitched six sharp innings to improve to 10-0 at home and Skip Schumaker and Brendan Ryan each drove in a run for St. Louis.
