Tigers 10, Orioles 6
DETROIT (AP) _ Miguel Cabrera homered and singled to raise his average to .341 in his push for the AL batting title, then left because of lightheadedness.
Brad Penny (11-11) allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings for the win.
Brian Matusz (1-9) gave up six runs and seven hits in five innings. Assuming he doesn’t pitch again this year, Matusz will finish with a 10.69 ERA, a record high for a pitcher with at least 40 innings in a season, according to STATS.
Twins 6, Indians 4
CLEVELAND (AP) _ Rene Tosoni led off the 10th inning with a home run off Tony Sipp (6-3) to give Kyle Waldrop (1-0) his first career win. Chris Parmelee added an RBI single later in the inning.
Cleveland had a four-game winning streak snapped. The crowd got a surprise in the ninth when 41-year-old Jim Thome made what could be his last appearance at Progressive Field _ as a third baseman, a position he had not played since 1996.
Royals 2, White Sox 1
CHICAGO (AP) _ Luis Mendoza (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in 7 2-3 innings, Jarrod Dyson hit a two-run double and Kansas City sent Chicago to its 11th loss in 15 games, ensuring the third losing record for the White Sox in eight seasons under manager Ozzie Guillen.
