Question of the Day
White Sox slugger Adam Dunn homered and Dayan Viciedo hit an RBI triple in the sixth to tie it at 3, but Escobar connected again against Peavy (7-6).
Greg Holland (3-2) won in relief. Jonathan Broxton rebounded from a blown save the previous night to retire the White Sox in order for his 22nd save of the season.
BLUE JAYS 11, INDIANS 9
TORONTO (AP) _ Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs, Yunel Escobar also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays used an eight-run third inning to beat Cleveland.
Encarnacion and Escobar both hit two-run shots in Toronto’s highest-scoring inning of the season. The Blue Jays had eight hits in the inning, six of them for extra bases.
Shelley Duncan, Michael Brantley and Casey Kotchman homered for the Indians.
The home runs were the 24th and 25th of the season for Encarnacion, who signed a three-year, $29 million contract over the All-Star break.
Aaron Laffey (1-1) worked five innings for the first victory. Casey Janssen got the final four outs for his 13th save in 14 chances.
Ubaldo Jimenez (8-8) matched a career high by allowing eight earned runs and was chased after just 2 1-3 innings.
YANKEES 5, ANGELS 3
NEW YORK (AP) _ Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson each hit two-run homers off Jerome Williams, leading the New York Yankees over the Angels.
Freddy Garcia (4-2) and three relievers kept Mark Trumbo in the ballpark, denying him a homer in a record sixth straight game against the Yankees.
Cano’s two-out drive in the first against Williams (6-6) hit off the top of the wall in left-center and bounced into the Angels’ bullpen and made it 2-all. Cano’s 21st homer gave him a 17-game hitting streak.
Granderson connected for his 24th home run with one out in the third.
Cody Eppley, David Robertson and Rafael Soriano combined for four innings of two-hit ball. Soriano worked a perfect ninth and notch his 22nd save in 23 chances.
