CHICAGO (AP) - Jose Abreu drove in four runs and set a major league rookie record for RBIs through the end of April and the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Sunday.

Abreu, who had a two-run home run in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh, has 31 RBIs. Albert Pujols had the previous RBI mark of 27 in 2001.

The homer was his major league-leading 10th and extended his own record for home runs by a rookie through April.

In his major league debut, Scott Carroll (1-0) gave up two runs, one earned, in 7 1-3 innings after he was called up from Triple-A Charlotte to fill in for injured ace Chris Sale.

Rays starter David Price (3-2) allowed eight runs, six earned, in six innings.

Trailing 1-0, the White Sox scored five runs in the sixth and four runs in the seventh.

The Rays committed four errors in the sixth. Gordon Beckham reached on an error and scored from second when Price threw away the ball after fielding Marcus Semien’s bunt single. Adam Eaton scored when right fielder Wil Myers fumbled the ball after Price’s throwing error.

YANKEES 3, ANGELS 2

NEW YORK (AP) - Mark Teixeira hit a tying homer and Jacoby Ellsbury scored the go-ahead run thanks to a passed ball and wild pitch in the eighth inning, sending New York past Los Angeles.

Masahiro Tanaka struck out a season-high 11, including Mike Trout twice, and overcame an early bout of wildness in a pitchers’ duel with Angels right-hander Garrett Richards. Neither starter received a decision, leaving both undefeated this year.

Adam Warren (1-1) struck out two in 1 2-3 scoreless innings. David Robertson worked the ninth for his fourth save and second in two days.

The Yankees took two of three in the series and have won 10 of 14 overall.

David Freese homered for the Angels, who went 4-5 on a tough road trip to Detroit, Washington and New York.

BLUE JAYS 7, RED SOX 1

TORONTO (AP) - Melky Cabrera, one of a record six players from the Dominican Republic in Toronto’s starting lineup, hit a go-ahead double and the Blue Jays ended a season-worst four-game losing streak.
