Danks pitches White Sox to DH split

In the opener, home runs by Alex Rios and Mike Moustakas lifted the Royals. It was the first homer since Opening Day for Rios, who missed about six weeks in April and May because of a broken left hand.

• LOS ANGELES 1, BOSTON 0: Mike Trout returned from his second consecutive All-Star MVP performance with a walk-off home run with two outs in the ninth, lifting the Angels over the Red Sox after they were no-hit through six innings by Wade Miley. Trout, who led off Tuesday's All-Star Game with a home run against major league ERA leader Zack Greinke, drove an 0-1 pitch from Red Sox closer Koji Uehara way over the fence in left-center for his American League-leading 27th homer.

• TORONTO 6, TAMPA BAY 2: Josh Donaldson's two-run homer and Justin Smoak's three-run shot lifted the host Blue Jays over the Rays. Both homers came in a five-run fifth. Donaldson went 1-for-2 with two walks and raised his RBI total to 62, tying him with New York's Mark Teixeira for the AL lead.

• NEW YORK 4, SEATTLE 3: Alex Rodriguez blasted a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning, and the host Yankees overcame two homers by Kyle Seager to beat the Mariners. It was Rodriguez's 19th homer of the season and 673rd of his career.
