Rays crush collapsing Orioles

• TAMPA BAY 11, BALTIMORE 2: J.P. Arencibia homered and drove in six runs to back an impressive pitching performance by Drew Smyly, and the Rays breezed past the free-falling Orioles Tuesday night in Baltimore. Brandon Guyer had four hits for the Rays, who scored four runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to send the Orioles to their 12th loss in 13 games. Tampa Bay has won three in a row to get back to .500 and stay in the hunt for the final AL wild card spot.

• TORONTO 5, CLEVELAND 3 (10): Ryan Goins hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Blue Jays snapped the Indians' winning streak at six games. Yan Gomes hit two home runs for Cleveland and Michael Brantley also connected but it wasn't enough for the Indians. Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion went 0-for-2 with a walk and a sacrifice fly, ending his career-high hitting streak at 26 games.

• DETROIT 6, KANSAS CITY 5: Justin Verlander threw his fifth consecutive quality start, and Ian Kinsler homered and drove in three runs as the Tigers beat the Royals in Kansas City.

• SEATTLE 7, HOUSTON 5: Logan Morrison's tiebreaking two-run pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning gave the visiting Mariners a win over the Astros.
