BOSTON -- Shane Victorino's hard grounder eluded first baseman Josh Thole for an error as Jonathan Diaz raced home with the winning run in the ninth inning, and the Red Sox beat Toronto 5-4 Sunday.

Jose Bautista tied the game in the ninth against Koji Uehara (1-0) with a solo homer, his 19th of the season and third in two games.

Brandon Snyder singled with one out in the bottom half against Juan Perez (1-1), Jacoby Ellsbury walked and Casey Janssen relieved. Diaz ran for Snyder and Thole, who had entered in the third when Adam Lind left with back tightness, couldn't handle Victorino's shot.

Boston won for the fifth time in six games and improved to an AL-best 50-34. Toronto has lost five of seven following an 11-game winning streak that tied the club record.

RAYS 3, TIGERS 1: In Florida, Jeremy Hellickson earned his fifth June win in a game that included an early warning by the umpires.

Hellickson (7-3) allowed one run over six-plus innings. He tied the team record for victories in one month held by Matt Moore, David Price and Scott Kazmir.

Miguel Cabrera hit his 25th homer this season for the Tigers.

Both benches were warned by plate umpire Vic Carapazza after Detroit's Rick Porcello (4-6) hit Ben Zobrist with a pitch in the first. Both dugouts stayed calm and nothing further developed.

A day earlier, Cabrera yelled at the Tampa Bay dugout after he struck out in the 10th inning. Rodney had thrown a high-and-tight fastball before fanning the Tigers star.


GIANTS 5, ROCKIES 2: In Denver, Madison Bumgarner scattered four hits over seven innings, Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer and the San Francisco Giants ended their longest losing streak in three years with a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

San Francisco had lost six straight, its longest skid since dropping seven in a row from June 26-July 1, 2010. The World Series champions had dropped seven straight road games.

Bumgarner (8-5) struck out five and walked three, improving to 4-1 with a 2.18 ERA in his last five starts. Sergio Romo pitched a one-hit ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances.


A's 7, CARDS 5: In Oakland, Jed Lowrie hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the fourth inning, and Tommy Milone overcame a rocky start to win for the first time in nearly four weeks.

Josh Donaldson also homered and reached base four times for the A's, who padded their AL-best home record by taking two of three in this interleague series. Oakland has won 16 of its last 19 games at the Coliseum.

Milone gave up three home runs and pitched with runners in scoring position in four of the six innings he worked, but got the win after the A's rallied from deficits of 3-0 and 5-2.

Carlos Beltran, Allen Craig and Matt Carpenter all homered for the Cardinals.
