BOSTON -- Pinch hitter Mike Carp's bloop single to left in the eighth inning dropped just beyond the glove of third baseman Manny Machado, scoring Jarrod Saltalamacchia from second base with the tiebreaking run and lifting the Red Sox to a 4-3 win over the Orioles Wednesday night.

Shane Victorino drove in a run for Boston with an RBI single after collecting a career-best seven RBIs and hitting two homers in a 13-2 win on Tuesday night. Craig Breslow (4-2) got two outs to earn the win and Koji Uehara got his 14th save with a perfect ninth for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won their fourth straight.

RAYS 4, ANGELS 1: In Florida, Chris Archer pitched seven strong innings and David DeJesus scored twice as Tampa Bay ended Los Angeles' four-game winning streak.

Archer breezed through the first six innings, scattering three singles and facing 20 batters, only two over the minimum. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth, striking out two for his 31st save.

JAYS 7, YANKS 2: In Toronto, Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run home run, and rookie Todd Redmond snapped a seven-start winless streak. The Blue Jays took two out of three from the Yankees after losing 12 of their first 13 meetings this season. They're 3-3 against New York at home and 0-10 on the road.

RANGERS 12, MARINERS 4: In Seattle, Leonys Martin homered and drove in a career-high four runs as Texas roughed up Felix Hernandez. The AL West-leading Rangers tagged Hernandez (12-8) for nine runs and 11 hits in three-plus innings. The former AL Cy Young winner's ERA climbed from 2.63 to 2.97.

A's 14, TIGERS 4: In Detroit, Brandon Moss homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs for Oakland. Moss has three home runs in his past two games for Oakland, which had a season-high 21 hits and has won the first three games of the four-game series by a combined 28-13.


DODGERS 4, CUBS 0: In Los Angeles, Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of three-hit ball, and Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier hit solo homers. The Dodgers earned their 21st victory in August, tying the Los Angeles record for most wins in a calendar month.

PIRATES 7, BREWERS 1: In Pittsburgh, Marlon Byrd celebrated his arrival in Pittsburgh with a three-run homer. Byrd, acquired along with catcher John Buck from the New York Mets on Tuesday, hit his 22nd homer of the season into the bushes in center field in the seventh inning as Pittsburgh ended a three-game losing streak.


BRAVES 3, INDIANS 2: In Atlanta, Chris Johnson singled to left with two outs in the ninth inning for his first career walk-off hit. The Braves improved to 46-18 at Turner Field, the best home record in the majors.
