CHICAGO - Jacoby Ellsbury homered with two outs in the 10th inning, and the New York Yankees snapped an eight-game road losing streak against the Chicago White Sox with a 4-3 victory on Saturday.

The Yankees scored three times in the ninth against Ronald Belisario and then grabbed their first lead of the day when Ellsbury hit a drive to right off Zach Putnam (2-1) for his second homer.

Dellin Betances (3-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win and David Robertson finished for his 10th save in 11 chances, bouncing back nicely after yielding Adam Dunn's game-ending homer in Chicago's 6-5 victory on Friday night.

BLUE JAYS 5, ATHLETICS 2

TORONTO (AP) — R.A. Dickey won for the third time in four starts, Brett Lawrie homered and the Blue Jays beat the Athletics.

The AL East-leading Blue Jays (28-22), who won for the 10th time in 12 games, haven't been atop the division this late into the season since July 6, 2000, when they were 46-40.

Dickey (5-4) allowed one run and five hits in a season-high 8 1-3 innings. He walked one and struck out four.

Jesse Chavez (4-2) allowed four runs, two earned, and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings, the second straight start he has failed to reach six innings.

ROYALS 7, ANGELS 4, 13 INNINGS

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Eric Hosmer tied a season high with four hits, pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson scored the go-ahead run in the 13th inning on a throwing error by rookie reliever Mike Morin, and Kansas City won a 4-hour, 53-minute marathon.

Danny Valencia led off the 13th inning with a double off the fence in left-centre. Dyson went into run for him and scored when Morin (0-1) fielded Alcides Escobar's sacrifice bunt and threw the ball past first base as Dyson came home. Nori Aoki hit an RBI single and Billy Butler capped the scoring with his second sacrifice fly.

Aaron Crow (2-1) pitched two innings for the victory and Greg Holland got three outs for the save.

INDIANS 9, ORIOLES 0

BALTIMORE (AP) — Corey Kluber struck out nine in seven innings, and the Indians beat former teammate Ubaldo Jimenez and the Orioles for their fifth win in six games.

Carlos Santana homered and walked three times for the Indians, who took control with a five-run fifth and pulled away by scoring four in the seventh.

Kluber (5-3) became the first pitcher in the majors this season to have five straight outings with at least eight strikeouts. He gave up five hits, walked two and did not allow a runner past second base.

Jimenez (2-6) tied two undesirable season highs, giving up five runs and walking five, in four-plus innings.

ASTROS 9, MARINERS 4

SEATTLE (AP) — George Springer hit a pair of two-run homers and Brett Oberholtzer scattered six hits over six innings for Houston.

Springer, the Astros' rookie right fielder who missed the first two games of the series with a sore hip flexor, homered in the first and in the Astros' five-run fifth. He added an RBI in the sixth for a career-high five in his 33rd big league game.

Oberholtzer (1-6), recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game, allowed two runs in the first, and then settled in. He finished with three runs allowed — two earned — with one walk and a career-high eight strikeouts.

Brandon Maurer (1-3) went 4 1-3 innings for the Mariners, allowing six runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out two.

RANGERS 12, TIGERS 2

DETROIT (AP) — Nick Martinez pitched six sharp innings for his first major league win and fellow rookie Rougned Odor drove in five runs with a pair of triples to lead the Rangers to a rout of Detroit.

Martinez (1-1) allowed a run and eight hits, and Adrian Beltre and Donnie Murphy homered for Texas. The Rangers scored four runs in the fourth, plus three each in the sixth and seventh.

Rick Porcello (7-2) had won his last six starts before being knocked around by Texas. He allowed eight runs and 12 hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Detroit has lost five of six.

RAYS 6, RED SOX 5, 15 INNINGS

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Andrew Miller threw a force attempt at second base into centre field, allowing pinch-runner Cole Figueroa to score in the bottom of the 15th inning as the Rays handed the Red Sox their ninth consecutive loss.

Boston scored five runs in the first inning but still lost its ninth in a row for the first time since Aug. 25-Sept. 4, 2001.

James Loney opened the 15th with a single off Miller (1-4). Figueroa ran for Loney and went to second on Brandon Guyer's bunt single. He scored when Miller threw the ball into centre field while attempting to get a double play on Desmond Jennings' grounder.

Cesar Ramos (2-3) allowed an infield single and two walks in three scoreless innings for the win.
