Larry Parrish's three-run homer keyed an eight-run sixth inning and Tom Paciorek went five for six as the Texas Rangers set team records for hits and runs in beating the Indians, 19-2, last night in Cleveland.
It was Cleveland's fourth straight loss.
The Rangers had 22 hits, two more than the previous team mark, en route to breaking their previous scoring record of 16 runs. Every Texas starter had at least one hit, led by Paciorek with five singles, and scored at least one run.
Charlie Hough (2-0) allowed four hits in six innings for his second consecutive victory since recovering from a broken finger suffered while shaking hands during spring training. Mickey Mahler pitched three scoreless innings in relief.
*Yankees 9, Twins 8: Rickey Henderson ended a 0-for-18 slump with a single, double and two-run homer as the visiting Yankees withstood Minnesota's six-run rally in the ninth.
Yankees starter Dennis Rasmussen (3-1) pitched an eight-hitter over 8 2/3 innings. Rasmussen gave up a run-scoring single to Tim Laudner in the ninth and was relieved by Mike Armstrong, who gave up a two-run single to Al Woods and a three-run homer to Kirby Puckett. It was Puckett's 12th homer of the season.
Dave Righetti got the final out for his ninth save.
The Yankees tied the game, 2-2, in the third on three walks and Don Mattingly's sacrifice fly off Minnesota starter Mark Portugal (0-3).
*Mariners 6, Brewers 0: Dave Henderson hit two homers and left-hander Matt Young allowed three hits in seven innings of relief as Seattle won at home. The Mariners have won three of four games since Dick Williams took over as manager of the club last Friday.
Young (3-2) came on to pitch in the third inning after starter Milt Wilcox pulled a muscle.
Seattle's Alvin Davis doubled to give him a career-high 12-game hitting streak. In his last 16 plate appearances with men on base, he is 10 for 12 with four walks.
