The Blue Jays lost the game and one of their best players.
On a night when Shawn Green broke his wrist, Derek Jeter hit three doubles and Scott Brosius drove in three runs as New York beat host Toronto, 10-6, for its third straight win.
Green's left wrist was broken when he was hit by a pitch from Andy Pettitte (3-2) in the fourth inning. Green left the game for a pinch hitter in the fifth. The Blue Jays said Green's status is day-to-day.
"They said it was a real clean break," Green said. "I'm hoping it will be like a real bad bruise in terms of recovery time."
Green, who had played every inning this season, began the day hitting .327 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI.
Jeter, who drove in two runs, has reached base safely in all 46 games this season. He became the first Yankees player to hit three doubles in a game since Bernie Williams did it against the Angels on Aug. 19, 1995. Yet Jeter said he's not swinging the bat well.
"There are some balls that I should be driving to left-center but I'm not," Jeter said. "I'm not complaining, but you can always do better."
Brosius, who was mired in a 1-for-16 slump, went 3 for 5 in helping New York win for the sixth time in eight games.
"I saw some signs the other day that he was coming out of it because he was hitting the ball the other way and he did that tonight," Yankee Manager Joe Torre said.
RED SOX 12, INDIANS 5: Nomar Garciaparra hit two of Boston's five home runs and the Red Sox pounded Jaret Wright and the Indians in Cleveland.
"I'm sure [Wright] made pitches he didn't want to make," Garciaparra said. "He went out and pitched his game, but sometimes you don't hit your spots and we were able to capitalize."
The Red Sox won despite five passed balls by Jason Varitek, one short of the major league record. He struggled while catching knuckleballer Tim Wakefield (3-4), with three runs scoring on passed balls.
Varitek, however, had three hits with a home run.
Wright (4-3) appeared to be tentative in allowing nine hits and eight runs in 3 2/3 innings. It was his first start since AL President Gene Budig said he wanted to meet with Wright next week to discuss the pitcher's "deportment on the mound."
None of Wright's 72 pitches came close to hitting a batter this time, but several were hit hard and two landed in the bleachers.
WHITE SOX 9, TIGERS 1: Greg Norton homered twice for the second straight game and Chicago hit six home runs in all to defeat host Detroit.
The White Sox came within one of the team record for homers set on April 23, 1955, at Kansas City.
RANGERS 6, TWINS 4: Juan Gonzalez, Rafael Palmeiro and Ivan Rodriguez hit consecutive homers in a five-run first inning as Texas beat Minnesota in Arlington, Tex.
Texas won its fourth in a row, matching its longest winning streak of the season. The Rangers have taken six straight from the Twins. Minnesota opened a six-game trip with its third straight defeat.
ROYALS 11, ANGELS 4: Chuck Finley struck out seven consecutive batters, coming within one of tying the AL record, but Kansas City came back to beat host Anaheim. Finley struck out the side in the second and third innings, and began the fourth by fanning Carlos Beltran. But Johnny Damon then singled to start the Royals' four-run inning.
MARINERS 6, DEVIL RAYS 1: Ken Griffey Jr. extended his career-best hitting streak to 16 games and host Seattle went above .500 for the second time this season.
Butch Huskey hit a three-run homer in the first inning and Russ Davis added a solo shot in the fifth to help rookie Freddy Garcia (6-1) win his third decision in a row.
