Scott Hatteberg delivered the biggest hits. Mark Mulder threw his share of quality pitches. Jermaine Dye and Bobby Crosby made the key plays.

All in all, a complete game for the Oakland Athletics.

Hatteberg homered twice, drove in five runs and made a nifty slide to score while Mulder hung on for his major league-leading 15th win, leading the streaking Athletics over the Yankees, 13-4, last night in New York.

"The defense was outstanding and we had a lot of good at-bats," A's Manager Ken Macha said. "I don't think Mark had his best stuff."

Jorge Posada and Gary Sheffield hit early home runs that put New York ahead 4-1, but the A's stormed back to win for the ninth time in 10 games in a matchup of AL division leaders.

"They jumped on Mark pretty quick, and that's rare," Hatteberg said.

Mulder (15-3) won at a ballpark where he's usually struggled -- he was 0-4 with a 9.97 ERA at Yankee Stadium in the regular season, though he was 1-1 at New York in the 2001 playoffs.

The game turned on a defensive gem by right fielder Dye.

It was tied at 4 in the fourth inning when the Yankees put two runners on with two outs. Derek Jeter followed with a drive toward the corner and Dye jumped at the wall to take away an extra-base hit, leaving his spike marks in the padded fence.

* RANGERS 5, TIGERS 4: Mark Teixeira and Kevin Mench homered, and Eric Young hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning to lift Texas on the road.

Young went 3 for 5 for the struggling Rangers, who won for just the third time in 10 games.

Frank Francisco (3-1) pitched 11/3 perfect innings in relief of Kenny Rogers, who failed in an attempt to become the American League's second 14-game winner.

* RED SOX 5, DEVIL RAYS 2: Curt Schilling pitched a six-hitter for his third complete game of the season, and Jason Varitek hit a two-run homer as Boston won on the road.

Schilling (13-5) struck out seven and walked one in his 82nd complete game, improving to 3-0 at Tampa Bay, with two of the wins this season.

* TWINS 10, ANGELS 0: Backed by sound defense and a burst of power, Carlos Silva pitched his first career complete game and shutout for host Minnesota.

The Twins hit four home runs and turned a season-high five double plays, winning for the 12th time in 14 games.

Silva (10-7), making his 22nd career start, struck out three.

* WHITE SOX 12, ROYALS 4: Jose Contreras won his debut for visiting Chicago, and Paul Konerko hit a grand slam to tie for the AL home run lead at 28.

Contreras (9-5), obtained from the New York Yankees on Saturday for slumping all-star Esteban Loaiza, was given a 7-0 lead by the fifth inning and left after the sixth.

* BLUE JAYS 7, INDIANS 6: In Toronto, pinch hitter Frank Menechino drew a bases-loaded walk to drive in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning after Carlos Delgado hit a two-run homer to tie it.

Down 5-3, Toronto sent 10 batters to the plate in the eighth and scored four times to take the lead.

Justin Speier (3-6) allowed one hit in a scoreless eighth for the win.
