NEW YORK (AP) Brandon McCarthy earned his first win for the Yankees with an impressive debut in pinstripes, and Brett Gardner drove in three runs from the leadoff spot to send New York past the Cincinnati Reds 7-1 on Saturday.
Carlos Beltran homered, Kelly Johnson hit a two-run single to back McCarthy (1-0), who allowed one run and six hits, struck out nine and walked none over six innings. McCarthy, acquired from Arizona on July 6, was making his first home start for New York.
All-Star Alfredo Simon (12-4) gave up four runs - two earned - and five hits in five innings. He had been 6-0 with a 2.47 ERA in eight starts since a 6-3 loss at Dodger Stadium on May 27.
INDIANS 6, TIGERS 2
DETROIT (AP) - Corey Kluber came within an out of a complete game, striking out 10 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
Kluber (10-6) allowed seven hits, including three by Miguel Cabrera. He was relieved by Bryan Shaw in the ninth after equaling his career high of 114 pitches.
Drew VerHagen (0-1) allowed three runs and five hits over five innings in his major league debut.
BLUE JAYS 4, RANGERS 1
TORONTO (AP) - Marcus Stroman (5-2) gave up four hits in seven shutout innings to snap a three-start winless streak, and Dan Johnson had two RBIs.
Melky Cabrera had three hits as the Blue Jays won for the first time in four games. Aaron Loup got three outs for his third save.
Colby Lewis (6-7) gave up two runs and eight hits in five innings. Texas, which stopped an eight-game losing streak with Friday's 5-1 victory, has not strung together consecutive wins since beating Minnesota on June 27 and 28 and has the worst record in the major leagues at 39-58.
