BALTIMORE (AP) A spikes-high slide. A near beanball. Harsh talk in the clubhouse.

The rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles soared to a new level over the weekend, and there's no telling what might happen when they soon meet again.

A tempestuous three-game series between these AL East foes wound up with Orioles star Manny Machado seeing a fastball sail behind his head and Matt Barnes getting ejected for throwing it Sunday in Boston's 6-2 victory.


Murphy hits slam as Nats' run reaches 7

NEW YORK (AP) Daniel Murphy hit an early grand slam against his former team, Max Scherzer pitched eight fiery innings and the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Sunday night for their seventh straight victory.

Ryan Zimmerman added a two-run homer for the Nationals, who completed a three-game sweep of the short-handed Mets in the first series this season between the NL East rivals.


Rockies finish sweep of reeling Giants

DENVER (AP) In between starts, the message to Kyle Freeland was rather low-key.

As in, low was the key.


Darvish goes 8, Rangers sweep 4 from KC

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Yu Darvish didn't get pulled early this time, and didn't have to try to explain a puzzling loss for Texas.

The Japanese right-hander pitched eight innings in his longest outing since elbow surgery two years ago and the Rangers scored the tying and go-ahead runs without a hit, completing a four-game sweep with a 5-2 win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.


Arroyo sharp as Reds avert sweep by Cubs

CINCINNATI (AP) With his high leg kick and below-the-radar breaking balls, Bronson Arroyo showed the Cubs a little old-style pitching. Who needs to throw 90 mph to beat the World Series champions?

The 40-year-old righty gave his best performance yet in his long comeback from elbow problems, pitching three-hit ball over six innings on Sunday, and the Cincinnati Reds salvaged a 7-5 victory . Arroyo worked fast, varied the angles of his deliveries, and kept `em guessing with his minimalist pitches.


Astros come from 4 down, beat Rays in 10

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) It was difficult, but the AL West-leading Houston Astros won their first series at Tampa Bay in nearly a decade.

Brian McCann and Yuli Gurriel both had RBI singles in the 10th inning, and the Astros rallied from an early four-run deficit to beat the Rays 6-4 on Sunday.


Nova beats former team, Bucs top Yankees

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ivan Nova spent more than six years with the New York Yankees, fluctuating between good and not-so good as they waited for him to develop consistency to go with his occasionally top-end-of-the-rotation stuff.

It never happened and the Yankees moved on last summer, sending Nova to the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline.


Hicks has 5 RBIs, Tigers rip Twins 13-4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Detroit Tigers have devised quite a system for getting production out of their emergency call-ups: get them to the ballpark as late as possible before throwing them into the lineup.

"Sometimes that's the best way to do it," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Doesn't give you time to think about anything."


Cruz drives in 5 as M's beat A's 11-1

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) On a day when the Mariners got production up and down the lineup while setting a season high for scoring, Nelson Cruz pointed to Seattle's pitching as the real key.

Specifically, Cruz noted, was the effort put out by starter Yovani Gallardo, who earned his first win in a Mariners uniform after three misses.


McCarthy helps Dodgers avoid sweep

PHOENIX (AP) Brandon McCarthy has been the Los Angeles Dodgers' best pitcher not named Clayton Kershaw this season.

On Sunday, with his team in dire need of a good performance, McCarthy was the best he's been so far.
