MLB roundup: Orioles reclaim lead in AL East
Jonathan Schoop singled home the go-ahead run in the 12th inning and the Orioles ended a season-worst five-game losing streak, beating the Blue Jays, 6-2, Sunday in Toronto to reclaim the AL East lead.
Adam Jones hit his 20th homer later in the 12th, a three-run shot that helped the Orioles avoid a three-game sweep and move a half-game ahead of the Blue Jays.
Mychael Givens (8-1) worked one inning for the victory as the Orioles won for the first time in six games at Toronto.
Also Sunday, the Orioles acquired lefty Wade Miley (7-8 with a 4.98 ERA) in a trade with the Seattle Mariners for left-handed Cuban pitcher Ariel Miranda who has spend most of the year with Class AAA Norfolk.
RED SOX 5, ANGELS 3 (at Anaheim, Calif.) — Dustin Pedroia hit a go-ahead, three-run homer off Huston Street with two outs in the ninth and Xander Bogaerts followed with another home run to lead Boston.
RANGERS 5, ROYALS 3 (at Arlington, Texas) — Mitch Moreland homered for the fifth time in his past five starts and Lucas Harrell won in his Texas debut to finish a sweep of the four-game series.
INDIANS 8, ATHLETICS 0 (at Cleveland) — Corey Kluber limited Oakland to five hits in seven innings, Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer for his 24th of the season, and Cleveland completed a three-game sweep.
TIGERS 11, ASTROS 0 (at Detroit) — James McCann capped a six-run first with his first career grand slam as Detroit completed a three-game sweep. Miguel Cabrera homered twice for the Tigers.
TWINS 6, WHITE SOX 4 (at Minneapolis) — Brian Dozier homered twice and Ervin Santana posted another strong start.
MARLINS 5, CARDINALS 4 (at Miami) — Pinch-hitter Derek Dietrich hit an RBI triple with two out in the ninth inning as Miami earned a split of the four-game series.
The score was tied with two out in the ninth when Adeiny Hechavarria — who had made a costly throwing error earlier — singled off Matt Bowman (1-3). Dietrich then hit a drive into the left-field gap.
The teams finished their season series with Miami leading St. Louis for the second NL wild card by one game.

BREWERS 4, PIRATES 2 (at Milwaukee) — Jonathan Lucroy waved his helmet to acknowledge a standing ovation at Miller Park, and in what could be his final appearance for Milwaukee, flied out as a pinch hitter.
