Teagarden's shot leads Orioles past Tigers

BALTIMORE -- Taylor Teagarden ended his first game with the Baltimore Orioles in stunning fashion, hitting a two-run homer in the 13th inning that sealed an 8-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers in the American League on Saturday.

In a back-and-forth duel that lasted 4 hours, 43 minutes, Baltimore scored three runs in the 13th to secure its 10th straight extra-inning win and end Detroit's six-game winning streak.

The Orioles got a run in the 11th after the Tigers scored in the top half, then rallied again in the 13th after Quintin Berry put Detroit ahead 6-5 with a two-out RBI single.

In the bottom half, J.J. Hardy ended an 0-for-28 skid with a solo homer off Joaquin Benoit (1-2). After Adam Jones was hit by a pitch with two outs, Teagarden homered over the right-field wall.

Teagarden had missed the entire season with a strained back. He entered after starting catcher Matt Wieters left for a pinch runner in the 10th.

Kevin Gregg (3-2) got the last out in the 13th for the win.

Yankees 5, Angels 3 At New York, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson each hit two-run homers to lead the Yankees past Los Angeles.

Freddy Garcia and three relievers kept Angels outfielder Mark Trumbo in the ballpark, denying him a homer in a record sixth straight game against the Yankees.

Cano's 21st homer made it 2-2 in the first inning and extended his 17-game hitting streak. Granderson connected for his 24th home run with one out in the third after Chris Stewart singled leading off.

Garcia (4-2) labored through five innings, while the Angels' Jerome Williams (6-6) took the loss.

Blue Jays 11, Indians 9 At Toronto, Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs and Yunel Escobar also went deep as the Blue Jays used an eight-run third inning to beat Cleveland.

Encarnacion and Escobar both hit two-run shots in Toronto's highest-scoring inning of the season.

Shelley Duncan, Michael Brantley and Casey Kotchman homered for the Indians. Down 10-2 early, Cleveland made it close with a five-run eighth.
