INDIANS 5, RAYS 0: At St. Petersburg, Fla., Carlos Carrasco took another no-hit try into the late innings at Tropicana Field, losing his bid on a two-out single in the seventh by Logan Morrison but leading the Cleveland over Tampa Bay.

The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the first on Mahtook's second homer in as many days.

Matt Belisle did what he could, but it was not enough.

Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer, his fourth home run of the year, in the eighth inning after James McCann reached a career-best five RBIs by hitting into a forceout with runners on first and third.

TWINS 9, TIGERS 4: At Detroit, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario homered and drove in three runs each as Minnesota extended its winning streak to six.

Mahtook doubled and Justin Upton singled with one out in the first off Twins starter Jose Berrios - who had given up five, first-inning runs in his previous start and won. He has a.258 batting average with 11 home runs and 37 RBI for the season. Joe Mauer drive in the other two runs for Minnesota. The Twins are allowing an average of 3.2 runs during the winning streak and leaned heavily in the series opener on the bullpen, which responded by allowing one run and four hits in 4 1/3 innings in relief of ineffective starter Kyle Gibson.

WHITE SOX 6, ROYALS 3: At Chicago, Tim Anderson hit a two-run homer to cap a four-run, seventh-inning rally, Reynaldo Lopez pitched six strong innings in his White Sox debut and Chicago won its fourth straight. The Tigers had lost six of seven before the offense came to life and overcame the pitching Saturday night against the surging Minnesota Twins. Minnesota's Paul Molitor learned after Friday night's 9-4 win over Detroit that it was his 200th as the club's manager. OF JIm Adduci was sent back to the Mud Hens. And considering the fact the Twins traded their closer Brandon Kintzler at the trade deadline, Detroit was confident going into the final frame.
