Yankees top Verlander, Tigers 5-1
(NEW YORK) – Chris Capuano outpitched Justin Verlander, while Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered to put the New York Yankees past the Detroit Tigers 5-1 Wednesday night. The Yankees have taken two of the first three in the four-game series and went 2-1 against the past three AL Cy Young Award winners. Capuano gave up an unearned run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings, struck out eight and walked one. The Yankees got the 35-year-old lefty from Colorado this past month, after he had begun the season with Boston. Adam Warren (2-5) got four outs for the win. With runners at the corners in the eighth, he came back from a 3-0 count to strike out J.D. Martinez, then retired Nick Castellanos on a fly ball. Verlander (10-10) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, walked one and fanned five. He has not given up fewer than two runs in any of his 24 starts this season. Michigan native Derek Jeter singled for his 3,429th hit and needs one more to hit to tie Honus Wagner for sixth place on the all-time hits list.

Rangers top White Sox 3-1
(CHICAGO) – Adam Rosales hasn't been a big hitter throughout his career. Except when he faces Chris Sale. Rosales homered twice in a game for the first time in his career and Nick Tepesch pitched scoreless ball into the sixth inning, leading the Texas Rangers over Sale and the Chicago White Sox 3-1 Wednesday. Rosales hit a two-run shot in the second of Sale (10-2), Chicago's left-handed ace, and added a solo shot in the seventh of reliever Daniel Webb. Rosales entered the game with only one homer this season, 21 in his career and a .222 lifetime batting average in parts of seven seasons. But against Sale, a three-time All-Star, Rosales is 6 for 11 with three homers. The Rangers, who began the day with baseball's worst record, have won consecutive games for the first time since June 27-28. They routed the White Sox 16-0 on Tuesday night. Tepesch (4-7) gave up six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He had lost four straight decisions, and skipped a turn because of a sore left knee. Sale allowed three hits in six innings, striking out nine. Dayan Viciedo homered in the seventh off Roman Mendez. Neftali Feliz got two outs for his fourth save in five chances. White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton exited in the second after running into the into the right-center field fence trying to catch Rosales' homer. Eaton bruised his lower back.

Colorado thumps Chicago 13-4
(DENVER) – Carlos Gonzalez has had an inconsistent season because of injuries. But on Wednesday the 2010 batting champ showed what he can do when he's mostly healthy. Gonzalez homered, doubled and singled in his return to the lineup, and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 13-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. It was Gonzalez's first four-hit game since he went 5 for 5 against Texas exactly three months ago. He sparked the team to a rare win since the All-Star break. Corey Dickerson The Rockies hadn't won since they beat the Cubs the past week at Wrigley Field, but they ended their struggles with a big sixth inning against starter Jake Arrieta (6-3). Trailing 4-3, the first seven Colorado batters recorded hits, including Gonzalez's 11th homer, a two-run shot that gave the Rockies a 6-4 lead. Jordan Lyles (6-1) came off the 60-day disabled list to earn his first win since May 10. He allowed four runs on six hits in six innings in the first start by a Rockies right-hander in 21 games. Arrieta left after allowing pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes' RBI single that made it 9-4. Arrieta, who had not allowed more than four runs in a game this season, gave up nine runs on 13 hits. The nine earned runs allowed matched a career high.
