Yankees shut out Tigers 1-0
(NEW YORK) - After seeing his Yankees rotation mates go pitch for pitch against Detroit's three Cy Young Award winners, Shane Greene was determined to match their outings. He did them all one better. Greene was lifted in the ninth inning after giving up only his fifth hit, then watched as closer David Robertson got pinch-hitter Miguel Cabrera to ground into a double play inNew York's 1-0 victory over the Tigers on Thursday. Robertson came in after Ian Kinsler led off with a single, and then Green walked Victor Martinez. Robertson got Cabrera to bounce into a double play and got Don Kelly to softly line out to shortstop with a runner on third for his 31st save and New York's fifth win in six games. Stephen Drew's RBI ground-rule double was the only extra-base hit in a game dominated by Green and fellow 25 year old starter Rick Porcello. The Yankees took two of three in games started by the Tigers' Cy Young winners with spectacular efforts from their rotation. Greene (3-1) walked three and struck out five while pitching into the ninth inning for the first time in his career. He didn't permit a runner past second until Ezequiel Carrera advanced to third on Kinsler's single in the sixth. The right-hander got out of it with his second double play. Porcello (13-6) gave up nine hits in seven innings and struck out five. The Yankees loaded the bases in the seventh but the New Jersey-born Porcello got Martin Prado to ground his 110th pitch to shortstop Andrew Romine.

Mariners blast White Sox 13-3
(SEATTLE) - Sometimes the best solutions are also the simplest. After a midseason rough patch in which Seattle Mariners rookie Roenis Elias allowed at least five earned runs in three consecutive starts, the left-hander has produced four straight stellar starts following the All-Star break. Elias took a no-hitter into the fifth inning to lead the Mariners to a 13-3 series-opening win against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. He will have to wait a little while longer to make his next impact in the big leagues. In an effort to limit his innings, the Mariners optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma after Thursday's outing. Elias (9-9) has a 2.08 ERA and 26 strikeouts in four starts since the break. He is the top rookie in the majors with 23 starts and 134 2/3 innings pitched. He won't be in the minors for long as he is expected to rejoin the Mariners in 10 days when the team is in Philadelphia. A corresponding roster move will be made on Friday. Elias allowed only one walk before Conor Gillaspie hit a one-out double in the fifth. Elias stranded Gillaspie, but left the game after giving up a two-run home run to Dayan Viciedo with two outs in the sixth. Elias allowed a season-low two hits, walked three, and struck out five. Scott Carroll (4-7) pitched five-plus innings, allowing seven runs and seven hits. He walked three and hit a batter. Four relievers combined to allow six runs, five hits, and four walks.

Baez's homers help Cubs bear Rockies 6-2
(DENVER) - The Chicago Cub's future looks bright even if their present is a little disappointing. Rookie Javier Baez hit two more homers and drove in four runs, leading Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs to a 6-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday. The Cubs' 21 year old prized prospect became the first MLB player with three homers in his first three games since Joe Cunningham in 1954. He also became the first Cubs player since 1900 to post a multihomer game in his first three games. The Cubs (49-64) closed out a six-game trip by taking two of three in the series between last-place teams. Baez led off the sixth inning with a shot down the left-field line against Yohan Flande (0-4). He hit a two-run shot off Juan Nicasio into the Colorado bullpen in right in the eighth. Hendricks (3-1) pitched a career-high eight innings after the start of the game was delayed 39 minutes because of rain. The rookie right-hander has pitched into the seventh inning in four of his five career starts. Justin Morneau and Wilin Rosario had two hits each for the Rockies (45-69), who have lost six of seven.
