Yankees top Price, Tigers 8-4
(DETROIT) - It was an inning that defied explanation, the New York Yankees banging out hit after hit against one of the best pitchers in baseball. The Yankees chased David Price with nin straight hits in the third inning, beating the Detroit Tigers 8-4 Wednesday night. New York scored all eight of its runs in the third off Price, who had pitched a one-hitter in his previous start. Jacoby Ellsbury started the barrage, and New York went all the way through the batting order until the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner was pulled after the ninth hit of the inning. Price (12-10) was the first pitcher who allowed nine straight hits in a game since Houston's Bob Forsch gave up nine against Cincinnati on August 3, 1989. Victor Martinez homered for Detroit. Rookie Shane Greene (4-1) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked one. The Yankees pulled within 2 1/2 games of Seattle for the second AL wild card, while Detroit remained a half-game behind the Mariners. The Tigers fell 2 1/2 games behind first-place Kansas City in the AL Central.


White Sox end slide by beating Cleveland
(CHICAGO) - After more than a week of losing, the Chicago White Sox needed their star to find the win column again. Jose Abreu hit a pair of run-scoring singles against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber, and the White Sox beat the Indians 3-2 Wednesday night to stop a season-high, seven-game losing streak. Kluber (13-8) lost consecutive starts for the first time this year, allowing three runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts. He entered Wednesday's contest with a 2.46 ERA. Abreu first got to Kluber in the third inning with an RBI single, driving in Adam Eaton and coming around to score when Adam Dunn doubled. Abreu put Chicago ahead for good in the seventh with his third hit of the game. Eaton doubled with one out off Kluber and advanced on Alexei Ramirez's groundout. Abreu then singled up the middle, driving in Eaton for his AL-high 96th RBI. White Sox starter Hector Noesi (8-9) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, improving to 5-2 in eight starts since the All-Star break.

Reds beat Cubs 7-5
(CINCINNATI) – Mat Latos had just enough for the win. Javier Baez's fly ball came up just short. It wasn't pretty, but it was predictable. The Reds won another ugly one over the Cubs. Skip Schumaker drove in a pair of runs with a double and a single on Wednesday night, and the Cincinnati Reds withstood Jorge Soler's first-at-bat homer and his RBI single for a 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Soler, a 22 year old prospect from Cuba, was called up Wednesday after getting a nine year, $30 million deal from the Cubs in 2012. After Luis Valbuena led off the second inning with a homer off Latos, Soler hit a 2-1 pitch into the Reds' bullpen in center field. Soler also had an RBI single off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth, cutting it to 6-5. Latos pitched into the eighth and gave up four runs while fanning a season-high 10 batters. Aroldis Chapman escaped a two-on threat in the ninth, getting his 28th save in 30 chances. The Cubs were missing first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who has a stiff lower back. Rizzo hit his 30th homer during a 3-0 win on Tuesday night but had to leave in the eighth inning because of the back problem.
