Anaheim, Calif. (ap) — Mark Trumbo homered leading off the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, lifting the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over Detroit yesterday for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.

Detroit lefty Phil Coke (0-2) intentionally walked Pujols with two outs and the bases empty in the 12th before striking out Josh Hamilton on three pitches. But Trumbo drove a 3-1 pitch into the top part of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his second homer of the season.

Jerome Williams (1-0) got the victory with three innings of two-hit relief.

Rangers 11, Mariners 3

Arlington, Texas — Nelson Cruz hit his fifth career grand slam, one of four home runs by Texas in a victory that completed a three-game sweep over Seattle.

Cruz went way deep, an estimated 431 feet to left-center field, to cap a five-run fifth that chased Aaron Harang (0-2).

Leonys Martin, Mitch Moreland and Adrian Beltre also homered for the Rangers, whose 11 runs were a season high. Martin had a triple leading off the fifth before scoring on Ian Kinsler’s bloop single to right.

Indians 5, Astros 4

Houston — Mark Reynolds’ seventh homer of the season put Cleveland on top in the seventh inning and the Indians held on for a win over Houston.

The home run by Reynolds, who also homered in Cleveland’s 19-6 win Saturday, was one of four solo shots for the Indians, who took two of three in the series.

Twins 5, White Sox 3

Chicago — Josh Willingham atoned for an earlier misplay with a tiebreaking three-run double in Minnesota’s four-run seventh inning, leading the Twins to a victory over slumping Chicago.

Aaron Hicks singled in a run and Justin Morneau had a bases-loaded walk as Minnesota swept a pair of weekend games against Chicago to stretch its winning streak to four.

Scott Diamond (1-1) pitched six effective innings, keeping the Twins in the game while they struggled to score against Gavin Floyd. Diamond allowed two runs, one earned, and four hits in his first start since he made his season debut in a loss to the New York Mets on April 13.

Rays 8, Athletics 1

St. Petersburg, Fla. — Roberto Hernandez pitched six effective innings for his first win since he was known as Fausto Carmona, and Tampa Bay completed a three-game sweep of Oakland.

Hernandez (1-3) allowed one run, three hits, three walks and had seven strikeouts in his first win since Sept. 20, 2011, while with Cleveland.

Blue Jays 8, Yankees 4

Toronto — J.P. Arencibia hit a two-run homer, Melky Cabrera had three hits and Toronto rallied for a victory over New York after Josh Johnson walked in the tying and go-ahead runs.

Brett Cecil (1-0) worked 1 1-3 innings for the win as the Blue Jays capped a seven-game homestand on a winning note.

Interleague

Dodgers 7, Orioles 4

Baltimore — Mark Ellis drove in three runs, and the Dodgers beat erratic Jake Arrieta and the Orioles to snap a six-game losing streak.

Matt Kemp singled in the go-ahead run during a four-run fifth inning, and the Dodgers received a solid performance from their bullpen in the finale of the three-game interleague series.

Making his fourth start of the season, Arrieta (1-1) allowed only two singles in four-plus innings. But he walked five — three of whom scored — and hit a batter, who also came home.

Adam Jones homered for the Orioles and Chris Davis had three hits.

Before the game, the Dodgers put scheduled starter Chad Billingsley on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow soreness and recalled Stephen Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque to take his place on the mound.

Fife, who started five games with Los Angeles last season, recovered from a rocky start to allow four runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings.

J.P. Howell (1-0) gave up a single before getting the final out in the fifth. Matt Guerrier and Paco Rodriguez each pitched a hitless inning, Kenley Jansen allowed a single in the eighth and Brandon League got three outs for his fifth save.
