AMERICAN

Red Sox 9, Yankees 2

Clay Buchholz pitched six innings of two-hit ball to improve to 11-0 and Daniel Nava had four hits to lead Boston to a victory over New York on Sunday night and eliminate the visiting Yankees from the A.L. East race. Boston leads second-place Tampa Bay by 91/2 games with a magic number of four to clinch its second division title since 1995. The Yankees trail the Rays and Texas Rangers by three in the wild-card standings, with Cleveland and Baltimore also ahead of them in the race. The Yankees had won the last two division titles and 13 of the last 17.

Tigers 3, Royals 2

Alex Avila homered twice, including a tiebreaking solo shot in the eighth inning that lifted Detroit over visiting Kansas City. The Tigers’ Max Scherzer struck out 12 in seven innings, but he was denied his 20th victory when the Royals tied it off Drew Smyly in the eighth. Avila answered in the bottom half with a homer to right-center. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his 20th save in 20 chances for the A.L. Central-leading Tigers.

Joel Peralta gave up a solo homer to Ryan Doumit in the eighth inning and a three-run drive to Josmil Pinto, and Tampa Bay stumbled again in the playoff race with a loss to Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Pirates 3, Cubs 2

Francisco Liriano took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning before faltering in his first no-decision this season, and pinch-hitter Justin Morneau singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth to lead Pittsburgh over visiting Chicago. The Pirates, who are tied with St. Louis for the N.L. Central lead, took three of four from the last-place Cubs and won for the sixth time in seven games. Morneau, acquired from Minnesota on Aug. 31, drove in his first run for the Pirates. The 2006 A.L. MVP is batting .279 (12 for 43) with Pittsburgh.
