American League

Twins 9, Tigers 3: At Detroit, Matthew LeCroy, Luis Rivas and Jason Bartlett hit home runs and Minnesota beat the Tigers in a matchup of slumping teams.

Yankees 17, Devil Rays 3: At St. Petersburg, Fla., Jason Giambi hit his 30th homer and drove in five runs, helping New York rout Tampa Bay to nudge closer to first-place Boston in the East. The Yankees climbed a season-high 19 games better than .500 to pull within 2 1/2 games of the Red Sox.

Cardinals 5, Pirates 4: At St. Louis, Chris Carpenter blew a four-run lead in his worst outing since his 13-game winning streak began in mid-June, but the Cardinals rallied on David Eckstein’s ninth-inning RBI single to beat Pittsburgh.

Marlins 4, Astros 2: At Houston, Juan Pierre walked in the seventh inning when umpires said Houston pitcher Wandy Rodriguez touched his mouth with his hand while on the mound, and Paul Lo Duca followed with a tiebreaking, two-run homer that sent Florida on to a victory over the Astros.

Cubs 4, Reds 3 (10): At Chicago, Todd Walker’s long single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning gave the Cubs a victory over Cincinnati.
