TORONTO — J.P. Arencibia hit a two-run homer, Melky Cabrera had three hits and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied for an 8-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday after Josh Johnson walked in the tying and go-ahead runs.


Arencibia hit his seventh homer, tying him with Baltimore’s Chris Davis for the AL lead, as the Blue Jays avoided their first three-game sweep against New York since the opening series of the 2003 season.


Dodgers 7, Orioles 4


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


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 the Tampa Bay Rays complete a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a victory.


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 the slumping Chicago White Sox.


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 the Houston Astros.


Rangers 11, Mariners 3


ARLINGTON, Texas — Nelson Cruz hit his fifth career grand slam, one of four home runs by the Texas Rangers in a victory to complete a three-game series sweep over the Seattle Mariners.


Angels 4, Tigers 3


ANAHEIM, Calif. — Mark Trumbo homered leading the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a victory over Detroit for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.


Royals 4, Red Sox 2 Royals 5, Red Sox 4


BOSTON — Lorenzo Cain drew a walk with two outs and the bases loaded in the 10th inning to give the Royals a sweep of a day-night doubleheader over the Red Sox.


Ervin Santana (2-1) pitched seven strong innings in the opener, when Kansas City won 4-2.


Kelvin Herrera (2-2) got the win in the night game, a makeup of the one postponed on Friday night because of the city-wide lockdown during the hunt for the Boston Marathon bombers.


Alex Gordon had three hits in the second game, including a single with one out in the 10th. Alcides Escobar walked and, after Billy Butler struck out, Eric Hosmer reached on an infield single — his fourth hit of the day.


Andrew Miller (0-1) walked Cain on four pitches to bring home Gordon for his third run of the game.
