NEW YORK — Hiroki Kuroda pitched two-hit ball for eight dominant innings and the New York Yankees again beat Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-0 on Friday night.


Austin Romine and Brett Gardner had run-scoring hits, Robinson Cano hit an RBI grounder and Jayson Nix had two sacrifice flies in dropping Buehrle to 1-10 in 15 starts against the Yankees. The left-hander hasn’t beaten New York since April 10, 2004, when he was with the Chicago White Sox.


The AL East-leading Yankees defeated last-place Toronto for the fifth straight time this season in New York and for the seventh time in eight games overall.


Kuroda (6-2) struck out five and walked one in cooling off a club that had scored 33 runs in its previous three games and had won a season-high four in a row.


Rays 12, Orioles 10


BALTIMORE — Kelly Johnson hit a three-run homer and an RBI single, and the Tampa Bay Rays held on for a victory over the slumping Baltimore Orioles.


Johnson and Yunel Escobar had three hits apiece in Tampa Bay’s highest scoring game of the season. Escobar also drove in three runs and Desmond Jennings added two hits and two RBIs.


The Orioles surrendered a season-high 17 hits for the second straight game and gave up their most runs in any game this season.


Chris Dickerson hit a three-run homer in Baltimore’s six-run eighth inning, but the Orioles’ rally stalled from there.


Indians 6, Mariners 3, 10 inn.


CLEVELAND — Jason Kipnis’ three-run homer in the 10th inning gave the Cleveland Indians a win over Seattle.


Kipnis’ home run came on an 0-1 pitch from Lucas Luetge and capped a two-out rally that began with a walk and an infield hit.
