ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Matt Joyce hit one of three homers off Jon Lester to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox 8-3 on Tuesday night.


Joyce, one day after being hit by a pitch that sparked a bench-clearing scrum, put the Rays up 7-3 on a two-run shot in the fifth that ended Lester’s night.


Desmond Jennings homered twice, while Evan Longoria also went deep for the Rays. Roberto Hernandez (4-6) allowed three runs and seven hits over seven-plus innings.


Orioles 3, Angels 2


BALTIMORE — Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run over eight innings and Nick Markakis hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the seventh inning as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Los Angeles Angels.


Light-hitting Ryan Flaherty contributed two well-timed hits for the Orioles, whose third straight victory put them a season-high nine games over .500.


The Angels lost their fourth in a row despite a home run by Mike Trout that traveled an estimated 448 feet.


Angels center fielder Peter Bourjos made the defensive play of the night, robbing J.J. Hardy of a two-run homer in the first inning. After retreating toward the warning track, Bourjos pressed his body against the wall with a perfectly timed leap, stuck his glove well over the 7-foot barrier and caught the ball.


Indians 5, Rangers 2


ARLINGTON, Texas — Corey Kluber allowed one run over eight innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Texas Rangers to snap an eight-game losing streak.


The Indians also ended a 12-game road losing streak.


Blue Jays 7, White Sox 5


CHICAGO — Jose Bautista hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning and Rajai Davis scored on a wild pitch in the 10th to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a win over the Chicago White Sox at a dimmed U.S. Cellular Field.


Chien-Ming Wang made his first start of the season after signing with the injury-riddled Blue Jays, lasting 7 1-3 innings while giving up five runs and 10 hits.
