Washburn out-duels Perkins in M's 2-0 win

Washburn out-duels Perkins in M's 2-0 win
Mariners 2, TWINS 0 -- At Minneapolis, Jarrod Washburn gave up five hits in eight innings and Brandon Morrow got his first save of the season for the Mariners.

Washburn struck out four with just one walk to get his first victory since July 27. Adrian Beltre and Rob Johnson had RBI singles for the Mariners.

BLUE JAYS 6, Tigers 2 -- At Toronto, Ricky Romero outpitched Rick Porcello in the first matchup of former first-round draft picks making their major league debuts against each other, and the Blue Jays rallied to beat the Tigers.

Marco Scutaro hit a two-run homer, and Aaron Hill and Adam Lind added solo shots for Toronto. Lind went 3-for-4, raising his average to .583.

Royals 2, White Sox 1 -- At Chicago, Coco Crisp's two-run homer in the ninth inning broke a scoreless tie and the Royals held off the White Sox. It was 0-0 when Crisp connected off Bobby Jenks. Alberto Callaspo doubled with one out and Crisp hit the next pitch for his first home run of the season. The White Sox scored on Jermaine Dye's RBI grounder in the ninth, then put two runners on base before Joakim Soria struck out pinch-hitter Wilson Betemit to end it.

Rangers 12, Indians 8 -- At Arlington, Texas, Marlon Byrd and Ian Kinsler hit long home runs as the Rangers swept the Indians. Byrd's homer was a three-run shot that capped a five-run first off Carl Pavano, making his first start for Cleveland after being a free-agent bust with the Yankees the past four seasons. Byrd matched a career high with five RBIs.
