NEW YORK — Paul O'Neill and David Justice hit 10th-inning home runs off Derek Lowe as the New York Yankees overcame a pair of Manny Ramirez homers to beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 Sunday.

Jason Varitek had given the Red Sox a 3-2 lead in the 10th with a broken-bat single off Mariano Rivera (1-1), but the Yankees came right back off Lowe (1-3) and avoided falling four games back in the AL East for the first time since Sept. 24, 1997.

O'Neill connected with one out for his seventh home run of the season and, one out later, Justice hit his fourth to nearly the same spot in right field.

Ramirez connected twice off rookie Ted Lilly, a deep drive to center in the second inning and a wind-blown pop to left in the sixth. It was the 24th multihomer game for Ramirez, his second this season.

MARINERS 5, ANGELS 0: At Seattle, Al Martin doubled and homered and Aaron Sele (3-0) pitched six shutout innings as Seattle completed its first four-game sweep ever against the Angels.

Martin, who entered the game with a .118 average, went 2-for-4 with two RBIs starting in place of designated hitter Edgar Martinez, who got a day off to rest his sore left elbow.

The Mariners had never swept the Angels in a series at home before this weekend. They took a three-game series in Anaheim, Aug. 2-4, 1994.

Ramon Ortiz (2-2) took the loss.

INDIANS 11, TIGERS 3: At Cleveland, Russell Branyan drove in four runs, Jim Thome hit a two-run homer and Juan Gonzalez had a solo shot as Cleveland win its sixth straight.

Wil Cordero had three hits and scored three runs as every Indians starter got at least one of the Cleveland's season-high 19 hits.

Branyan had a two-run single, an RBI triple off Dave Mlicki (0-2) and a sacrifice fly for the Indians, who have won eight of nine.

Dave Burba (2-1) had his usual uneven outing, but improved to 7-1 in his last 11 starts since Aug. 30. He allowed three runs and six hits in five innings.

RANGERS 11, ATHLETICS 2: At Arlington, Texas, Rick Helling, Texas' No. 1 starter, struck out eight and got his first win of the season and Ivan Rodriguez homered for the third straight game.

Helling (1-3) gave up just two runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings, which is his longest outing. He was winless his first four starts, and had given up 20 runs and 26 hits in 13 1/3 innings the last three.

Rafael Palmeiro hit a three-run homer for the Rangers against Tim Hudson (2-2), and Alex Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with a walk to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.

ROYALS 5, BLUE JAYS 1: At Kansas City, Mo., Dan Reichert allowed two hits in eight-plus innings and Mark Quinn and Mike Sweeney hit two-run homers for Kansas City.

Reichert (2-1) allowed one unearned run, struck out six and walked five, leaving after walking the first two batters in the ninth. Roberto Hernandez got his fourth save.

Quinn homered in the fourth inning off Esteban Loaiza (3-1) and Sweeney connected in the eighth off Kelvim Escobar, the club-record 15th straight game the Royals have homered in.

ORIOLES 10, DEVIL RAYS 8 (11): At St. Petersburg, Fla., Delino DeShields hit an RBI single off Esteban Yan (1-1) in the 11th inning as Baltimore beat Tampa Bay.

The Orioles won despite blowing a three-run lead with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. The Devil Rays were down to their final out when Russ Johnson and Greg Vaughn hit back-to-back homers off closer Ryan Kohlmeier.
