SHARE MLB roundup: Teixeira doubles Yanks to win; Santana and Hammel pitch 1-hitters

WASHINGTON — Mark Teixeira hit a two-run double in the 14th inning Saturday and the New York Yankees beat the Washington Nationals 5-3 for their eighth consecutive victory.

Teixeira's drive to the right-field corner off Brad Lidge (0-1) brought home Jayson Nix and Derek Jeter in the longest game by innings for either team this season.

The game ended when Soriano got Bryce Harper to ground out, ending an 0-for-7 day for the Nationals' teen sensation that included five strikeouts.

ANGELS 2, DIAMONDBACKS 0: At Anaheim, Calif., Ervin Santana took a perfect game into the seventh inning before finishing with a one-hitter, and Mark Trumbo hit a two-run homer. Santana (4-7) bounced back from several rough outings by retiring Arizona's first 20 hitters before Justin Upton's two-out single to center in the seventh.

ORIOLES 5, BRAVES 0: At Atlanta, Jason Hammel pitched a one-hitter for his first career shutout, allowing only Jason Heyward's two-out single in the seventh inning. Hammel (7-2) struck out eight and walked two.

MARLINS 4, RAYS 3 (15 INNINGS): St. Petersburg, Fla., Scott Cousins hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the 15th inning to lift Miami to the win. Former Ray Justin Ruggiano doubled with one out and raced home when Cousins, playing his second game since being recalled from the minors, sent a pitch from Brandon Gomes (1-2) down the right-field line.

RANGERS 8, ASTROS 3: At Arlington, Texas, Nelson Cruz hit a towering three-run homer and the Rangers rallied to make Justin Grimm a winner in his major league debut. Grimm (1-0), whose contract was purchased earlier in the day from Double-A Frisco, allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.

CARDINALS 10, ROYALS 7: At St. Louis, Matt Holliday homered and drove in five runs to power St. Louis to the victory.

PIRATES 9, INDIANS 2: At Cleveland, A.J. Burnett became the first Pittsburgh pitcher since 1990 to win six straight starts and Pedro Alvarez homered twice. Burnett (7-2) extended the best stretch by a Pirates pitcher since Doug Drabek won six in a row during his NL Cy Young Award-winning season.

RED SOX 4, CUBS 3: At Chicago, Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered to back a strong start by Jon Lester.

BLUE JAYS 6, PHILLIES 5 (10 INNINGS): At Toronto, Rajai Davis drove home the winning run with a two-out drive in the 10th inning that bounced over the wall and Toronto extended Cliff Lee's winless streak to 11.

BREWERS 6, TWINS 2: At Minneapolis, Ryan Braun hit two home runs and Michael Fiers pitched seven strong innings for Milwaukee.

TIGERS 4, ROCKIES 1: At Detroit, Doug Fister pitched six shutout innings in his return from the disabled list and Miguel Cabrera homered to lead Detroit to the win.

ATHLETICS 6, PADRES 4: At Oakland, Calif., pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes belted a two-run homer in the seventh inning.

MARINERS 7, GIANTS 4: At Seattle, Jesus Montero and Casper Wells hit long first-inning homers off Tim Lincecum and the Seattle Mariners rallied.

WHITE SOX 5, DODGERS 4: At Los Angeles, Phil Humber scattered nine hits over five innings and drove in a run at the plate to lead Chicago over L.A.
