Nelson Cruz helps bury Rangers in return to Texas

MLB capsules

ARLINGTON, Texas — Nelson Cruz hit a towering three-run homer in his return to Texas and the Baltimore Orioles won their third straight game, 8-3 over the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Cruz drove the first pitch from Shawn Tolleson deep into the left-field seats, capping a six-run Orioles outburst in the eighth. The slugger, who spent the previous eight seasons in Texas, is hitting .313 and leads the majors with 21 homers and 55 RBIs.

Adam Jones matched a career high with four hits, including a homer off the right-field pole leading off the Baltimore fourth. Rookie catcher Caleb Johnson had a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth.

Brian Matusz (2-1) went 1 2-3 innings in relief of Ubaldo Jimenez, who held Texas to one run and four hits while striking out five over 5 2-3 innings.

Alexi Ogando (2-3), the second Texas reliever, got a popup to start the eighth before allowing three straight Orioles to reach.

WHITE SOX 4, DODGERS 1

LOS ANGELES — Jose Abreu homered for the second straight game and Tyler Flowers also went deep to lead Chicago.

Yasiel Puig went 2 for 4 with a double for the Dodgers on the one-year anniversary of his major league debut.

Hector Noesi (1-3) ended a stretch of 19 winless starts, winning as a starter for the first time since May 6, 2012 with Seattle, after going 0-12 with a 5.42 ERA. The 27-year-old right-hander allowed a run and five hits over six innings with six strikeouts.

Former Dodgers reliever Ronald Belisario pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save.

Dan Haren (5-4) gave up four runs on six hits through six innings.

ATHLETICS 5, YANKEES 2

NEW YORK — Brandon Moss hit his second homer of the game leading off the 10th inning, and Oakland rallied for the road win.

Returning to the lineup after missing two games with a strained right calf, Moss drilled a full-count pitch from Adam Warren (1-3) into the second deck down the right field line for his 15th homer. That gave the AL West-leading A's their first lead in a game that was delayed more than an hour at the start by rain.

Dan Otero (5-1) pitched an inning and Sean Doolittle finished off the A's fourth straight win with a perfect 10th for his sixth save.

Mark Teixeira hit his 10th homer for the Yankees.
