  • ANAHEIM, Calif. — Albert Pujols, Howie Kendrick, Josh Hamilton and Mike Trout all homered off Jeremy Guthrie, and Los Angeles handed the Kansas City right-hander his first loss in 19 starts with a 6-2 win on Tuesday.
    Hamilton, the Angels' right fielder, made his fourth start at designated hitter after being removed from Monday night's series-opening loss in the seventh inning because of lightheadedness.
    Guthrie (5-1), an Ashland native, yielded five runs and 11 hits over seven innings. He held the franchise record for consecutive starts without a loss while winning his previous 10 decisions. It was his first loss since Aug. 3 last year, when Texas beat him 5-3 at Kansas City.
    It was the first time in Guthrie's 10-year career that he allowed four homers in a game.
    Yankees 4, Mariners 3
    At New York, Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Lyle Overbay delivered a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and New York rallied past Seattle after Felix Hernandez left following a couple of odd twists.
    Hernandez exited after six innings with a 3-1 lead, having outpitching CC Sabathia in the first matchup between the former Cy Young Award winners. Hernandez, however, tweaked his back in the sixth when he fielded a comebacker, pivoted and threw to second for a forceout.
    The right-hander allowed one earned run in another strong outing at Yankee Stadium, and leads the AL with a 1.53 ERA. Sabathia, who had won his last eight starts against Seattle, struck out 10 in 61/3 innings while giving up 10 hits.
    Rangers 6, Athletics 5,10 innings
    At Oakland, Calif., Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking home run in the 10th inning, Mitch Moreland followed with his second of the game and Joe Nathan made sure Texas held off Oakland.
    Nathan gave up a run in the bottom of the 10th but escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam to snap Texas' four-game losing streak to the Athletics.
    Beltre sent a 3-0 pitch from Chris Resop (1-1) to center field with one out in the 10th for his ninth homer of the year. Moreland connected two batters later. He also hit a two-run shot in the fourth.
    Rays 5, Red Sox 3
    At St. Petersburg, Fla., Matt Moore pitched six solid innings to remain unbeaten and tie for the major league lead in wins, sending the surging Tampa Bay Rays to a victory over the Boston Red Sox.
    Moore (7-0) yielded a three-run homer to David Ortiz in the first, then limited the struggling Red Sox to one hit over the next five innings.
    Tigers 6, Astros 2
    At Detroit, Miguel Cabrera homered, Doug Fister pitched seven impressive innings and Andy Dirks gave the Tigers a lift for a second straight night in Detroit's victory over Houston.
    White Sox 4, Twins 2
    At Minneapolis, Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo hit consecutive homers to back another strong start from Jake Peavy in Chicago's victory over Minnesota.
