  • ANAHEIM, Calif. — Josh Donaldson drove in Jed Lowrie with an 11th-inning double, and the Oakland Athletics overcame Mike Trout's tying homer in the ninth for a 10-9 victory against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.
    Lowrie led off the 11th with a single against Yoslan Herrera (0-1), the Angels' seventh pitcher. Donaldson hit a sharp grounder inside third base for the AL-leading A's, who have won four straight and eight of nine.
    Jim Johnson (2-2) pitched two innings for Oakland, getting Howie Kendrick on a groundout with Trout and Albert Pujols in scoring position to end it. Trout hit a two-run shot in the ninth for the Angels, who have lost three of four.
    Rangers 5, Mariners 0
    At Arlington, Texas, Prince Fielder and Kevin Kouzmanoff hit back-to-back homers, Robbie Ross limited Seattle to five singles in seven-plus innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Mariners.
    Fielder ended a 13-game homerless streak to start the season with his new team, hitting a line drive to right-center off former Texas first-round pick Blake Beavan (0-1) leading off the second inning. Two pitches later, Kouzmanoff went deep to left.
    White Sox 2, Red Sox 1
    At Chicago, Alexei Ramirez scored the winning run in the ninth inning on a two-out throwing error by Xander Bogaerts, and Chicago edged Boston on a frigid night.
    With the score tied at 1, Red Sox reliever Burke Badenhop (0-2) allowed a one-out single to Ramirez. After Tyler Flowers stuck out, Chris Capuano walked Adam Eaton. On a 3-2 count, Marcus Semien hit a grounder to Bogaerts, who one-hopped his throw to first baseman Mike Carp.
    National League
    Marlins 11, Nationals 2
    At Miami, Giancarlo Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs, including a three-run homer off Stephen Strasburg, and Miami broke an eight-game losing streak by beating Washington.
    Both benches and bullpens cleared briefly in the fourth inning when the Nationals' Ian Desmond and Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia engaged in a heated, nose-to-nose conversation at home plate.
    Desmond became annoyed when he barely avoided being hit by an inside pitch from Koehler. The confrontation didn't escalate.
