Braves 4, Yankees 0

ATLANTA — Rookie Tommy Hanson won his third straight start, Brian McCann had two RBIs including a solo homer and Atlanta threw consecutive shutouts for the first time in four years. New York managed just four hits and left 12 runners on base as Chien-Ming Wang (0-6) lost his sixth straight start.

Red Sox 11, Nationals 3

WASHINGTON — Jason Bay had four hits, including his 19th homer and a two-run single that helped break open the game in the eighth inning, and Jacoby Ellsbury’s had the first two-triple game of his career and two singles.

Manny Delcarmen (2-1) got the win in relief for the Red Sox, who have won 14 of 19 in June.

Tigers 5, Cubs 4

DETROIT — Pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lifting Detroit to the seesaw win.Brandon Inge’s two-run homer in the seventh put the Tigers ahead 3-2 and they were a strike away from taking the lead into the ninth, but Chicago’s Micah Hoffpauir hit a go-ahead, two-run shot in the eighth off Joel Zumaya. Carlos Marmol struck out the side in the eighth, setting up Kevin Gregg for a save opportunity. Gregg (2-2) got off to a poor start by walking Don Kelly on a full-count pitch. Raburn was hitting for Josh Anderson, who pinch ran for slumping slugger Magglio Ordonez. Brandon Lyon (3-3) got the victory after retiring one batter in the ninth, helping the AL Central-leading Tigers to their fifth straight win.

Blue Jays 7, Reds 5

TORONTO — Marco Scutaro hit a two-run homer and Scott Rolen and Rod Barajas added solo shots for Toronto. Pitching on three days’ rest, left-hander Brian Tallet (5-4) matched a season-high with seven strikeouts in six shutout innings. He allowed three hits and walked one. Jason Frasor closed it for his second save in four chances. The Reds (34-35) lost their third straight and fell below .500 for the first time since April 12, when they were 2-3. Scutaro chased Cincinnati starter Micah Owings in the sixth with a two-out drive that barely cleared the wall in left. The homer was Scutaro’s first since April 30.

Marlins 7, Orioles 6, 12 innings

Cantu lined a single to left and Luke Scott’s throw home beat Bonifacio but the ball came out of catcher Gregg Zaun’s glove on the tag. Ramirez hit his second career grand slam and Dan Uggla homered for Florida. Matt Wieters homered and added an RBI single for Baltimore.

Dodgers 5, White Sox 2

CHICAGO — Hiroki Kuroda allowed four hits in 8 2/3 innings and James Loney hit a two-run homer for Los Angeles.

Kuroda fanned nine and walked none in outpitching John Danks (5-6), who again received little support at U.S. Cellular Field. Chicago is last in the AL with 119 runs in home games and has scored two or fewer runs in six of Danks’ seven home starts. Danks allowed three runs and three hits — all in the first two innings — and retired 17 of the final 18 batters he faced over seven innings, but the White Sox lost for the ninth time in their last 12 home games.Orlando Hudson’s RBI double gave the Dodgers a first-inning lead and Loney’s fifth homer made it 3-0 in the second.

He allowed only singles by Luis Castillo in the third and pinch-hitter Jeremy Reed in the ninth.
