ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brett Gardner got things started for the New York Yankees with a leadoff home run, then had three more hits after that.

Despite all that and Mark Teixeira's two-run homer in his return to the starting lineup, the Yankees sweated it out until the very end before Gardner caught a flyball near the warning track in left field with the bases loaded for a 12-11 victory at Texas and overcome a seven-RBI game by J.P. Arencibia on Tuesday night....

PHOENIX (AP) — Diana Taurasi scored 17 points to help the Phoenix Mercury cruise to their 16th straight win, 90-69 over the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday night.

The win gave Phoenix (22-3) the second-longest win streak in league history, passing Houston's 15-game streak in 1998 and moving two games shy of the WNBA mark of 18 straight by Los Angeles in 2001.

Candice Dupree had 16 points and nine rebounds while Brittney Griner added 14 points, seven...

HOUSTON (AP) — Brandon Moss was having a frustrating night before the ninth inning.

Mired in an 0-for-14 rut, Moss turned things around on one pitch.

He hit a go-ahead single during a six-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the Oakland Athletics to a 7-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

Josh Reddick homered for the AL West-leading A's and Yoenis Cespedes had three hits, including two doubles....

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kyle Gibson bounced back for a rocky start to shut down Kansas City, and the Minnesota Twins held on through a shaky ninth to beat James Shields and the Royals 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Gibson (9-8) allowed only a single by Alcides Escobar in the third inning and another by Nori Aoki in the sixth over seven dazzling innings. He was at his best toward the end, too, setting down the Royals in order in the seventh on four seemingly effortless pitches....

BALTIMORE (AP) — Manny Machado homered off Cory Rasmus leading off the 12th inning to give the Baltimore Orioles a 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Machado hit a 1-2 breaking ball from Rasmus (2-1) into the seats in left field to end the back-and-forth duel between AL contenders.

Ryan Webb (3-1) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the top of the 12th for the Orioles, who improved to 12-3 in extra innings....
