The Oakland A's pitcher carried a shutout into the ninth in the 6-3 victory. Alcides Escobar and Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler had RBIs in the ninth for all of the Kansas City scoring.
CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs were little match for baseball's best team, particularly with dominating stuff from Francisco Liriano.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have gotten five runs in the second - including a two-run homer from Jose Molina - to defeat the Chicago White Sox. Jeremy Hellickson won his fourth in a row in the 8-3 victory. It was Molina's second homer of the season.
