friDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Rangers 11, White Sox 5: Ian Kinsler raced around the bases for a bizarre inside-the-park homer and former Athletic Adam Rosales had a conventional two-run shot, helping Texas beat Chicago. The Rangers had five homers in all while winning for the 19th time in 23 games to move a season-high 22 games over .500.

Dodgers 2, Red Sox 0: Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of two-hit ball, Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer and Los Angeles opened a 10½-game lead in the N.L. West, its biggest margin since Sept. 28, 1977.

Rays 7, Yankees 2: Rookie Chris Archer beat New York for the third time, and Evan Longoria hit one of four Tampa Bay homers.

  • The Rays acquired veteran outfielder David DeJesus from Washington, just four days after the Nationals picked him up from the Chicago Cubs. Washington will receive a player or cash considerations.

    Angels 2, Mariners 0: Chris Nelson hit a two-run homer off Felix Hernandez to spoil the return of Seattle manager Eric Wedge, who returned to the dugout for the first time since he had a mild stroke a month ago.

    Tigers 6, Mets 1: Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer and Detroit tagged Daisuke Matsuzaka early in his return to the majors.
