EditorsNote: Update 4 Game roundup: Reimold's double lifts Jays
Detroit Tigers in front of a sellout crowd of 45,927 at Rogers Centre on Saturday.
Third baseman Danny Valencia led off the inning with a single before Reimold played the role of hero and gapped a double off right-hander Joba Chamberlain (1-5) into left-center field to send the ninth sellout crowd of the season into a frenzy.
Tigers closer Joe Nathan blew his sixth save of the season and wasted a dominant performance from right-hander Max Scherzer.
Shortstop Jose Reyes began the ninth with a leadoff single, and stole his team-leading 22nd base to get into scoring position, and later came around to score on a run-scoring single from catcher Dioner Navarro, which tied the game, 2-2.
After walking designated hitter Colby Rasmus to load the bases, Nathan was removed for right-hander Joakim Soria, who bailed the Tigers out of the mess by retiring the next two batters to force extra innings.
Indians 3, Yankees 0
NEW YORK -- Corey Kluber struck out 10 in six outstanding innings and Cleveland snapped a four-game losing streak.
Rookie shortstop Jose Ramirez had three hits, including a two-run home run, the first in his career. Designated hitter Michael Brantley added his 17th home run as the Indians snapped a seven-game losing streak in New York.
Kluber (13-6) allowed four hits and posted his career-high sixth straight victory. He held the Yankees hitless into the fourth and struck out every Yankee except for shortstop Derek Jeter and outfielder Ichiro Suzuki at least once.
Kluber also gave up Jeter's 3,431th hit, an infield single on a slow roller to third base that moved the Yankees captain past Hall of Famer Honus Wagner into sole possession of sixth place on the all-time list.
Mets 2, Phillies 1 (11 innings)
PHILADELPHIA -- Lucas Duda singled home the go-ahead run in the 11th inning for New York.
Dana Eveland posted the victory by working a scoreless inning in relief for the Mets, who won for the fifth straight time at Citizens Bank Park and for the 11th time in their last 12 games in Philadelphia. The Mets have won nine of their last 11 against the Phillies.
The Phillies had tied it at 1-1 on a solo homer by catcher Carlos Ruiz in the seventh.
Royals 5, Giants 0
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- James Shields threw a four-hit shutout in Kansas City's sixth straight victory.
Shields (11-6) has logged nine career shutouts.
