Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

New York 7, Kansas City 1: A.J. Bur­nett bounced back from a hor­ri­ble start cut short by a self-in­flicted in­jury to pitch five score­less in­nings, Robin­son Cano hit a three-run dou­ble and the Yan­kees beat the Roy­als in a game de­layed by a wicked thun­der­storm. New York’s Jorge Posada drove in his 1,000th ca­reer run with an RBI dou­ble in the first. He had an RBI sin­gle in the sev­enth. Bur­nett (8-8) was start­ing six days af­ter he cut both hands on a plas­tic line­up­card holder when he slammed open doors in the club­house out of frus­tra­tion.

Bal­ti­more 3, Min­nesota 2: Jeremy Guthrie al­lowed two runs in seven in­nings to earn his first win since May 25, Luke Scott home­red and the Ori­oles de­feated the Twins. Joe Mauer gave the Twins a 2-1 lead with a two-run homer in the sixth, but Scott an­swered with a two-run drive in the bot­tom half to give Bal­ti­more its sec­ond win in eight games since the All-Star break. Miguel Te­jada had two hits and scored twice for the Ori­oles, who are 3-50 when scor­ing fewer than four runs. Guthrie (4-10) was 0-6 in his last nine starts.

Toronto-Detroit post­poned: The game be­tween the Blue Jays and Tigers was post­poned due to rain. It will be made up Sun­day as part of a day-night dou­ble­header.
