Red Sox: Han­ley Ramirez hit a three-run walk-off home run with two out in the ninth to com­plete a five-run rally and give the Red Sox a 7-5 vic­tory over the Yan­kees.

Mike Sch­midt is next with 548.

Yan­kees: Newly signed DH Billy But­ler went 1-for-3 with two RBIs in his team de­but in a 7-5 loss to the Red Sox that put the Yanks two games out of a wild­card slot.

Tigers: Brian Dozier’s two-run sin­gle high­lighted a four-run sec­ond in­ning as the Twins han- ded the Tigers a cru­cial 5-1 loss. The Tigers split four games with the lowly Twins and fell 11⁄ games out of the sec­ond AL wild-card spot. Mike Pel­frey (410) lost in his first ap­pear­ance since July 31. He started the game with a 60-pitch limit but lasted only 36, giv­ing up four runs on five hits in 12⁄ in­nings.

Rays: Evan Lon­go­ria tied a ca­reer high with his 33rd home run and drove in five runs in the last-place Rays’ 7-6 vic­tory over the Ori­oles, who still hold the top AL wild-card spot.

Pi­rates: An­drew McCutchen home­red twice, Jordy Mercer hit a three-run shot and John Jaso and Sean Ro­driguez also went deep to help the Pi­rates split a four-game se­ries with the Phillies with a 15-2 vic­tory.

Blue Jays: Af­ter a three-game ab­sence with a lower-body in­jury, Josh Don­ald­son was back in the lineup against the Angels. He had an MRI on Wed­nes­day. ... RHP Marco Estrada has been pitch­ing with a her­ni­ated disk in his back, MLB Net­work said.

Twins: 3B Miguel Sano will miss the three-game se­ries against the Mets in New York to get his ail­ing back ex­am­ined. Sano left Mon­day’s game with lower-back tight­ness. He tried to swing in the cage Wed­nes­day but had pain. The Twins hope he can re­turn be­fore the end of the sea­son but won’t know un­til they see re­sults of his ex­am­i­na­tion.
