Rangers rough up Yankees in 10-2 win
New York pitcher Jaret Wright left the game with a shoulder injury.
NEW YORK -- Chan Ho Park pitched impressively into the seventh inning, while oft-injured Jaret Wright walked off the mound with a shoulder injury Saturday during the Texas Rangers' 10-2 victory over the Yankees.
Wright (2-2), in his first season with the Yankees, is headed to the disabled list for the eighth time in his career, general manager Brian Cashman said. He tied career highs by allowing three home runs and 11 hits, and was trailing 6-1 with one out in the sixth when pain in his right shoulder, which he has had two operations on, forced him from the game.
Texas roughed up Wright and five relievers for 19 hits. Mark Teixeira hit a pair of two-run homers and David Dellucci and Kevin Mench also connected. Laynce Nix tied a career high with four hits.
Park (2-1) held the Yankees to three hits in 6 2/3 innings and working around five walks.

Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1
TORONTO -- Erik Bedard threw seven scoreless innings and Brian Roberts hit a leadoff homer in the Orioles' victory.
Bedard (1-1), from Nevan, Ontario, pitched one of the best games of his career while his parents watched from the stands. The 26-year-old left-hander scattered seven hits and matched a career high for innings pitched.
Roberts ended an 0-for-13 slump by leading off the first with his seventh home run, tying Chicago's Paul Konerko for the AL lead. It was his second leadoff homer this season and the third of his career.
David Bush (0-3) remained winless in four starts despite allowing just one run and five hits in eight innings. Vernon Wells homered for the Blue Jays, who have lost four straight and six of seven.

Devil Rays 6, Red Sox 5
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Travis Lee hit a go-ahead double in the sixth inning, rallying Tampa Bay past Boston.
Curt Schilling (1-2) blew a four-run lead in his third start of the season, giving up six runs, nine hits and striking out five in seven innings.
Lee gave the Devil Rays their first lead, at 6-5, with his two-run double on an 0-2 pitch from Schilling with two outs in the sixth.
Alex Gonzalez hit a two-run homer for Tampa Bay, which has won four of five. The wins have come in games started by Schilling, Randy Johnson, Kenny Rogers and Tim Wakefield.
David Ortiz had his 12th career multi-homer game for Boston. The Red Sox lost for just the third time in 10 games.
Ortiz hit a solo shot in the third and added a mammoth solo drive that traveled an estimated 455 feet in the fifth. It nearly reached the back wall behind the right-field stands.
Tampa Bay starter Doug Waechter allowed five runs and 10 hits in five innings. He was called up from Triple-A Durham on April 14 and was making his first start of the year after replacing Rob Bell in the rotation.
