NEW YORK -- Justin Morneau hit a three-run homer, Torii Hunter also connected and the Minnesota Twins beat the New York Yankees 6-1 Saturday in a game called during the eighth inning because of rain.

Scott Baker (4-7) shut down New York's loaded lineup for the second time this season, pitching the Twins to only their second victory in their past 14 games at Yankee Stadium.

Minnesota, which began the day a half-game behind Chicago in the AL wild-card race, had lost four of five. But after scoring no more than three runs in their previous five games, the Twins outhit New York 10-2 and got effective work from a pair of relievers.

Right-hander Jeff Karstens (1-1) gave up only two runs and six hits in seven innings for the Yankees. Still, he was handed his first loss at any level since May 9 with Triple-A Columbus.

Jesse Crain got one out for his second major league save -- his first this season.

Blue Jays 5, Red Sox 1

BOSTON -- A.J. Burnett pitched a three-hitter and Lyle Overbay went 2-for-4 with two RBIs for the Blue Jays.

Aaron Hill homered and Frank Catalanotto also had two hits and an RBI for Toronto, which snapped a five-game losing streak. It was Boston's 13th loss in 17 games.

Burnett (7-6) held the Red Sox to one single until giving up a run and two hits in the seventh. He walked one and struck out five in picking up his fifth win in six starts. It was Burnett's 16th career complete game.

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz watched the game from the dugout, confident that wearing a heart monitor for a few days will hasten his return to the lineup. Ortiz has missed the last six games after experiencing heart palpitations for the second time in August.
