By jcfortun Published: July 27, 2009

INDIANS 12, MARINERS 3 -- Travis Hafner, Jhonny Peralta, Grady Sizemore and Ben Francisco all hit home runs, Peralta's of the grand slam variety, and Cliff Lee pitched seven strong innings to finish the three-game sweep of the Mariners.

TWINS 10, ANGELS 2 -- Twins first baseman Justin Morneau hit two home runs and right fielder Denard Span drove in four runs out of his lead off spot as the Twins routed the Angels. The Twins will begin a three-game set with the White Sox tonight at the Metrodome.

WHITE SOX 5, TIGERS 1 -- A four-run first inning, which included a two-run home run by Paul Konerko, was all the support Chicago starting pitcherClayton Richard would need. the left-hander scattered five hits and struck out three over eight innings to get the win. The Tigers begin a three game set in Texas tonight before heading to Cleveland for a weekend series with the Indians.

RANGERS 7, ROYALS 2 -- Royals starter Sidney Ponson threw six innings of scoreless baseball, but the Kansas City bullpen, and the defense behind it, couldn't earn the victory.

He finished the game 3-4 with two RBI. The Royals will play four in Baltimore beginning tonight.
