7-29-09 Morning highlights

By jcfortun Published: July 29, 2009

INDIANS 6, ANGELS 7 -- The Indians loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the ninth to force Angels closer Brian Fuentes out of the game, but reliever Jason Bulger saved the day. Bulger got Indians catcher Victor Martinez to ground into a double play before getting Jhonny Peralta to ground out to end the game and preserve the win. The hot-hitting Peralta had homered earlier in the game, as did Ben Francisco. Indians pitcher Aaron Laffey and Angels starter John Lackey will take the mound in the series finale at 3:35 p.m. this afternoon. BOX SCORE

ELSEWHERE IN THE AL CENTRAL:

TWINS 5, WHITE SOX 3 -- How would White Sox starter Mark Buehrle respond in his first start since throwing a perfect game? By taking another perfect game into the sixth inning Wednesday. Buerhle set a new major league record by retiring 45 straight batters. After retiring the first two batters in the inning, Buehrle walked Alex Casilla to end the perfect game. The next hitter, Denard Span, singled to end the no-hitter; and the next batter Joe Maurer ended the shutout with a ground rule double. Buehrle allowed four runs in the seventh to take the loss. BOX SCORE

ROYALS 4, ORIOLES 3 -- An 11th inning single by John Buck, coupled with a throwing error by Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis, allowed Mark Teahen to score the game winning run. Kansas City first baseman Billy Butler and Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones each hit a two-run home run. BOX SCORE

RANGERS 7, TIGERS 3 -- Texas second baseman Ian Kinsler tripled and drove in three as the Rangers lineup was too much for Detroit to take. Detroit catcher Dusty Ryan drove in two runs with a second inning single. BOX SCORE
