Best of MLB: Orioles Rally to Hand Royals 5th Straight Defeat

BALTIMORE -- Mark Trumbo and Matt Wieters hit solo homers in the seventh inning to back a sparkling pitching performance by Mike Wright, and Baltimore Orioles beat Kansas City 4-1 Monday night to extend the Royals' losing streak to five games.

Trumbo led off the bottom half with his 19th home run, and Wieters connected with one out to chase Duffy (1-1). Adam Jones capped the uprising with an RBI double (see full recap).

Fulmer, Tigers dismantle Blue Jays
DETROIT -- Michael Fulmer allowed two hits over six innings in another outstanding performance, and Justin Upton and James McCann homered to lift the Detroit Tigers to an 11-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.

Fulmer (6-1) struck out five and walked three in his third straight start without allowing a run. Detroit has won four in a row.

Detroit acquired Fulmer last year in the trade that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the New York Mets. The rookie right-hander has won four straight starts, allowing only one run over that span.

J.A. Happ (6-3) allowed six runs and six hits in five innings. McCann's three-run homer opened the scoring in the second, and Upton added a two-run shot in the third (see full recap).

Beltran's go-ahead homer lifts Yankees to win
NEW YORK -- Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning, Aroldis Chapman quickly returned to form and the New York Yankees rallied past the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 Monday night.

The Yankees returned from a 4-6 road trip by beating the Angels for the sixth straight time at home.

Beltran was the first batter Jose Alvarez faced after relieving starter Matt Shoemaker. Two-out singles by Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner prompted the Angels to go to their bullpen, and Beltran struck for his 14th homer.

Andrew Miller (3-0) struck out Kole Calhoun, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in order in the eighth. Chapman, who blew a save chance for the first time this season Sunday in Baltimore, pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save (see full recap).
