UNDATED (AP) -- The Angels are hot and the Royals are not. In Kansas City the Angels beat the Royals 7-0 giving L.A. a seven-game winning streak. During the streak the Angels have dominated opponents, outscoring them by a combined 54-18. The slumping Royals have lost 15 of 19, including seven straight at home. They have scored three runs or fewer in 12 of those defeats.
-- In Toronto the Orioles won for the fourth time in five games with a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays. Danny Valencia hit a two-run homer and Adam Jones added a solo shot for the Orioles who beat R.A. Dickey. Baltimore leads the majors with 68 home runs this season, including nine in the past three games. Dickey, last year's National League Cy Young Award winner with the Mets, fell to 4-6 on the season. Freddy Garcia got the win, his first against two losses.
-- Pinch-hitter Mike Carp drove in the tying run with an eighth-inning double and then scored on a double by Dustin Pedroia (peh-DROY'-uh) as the Red Sox rallied for a 7-4 victory over Cleveland. The Red Sox scored four times off reliever Vinnie Pestano, who took over with Cleveland leading 4-3 in the eighth.
The lone interleague game of the day has the Marlins in Chicago facing the White Sox tonight.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Yankees have placed outfielder Curtis Granderson on the 15-day disabled list with a broken knuckle on his left pinky finger. He suffered the injury in Friday's game against the Rays when he was hit by a pitch from Cesar Ramos in the fifth inning. Manager Joe Girardi says Granderson could be out a minimum of four weeks.
TORONTO (AP) -- Right-hander Pedro Strop is on Baltimore's 15-day disabled list with a strained lower back. He was a key part of Baltimore's bullpen during last year's playoff season, when he went 5-2 with a 2.44 ERA in a career-high 70 games. Strop has struggled this year, going 0-2 with a 6.11 ERA in 22 games.
MEMPHIS (AP) -- Playing in front of their own fans the Memphis Grizzlies are looking tonight to get their first win against the Spurs in the NBA's Western Conference final. The Spurs won the first two games, played in San Antonio, 105-83 and 93-89. The second game took overtime to decide.
Being down 2-0 isn't new to the Grizzlies as they trailed the Clippers by that margin before roaring back to take the series in six games and advance against the Spurs.
The challenge now is tougher because no NBA team has won two series in the same postseason after trailing 0-2.
Game 4 in the series will be played Monday in Memphis.
UNDATED (AP) -- Both Boston and Detroit can advance to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a win today.
The Bruins-Rangers game is up first with Boston leading the New Yorkers 3-1 in their best of seven Eastern Conference semifinal. The Rangers kept their meager hopes alive with a 4-3 win in overtime Thursday night. Today's game is in Boston, and the Rangers have posted an early 1-0 lead.
The Pittsburgh Penguins await the winner of the Boston-New York series. The Penguins advanced to the Eastern final by eliminating Ottawa in five games with a 6-2 win last night.
The Red Wings are on the verge of eliminating the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago had a great regular season but faces elimination tonight with a loss on the home-ice. The Wings took a 3-1 series lead in their Western semifinal with a 2-0 win Thursday. After dropping the first game in Chicago, the Red Wings have won three straight.
PHOENIX (AP) -- The NHL has approved the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to a group of Canadian-led investors.
Two people familiar with the deal tell The Associated Press that the deal is contingent on the group reaching a lease agreement with the city of Glendale, Ariz. They said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, deputy commissioner Bill Daly and the prospective buyers will meet with Glendale officials on Tuesday for talks on a lease.
The NHL bought the Coyotes out of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in 2009 and has tried without success to find a buyer who would keep the team in Glendale.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Matt Kuchar (KOO'-char) has the lead after three rounds of the PGA's Colonial. He shot a 1-under-69 to finish 11-under par. Four players are in the clubhouses at 10-under. The group includes Chris Stroud, Matt Every, Boo Weekley and Graham DaLaet.
