Byrd blanks Twins; Cards tie MLB record

American League NY Yankees 5 Toronto 4 - The Yanks didn't gain any ground in the wild card race, though they are just 1/2 game behind Detroit, but they managed to pick up a game on Boston in the AL East and now trail the Red Sox by just 6 games. Cleveland 4 Minnesota 0 - The Indians maintained their slim 1-game lead in the AL Central, taking advantage of a complete game 4-hit shutout by Paul Byrd (10-4). It was Byrd's first shutout and complete game of 2007. Tampa Bay 4 Detroit 6 - Carlos Guillen (right)singled, doubled and tripled and drove in 2 runs to help Detroit snap a five-game losing streak and remain just a half game behind Cleveland in the Al Central. Guillen has been a key element to Detroit's success, batting behind slugger Magglio Ordonez in the lineup. He's batting .315 with 14 home runs and 74 RBI. Boston 2 LA Angels 4 - Curt Schilling came back from the disabled list but couldn't get anyone out in the 7th as the Angels scored twice to break a 2-2 tie. The win gave the Angels a 4-game lead over idle Seattle. Other AL Scores Oakland 9 Texas 7, 13 innings National League Chi Cubs 1 Houston 2, 10 innings - Playing without Alfonso Soriano (right), who was injured trying to go from first to third in Sunday's game, the Cubs could muster only 4 hits against Houston starter Wandy Rodriguez and eventually lost the game in the 10th inning when Eric Munson singled home Ty Wigginton. The Cubs could have caught Milwaukee for first place in the NL Central, and without their star - who is expected to be out 4-6 weeks - that task becomes much more difficult. Milwaukee 2 Colorado 6 - With the Cubs breathing down their necks, the Brewers will have to do better than this. Matt Holliday hit his 21st home run - a 2-run shot - and Brad Hawpe slugged a 3-run shot - his 19th - to keep Colorado close in the NL West.

The Rockies are 5 games out in the division and 3 behind San Diego, currently the wild card leader. San Diego 5 St. Louis 10 - Scott Rolen socked a 3-run homer in the middle of St. Louis' big 5th inning, becoming part of major league baseball history. The Cardinals banged out 10 straight hits, tying an MLB record, and scored 10 runs, 7 of them off starter David Wells. The Cards are still alive - though barely - in the NL Central, 7 games behind the Brewers. Other NL Scores Washington 2 San Francisco 3, 11 innings
