Yankees Slip by Sox; Zambrano Boosts Cubs

American League NY Yankees 8 Boston 7 - New York scored 6 times in the 8th inning, Luis Vizcaino worked a perfect 8th and Mariano Rivera held the Sox scoreless in the 9th for his 27th save as the Yankees took the first of a crucial 3-game series in Boston, drawing to within 4 1/2 games of the Red Sox for the AL East lead. Johnny Damon victimized his old teammates, going 4-4, though only scoring once. Alex Rodriguez capped the comeback, driving in Bobby Abreu with the lead run with a single, his only hit of the game. A-Rod has 141 RBI, which leads the majors. Texas 9 Oakland 11 - Sammy Sosa (right) slugged his 20th home run of the season and drove in 5 runs in a losing effort for the Rangers. Sosa, after sitting out all of 2006, has rebounded with a solid season, driving in 88 runs in 108 games. Other AL Scores Kansas City 4 Cleveland 5 - Indians magic number is 10 Baltimore 6 Toronto 2 Detroit 4 Minnesota 2 LA Angels 3 Chi White Sox 5 - J. Thome, 0-4, needs 1 HR for 500 Tampa Bay 1 Seattle 2 National League Chi Cubs 5 St. Louis 3 - The Chicago Cubs handed the Cardinals their 8th straight loss and took a 1 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee in the NL Central as Carlos Zambrano (right) hurled 8 solid innings, allowing just 4 hits. The only run off Zambrano was Albert Pujols' 31st homer of the season, which tied the game, but the Cubs came back with a run in the 7th and 3 in the 9th. Zambrano improved to 16-12. Cincinnati 6 Milwaukee 5 - Prince Fielder hit his league-leading 45th home run, and Cincy's Adam Dunn socked his 39th as the Reds climbed to within 2 games of third place in the NL Central division, spoiling the hopes of the Brewers, who failed to keep pace with Chicago. Philadelphia 3 NY Mets 2, 10 innings - The Phillies probably won't catch the Mets in the division, but they kept their playoff hopes alive with an extra-inning triumph at Shea.

Greg Dobbs' sac fly drove home Jayson Werth with the game-winner, and the Phillies remained 1 1/2 games back of the Padres, who lead the wild card standings. Arizona 4 LA Dodgers 7 - Likewise in the West, the Dodgers are 4 1/2 behind Arizona, but stayed 1 1/2 behind San Diego in the wild card race. LA scored 4 times in the 4th inning to erase a 4-2 Arizona lead and help Brad Penny, who allowed 3 earned runs over 5 innings, improve to 16-4. The Dodger bullpen did its job, blanking Arizona the rest of the way, with Takashi Saito picking up his 39th save with a scoreless 9th. San Francisco 4 San Diego 5, 10 innings - Khalil Green's solo homer in the 10th gave San Diego a much-needed win, keeping them in the wild card lead and closing to within 3 games of Arizona in the West. Other NL Scores Pittsburgh 4 Houston 3 Florida 7 Colorado 6 - M. Holliday HR (31), 120 RBI leads NL Atlanta 8 Washington 5, 13 innings
