Kelly records milestone win



MINNEAPOLIS -- Tom Kelly became the 46th manager to win 1,000 games as the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 4-0 on Sunday behind a five-hitter from Joe Mays.

Kelly has managed the Twins since Sept. 12, 1986 -- the longest current tenure in the four major professional sports -- and has won two World Series titles in Minnesota. Kelly, the sixth active manager with 1,000 wins, has also lost 1,092 games.

ORIOLES 7, YANKEES 6:

In New York, Albert Belle hit a two-out, two-run single in a three-run ninth off Mariano Rivera as Baltimore overcame Scott Brosius' eighth-inning grand slam to beat the Yankees and snap a four-game skid.

Brosius connected off Mike Trombley in the bottom half for his second career slam, his first since 1994, and the Yankees appeared set to extend their winning streak to seven before rallying off the normally unhittable Mariano Rivera (2-1), who had converted 11 of his first 12 save opportunities.

INDIANS 10, BLUE JAYS 8:

In Toronto, Travis Fryman hit an RBI single in the 12th inning as Cleveland overcame a six-run deficit.

The Indians, who trailed 6-0, tied the game with two runs in the ninth inning before winning it in the 12th. Cleveland's David Justice went 3-for-5 with five RBI, including an RBI double off Billy Koch in the ninth inning that helped Cleveland tie it.

ROYALS 12, WHITE SOX 8:

In Kansas City, Carlos Beltran's three-run double keyed a five-run eighth as the Royals completed a three-game sweep.

Former Braves prospect Jermaine Dye hit his 13th home run as the Royals completed an 8-3 homestand. Johnny Damon's single marked the 10th straight game in which he's led off with a hit for Kansas City.

A'S 7, RANGERS 6:

In Arlington, Texas, Jeremy Giambi had three hits and drove in three runs and Oakland held off the Rangers to salvage the wrapup of a wild series.

Texas won 17-16 Friday night and came back for an 11-10 victory Saturday night. The teams combined for 67 runs and 88 hits in the three-game set.

RED SOX 9, DEVIL RAYS 7:

In Boston, Troy O'Leary and Trot Nixon homered in the third inning, and Carl Everett hit his 10th homer of the season to support Jeff Fassero and give the Red Sox a victory over Tampa Bay.
