CLEVELAND - Brett Cecil took a perfect game into the seventh inning for the Toronto Blue Jays before settling for a 5-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

The left-hander allowed one hit over eight innings, striking out a career-high 10.

Cecil lost the perfect game when he walked Grady Sizemore with one out in the seventh. He then walked Choo Shin-soo but came back to strike out Austin Kearns before Jhonny Peralta lined a 2-2 pitch to left field, scoring Sizemore to get Cleveland within 4-1.

Kevin Gregg gave up a one-out single to Sizemore in the ninth. He walked Kearns with two outs, then fired a called third strike past Peralta on a full count to complete the two-hitter.

Jose Bautista’s two-run homer put Toronto ahead in the second.

Travis Snider hit his fourth of the year in the fourth and John Buck connected for his fourth in the eighth to make it 5-1.

Twins 10, Tigers 4

At Minneapolis, Wilson Ramos had three more hits in Joe Mauer’s place and Michael Cuddyer added a three-run homer as the Minnesota Twins snapped the Detroit Tigers’ five-game winning streak.

Ramos had two doubles and an RBI and Scott Baker allowed three runs and seven hits with six strikeouts in seven innings for the Twins.

Detroit starter Max Scherzer gave up 10 runs and eight hits with four walks in four and one-third innings.

Austin Jackson had three hits to raise his average to .377, but the Twins were up 7-0 after two innings against Scherzer, who has given up 18 hits and 16 runs in his last two starts against Minnesota.

Mauer missed his third straight game with a bruised left heel.

Ramos was called up to play against Cleveland on Sunday and became the first catcher in modern baseball history (since 1900) to collect four hits in his major league debut, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Red Sox 17, Angels 8

At Boston, Dustin Pedroia’s three-run homer capped the Red Sox’s seven-run sixth inning in a win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Bill Hall and Adrian Beltre each hit their first homers in a Red Sox uniform, both two-run shots, and Kevin Youkilis had a solo blast.

Boston snapped a three-game losing streak after getting swept by Baltimore over the weekend. Clay Buchholz gave up four runs and eight hits in five and two-thirds innings.

The Red Sox built a 5-0 lead with three runs in the second and two in the third off Joe Saunders. Mike Lowell went four for four with four RBI and three doubles for Boston, and J.D. Drew had four hits and drove in three runs.

Maicer Izturis hit a two-run double for Los Angeles.

Yankees 4, Orioles 1

At New York, CC Sabathia pitched eight strong innings and Randy Winn hit a three-run homer to lead the Yankees past the Baltimore Orioles.

Sabathia allowed one run - Matt Wieters’ second-inning homer - and six hits while improving to 11-1 in 16 career starts against Baltimore.

Alex Rodriguez singled and scored during a four-run fourth in his return to the lineup after a day off, but catcher Jorge Posada left after five innings with right calf tightness. The extent of the injury was unclear, but the Yankees announced he was to undergo an MRI on Monday night. AP
