AL notables

* Indians outfielder Jody Gerut was carted off the field after injuring his right knee in the seventh inning against the Royals. He tripped and fell headfirst onto the warning track trying to field a ball. He will have an MRI today.

* Twins left fielder Shannon Stewart left the game after suffering bruised ribs in a nasty spill, tripping over the bullpen mound while chasing Larry Bigbie's fly ball and landing headfirst against the fence. He is day to day.

* Toronto's Carlos Delgado became the 14th player in major league history to hit 30 or more home runs in eight straight seasons.

* Blue Jays righthanded starter Miguel Batista will take over the closer's role for the final two weeks as a tryout for next year.

* Tampa Bay's Carl Crawford stole his 56th base in the first, surpassing the club record he set last year.

* The Royals' eighth-inning run snapped a 17-inning scoreless streak over 19 games by Cleveland righthander Matt Miller.

* Cleveland's Coco Crisp has at least two hits in six of his last eight games.
