AL notables

* Yankee Alex Rodriguez was hit by a pitch in the sixth, extending his streak of reaching base safely to a career-best 38 games.

* The WNBA champion Detroit Shock were honored before the Orioles-Tigers game at Comerica Park, with guard Deanna Nolan throwing out the first pitch.

* Texas's Kenny Rogers has won four straight against Toronto.

* Cleveland's Ben Broussard snapped an 0-for-27 spell with a single off the glove of diving third baseman Eric Chavez in the seventh.

* Raul Mondesi made his Angels' debut as DH and went 0 for 2 with a walk.

* When Lew Ford's home run disappeared over the left-field fence at Kauffman Stadium, so did Desi Relaford's glove. It got caught on the top of the fence and slipped off as he jumped to make the catch. Play was halted a few minutes while a fan descended the steep, grassy slope to pick the glove up and toss it down to Relaford.

* The Twins' Michael Cuddyer had reached in eight consecutive plate appearances when he was retired on a fine running catch in right by Matt Stairs in the first.

* Kansas City's Scott Sullivan struck out the first five batters he faced, all swinging.
