BALTIMORE (AP) Matt Wieters led off the 10th inning with a home run off Stolmy Pimentel to give the Baltimore Orioles a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates and a doubleheader sweep Thursday night.
The single-admission doubleheader followed consecutive rainouts on Tuesday and Wednesday. The rain lingered long enough to delay the fifth inning of the opener by 21 minutes, and the start of the nightcap was stalled 46 minutes by rain.
The second game marked the season debut of Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, who had left knee surgery in October. After sitting out the opener, Machado received a warm ovation from the crowd of 28,290 before the second game and went 0 for 5.
NEW YORK (AP) - Robinson Cano doubled and drove in two runs, Roenis Elias struck out 10 in seven impressive innings and Seattle beat New York.
Michael Saunders had three hits, including an RBI double, to help the Mariners win for the fifth time in six games following an eight-game skid. Seattle won both games in a rain-shortened series that marked Cano's return to New York after signing a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners during the offseason.
The All-Star second baseman was booed again and finished the series 2 for 9 with three RBIs.
Seattle has won four straight at Yankee Stadium dating to last season.
Escobar crushed the second pitch from Uehara (0-1) over the Green Monster in left field for his second homer of the year, and Grant Balfour recorded the final three outs for his second save of the day and sixth of the season.
Jake McGee (2-0) earned the win with one inning of scoreless relief.
Buehrle (5-1) worked through plenty of trouble to last 6 2-3 innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and a pair of walks. It was a solid bounce-back performance after the left-hander was hammered for seven runs last Friday night against Boston.
Aaron Loup pitched 2 1-3 shutout innings for his third career save.
DODGERS 9, TWINS 4, Game 1; DODGERS 4, TWINS 3
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Scott Van Slyke and Drew Butera homered in the 12th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Minnesota Twins to earn a sweep of the day-night doubleheader on Thursday night.
Adrian Gonzalez also homered for the Dodgers, who stranded 16 runners in the 5 hour, 11-minute game.
Yasiel Puig tied a career high with four hits in Los Angeles' Game 1 win and added two more in the nightcap. Before grounding out in the fifth, Puig had reached base in nine consecutive plate appearances.
Joe Mauer had three hits for the Twins, who walked 12 in the second game and 18 in both games.
Van Slyke led off the 12th and lined a 2-1 pitch from Brian Duensing (0-1) into the bullpen in left-center field. Butera hit his first homer since July 12, 2012, two batters later.
Jamey Wright (2-1) didn't allow a run in three innings of relief.
Kenley Jansen loaded the bases in the 12th and allowed a Mauer sacrifice fly, but got Chris Colabello to line out to first for his 11th save in 13 chances.
