Jeter, Yankees outslug Mets

Glavine again foiled in bid for 296th win

While the Mets and Yankees appear headed in opposite directions, Tom Glavine remains stuck on 295 wins.

Derek Jeter hit a go-ahead homer, Alex Rodriguez also homered and the New York Yankees roughed up Glavine en route to an 11-8 victory yesterday over the visiting Mets, who have lost 10 of their last 12.

"It was a big win for us," Jeter said. "You want to get back on the right track."

The Mets halted the Yankees' nine-game winning streak Friday with a 2-0 win over Roger Clemens.

Jeter finished with four hits and the Yankees got a big effort from their bullpen in winning for the 10th time in 11 tries.

Luis Vizcaino (3-1) replaced rookie Tyler Clippard in the fourth and pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings for the win.

Scott Proctor and Kyle Farnsworth held the Mets in check thereafter until Mariano Rivera surrendered two runs in the ninth, the first runs he's allowed in 10 appearances.

Making his fifth attempt at win No. 296, Glavine (5-5) failed to hold three early leads. He was tagged for seven runs and eight hits in four innings plus, his second consecutive poor outing.

Glavine has allowed 16 runs and 19 hits over 8 1/3 innings in his past two starts, against the Tigers and Yankees. He is 0-4 in five outings since beating the Yankees May 19 at Shea Stadium.

Phillies 6, Tigers 3 -- Soft-tossing Jamie Moyer outpitched a prospect half his age and Aaron Rowand homered and singled home the go-ahead run to lead Philadelphia past visiting Detroit.

Moyer (6-5) allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings to earn his 222d career win . The 44-year-old relied on slow stuff as usual, mixing a fastball in the low 80s with a variety of breaking pitches .

Rookie Andrew Miller (2-1) gave up four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits in six innings.

Padres 1, Cubs 0 -- Chicago's Carlos Zambrano lost his no-hit bid in the eighth. One inning later he lost the game when San Diego's Russell Branyan homered with one out.

Angels 3, Dodgers 0 -- Jered Weaver won his fifth consecutive decision and Reggie Willits and Howie Kendrick keyed a two-out, three-run rally with RBI singles in the fifth inning, helping the Angels win at Dodger Stadium.

Blue Jays 7, Nationals 3 -- Vernon Wells homered and drove in a season-high four runs, Shaun Marcum struck out a career-high 11 over seven innings and host Toronto throttled Washington.

Braves 6, Indians 2 -- Edgar Renteria went 5 for 5 with a homer and drove in two runs, spurring Atlanta at Cleveland.

Cardinals 15, Athletics 6 -- Juan Encarnacion doubled to extend his hitting streak to 16 games and drove in three runs, So Taguchi had three RBIs, and St. Louis bounced back from a rout a night earlier with a lopsided victory of its own in Oakland.

White Sox 6, Pirates 1 -- Mark Buehrle scattered nine hits over eight innings, Josh Fields hit a two-run homer and visiting Chicago beat Pittsburgh to snap a four-game losing streak.

Astros 9, Mariners 4 -- Craig Biggio hit a three-run homer to back Woody Williams's strong outing and host Houston beat Seattle.

Diamondbacks 8, Orioles 4 -- Scott Hairston hit the first of Arizona's three home runs off Daniel Cabrera, and visiting Arizona dealt Baltimore its seventh straight loss.

Reds 8, Rangers 4 -- Ken Griffey homered twice, snatching the spotlight from Sammy Sosa's quest for No. 600 and leading host Cincinnati to victory over Texas. David Ross also homered twice for Cincinnati .

Brewers 5, Twins 2 -- Dave Bush stopped a personal six-start winless streak, pitching visiting Milwaukee past Minnesota.

Marlins 9, Royals 8 -- Miguel Cabrera homered twice and drove in four runs and Miguel Olivo went 5 for 5 in another big night in Kansas City, leading Florida to victory.
