C.J. Cron went 2-for-4 with two RBIs to help lead the Los Angeles Angels past Seattle.

White Sox 2, Indians 1

Gordon Beckham's fifth-inning solo home run gave the Chicago White Sox the winning margin in a victory over the Cleveland Indians that did not end until early on Wednesday morning.

The threat of rain forced a 41-minute delay at the start and a downpour prompted a one-hour, 58-minute stoppage after three innings. The game finally ended shortly before 1 a.m.

The win was the second in a row for the White Sox, while the Indians dropped their third straight game.

Tigers 6, A's 5

Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter hit solo home runs, and the Detroit Tigers snapped their three-game losing streak with a come-from-behind victory over the Oakland A's.

Catcher John Jaso hit a two-run homer for the A's, who beat the Tigers 10-0 on Monday in the opener of the four-game series.

Dodgers 6, Reds 3

Center fielder Andre Ethier homered and drove in four runs, sparking the Los Angeles Dodgers to a victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Giants 4, Cubs 0

Tim Hudson maintained his excellent home form with seven innings of shutout ball, pitching the San Francisco Giants to a victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Angel Pagan scored after each of two singles, catcher Buster Posey hit two sacrifice flies, and Giants (33-19) third baseman Pablo Sandoval drove in a run for a seventh consecutive game to support Hudson (5-2) and even the three-game series at 1-1.

Padres 4, Diamondbacks 3

Tommy Medica hit a tie-breaking solo home run with two outs in the eighth-inning and right-hander Huston Street remained perfect in save opportunities this season as the San Diego Padres (24-29) edged the Diamondbacks.

The first baseman lined his second homer of the season into the first row of the left field seats, the first earned run allowed by Arizona right-hander Evan Marshall (2-1) in 9 2/3 innings since being promoted from Triple-A Reno three weeks ago. (Compiled by Jahmal Corner; Editing by John O'Brien)
