HOUSTON (AP) - Joe Mauer had two hits in his return from the disabled list, including a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning, to help the Minnesota Twins to a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
 
     A pair of walks by Josh Fields left runners at first and second with two outs in the ninth when Mauer hit a groundball single to left field scored Jordan Schafer. Brian Dozier also scored on the play and Mauer reached second when rookie left fielder Domingo Santana held the ball for several seconds before throwing it in.
 
     Mauer, who doubled in the third inning, extended his hitting streak to 13 games in his first game since missing 34 with a strained muscle on his right side.
 
     Brian Duensing got the last two outs of the eighth inning for the win and Glen Perkins pitched a scoreless ninth for his 29th save.

UNDATED (AP) - There's a new leader in the American League Central, just over a week after the Detroit Tigers enjoyed a five-game edge over Kansas City.
 
     The Royals moved a half-game ahead of Detroit with a 3-2 win against Oakland and some help from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
 
     The A's saw their lead in the AL West trimmed to 3  1/2 games over the Los Angeles Angels.
 
     The Tigers had more to worry about than their 11-6 loss in Pittsburgh. Detroit starter Justin Verlander surrendered five runs in the first inning before leaving with a sore right shoulder. The Tigers say Verlander will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
 
     The Brewers were 3-1 winners against the Cubs in Chicago as yoh-VAH'-nee gy-AHR'-doh gave up just a run and six hits in seven innings.
 
     The Los Angeles Dodgers have padded their lead in the National League West.  Kevin koh-RAY'-uh was a winner in his first start with the Dodgers, allowing a run and four hits in six innings of a 6-2 victory in Atlanta.
 
     Baltimore crushed the New York Yankees 11-3 but lost Manny Machado in the process as the third baseman sprained his knee while swinging at a pitch in the third inning.
 
     Seattle improved its playoff hopes while dropping Toronto six games off the AL East lead as the Mariners beat the Blue Jays 11-1.
 
     - Tampa Bay clobbered Texas 7-0 as Rays newcomer Drew Smyly allowed three hits while striking out nine over 7 2/3 innings.
 
     - Anthony Recker was in an 0-for-18 slump before smacking a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning of the Mets' 5-3 comeback win over the Phillies in Philadelphia.
 
     - yahn-JUR'-vihs soh-LAHR'-tay socked a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh to lift San Diego past Colorado 4-3.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals have acquired outfielder Josh Willingham from the Twins for minor league pitcher Jason Adam in an attempt to bolster their offense for the stretch run.
 
     The move was made shortly before the Royals, winners of seven straight, opened a four-game series against AL West-leading Oakland on Monday night. Kansas City had climbed into the second wild-card spot and was just a half-game behind Detroit in the AL Central entering the day.
 
     Willingham was hitting just .210 for the Twins this season, but his 12 homers in limited at-bats were appealing for a Royals club that has struggled to find power.
 
     He hit a career-best 35 homers with 110 RBIs two years ago.
 
     Adam is 5-9 with a 4.67 ERA with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha this season.
