Yoenis Cespedes spent the past two days rekindling old friendships and getting comfortable in the ballpark he called home for the first two-plus seasons of his big league career. Then the Detroit slugger did what he had done numerous times before at the Coliseum, only this time in a different uniform. Cespedes homered with two outs in the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie against his former team and six Detroit pitchers combined on an six-hitter to lead the Tigers to a 3-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday.

Hamilton returned from shoulder surgery on Monday and is 1 for 11 in his first three games, all in Cleveland.

Mark Teixeira homered and drove in four runs, Adam Warren pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 Tuesday night to send the AL champions to their first three-game skid this season. The only other hit he allowed was Paulo Orlando’s first major league homer in the sixth. Teixeira was the only Yankees’ starter without a hit during their 14-1 rout of Kansas City on Monday, which stopped a six-game losing streak.

The Toronto Blue Jays had little trouble finding offense in their series-opening win against the Chicago White Sox, and may need a similar effort Tuesday night with the inconsistent R.A. Dickey on the mound. Fresh off their first back-to-back victories in nearly three weeks, the Blue Jays try to match their longest win streak of the season against a White Sox team that has dropped six of seven. Toronto (21-26) scored four runs in the first inning Monday en route to a 6-0 victory for its first win streak since May 6-9.

The Washington Nationals have won five straight starts by Jordan Zimmermann, who will need to end his Wrigley Field hex to continue that streak.

Zimmermann is 1-4 with a 4.81 ERA in seven overall starts against the Cubs.

During a 20-batter stretch in Sunday’s victory at Detroit, every hitter for the Houston Astros either reached base or struck out. The Astros beat the Tigers 10-8 in that game, striking out 15 times but also hitting a pair of home runs and rallying from a four-run deficit in the sixth inning. Houston now leads its division by 6 1/2 games and has the second-best record in the American League – but to say the Astros have an unusual offense would be an understatement.

Bernie Williams stood in front of the pitcher’s mound, flanked by Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada, all clothed in finely tailored business suits rather than the pinstriped baseball uniforms in which they earned fame and fortune. The fab five appeared together in public for the first time Sunday night as formers – former teammates, former All-Stars, former champions – to celebrate the retirement of Williams’ No. 51 and the unveiling of a Monument Park plaque in his honor. ”I miss the game, and I wish I could be playing now,” said the 46-year-old Williams, who took his last swings in 2006.

Among the unexpected stories of this season, few have been more surprising than the inconsistencies of the Washington Nationals’ starting rotation. Following yet another poor outing, the Nationals will turn to Gio Gonzalez on Sunday afternoon to face the Philadelphia Phillies and Aaron Harang. Washington (25-18) has enjoyed steady performances from starters Max Scherzer and Jordan Zimmermann, who’ve combined for a 2.31 ERA, but the remainder of the staff has failed to meet expectations.
