NEW YORK — Pitcher Matt Albers doubled leading off the 13th inning for his first hit since 2007 and scored the tie-breaking run, his first major league run, as the Chicago White Sox rallied past the New York Mets 2-1 on Wednesday, helped by Todd Frazier’s major league-leading 17th homer.

Albers (2-4) relieved White Sox closer David Robertson to start the 12th and led off the 13th in his first at-bat since 2009. With the outfield playing shallow, he lined a 1-2 pitch from Logan Verrett (3-3) to left-center, and the ball made its way to the fence on two hops.

A 33-year-old right-hander who has spent most of his career in the American League, Albers had been 2 for 34 (.059) in his career. He chugged to third on a wild pitch and scored standing up on Jose Abreu’s sacrifice fly.


TIGERS 3, ANGELS 0: Michael Fulmer took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and completed 72/3 dominant innings to lift Detroit at Anaheim, California.

The rookie right-hander did not allow a hit until C.J. Cron’s broken-bat single on a 98 mph fastball with two outs in the seventh.

Fulmer allowed two hits, struck out eight and walked two.

BLUE JAYS 7, YANKEES 0: Aaron Sanchez pitched 62/3 innings to win his fourth straight decision, Edwin Encarnacion had two RBI and Toronto completed a three-game sweep at home.

INDIANS 5, RANGERS 4: Yan Gomes’ single scored Lonnie Chisenhall in the 11th inning to send Cleveland past visiting Texas.

Alex Claudio (1-1) gave up Chisenhall’s double over third base to start the inning. Gomes fouled off a bunt attempt on the first pitch, before bouncing his hit up the middle.
