Blue Jays: The loudest cheer of the night came when the Toronto Maple Leafs took a 3-2 lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The game's score was posted throughout the night on the scoreboard. Craig Grebeck committed two throwing errors. Alex Gonzalez has missed two games because of his sore right shoulder. A fan was carried out of the stands after being hit by a foul ball in the eighth.

Indians: Third baseman Travis Fryman was scratched before the game with the flu.

Rangers: Results from an MRI Sunday indicated pitcher Eric Gunderson has a partial thickness rotator cuff tear and a labrum tear in his left shoulder. He has been on the DL since May 8 and will be sidelined an additional three to six weeks.

Red Sox: John Valentin did not start because of a sore right knee. He left for a pinch runner after his single in the ninth.
