Thome hit a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning that made him the 23rd player - and third this season - to reach 500 home runs.

The slugger drove a 3-2 pitch from reliever Dustin Moseley (4-3) to left-center, ending an 0-for-11 slump and reaching the milestone in style.

Seattle - Carlos Pena hit his 40th homer of the year.

Rangers 11, Athletics 9

Oakland, Calif. - Michael Young drove in a career-high seven runs, including a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning, and Texas beat Oakland in a game that featured a bench-clearing brawl.

Yankees 4, Red Sox 3

Boston - Mariano Rivera retired David Ortiz on a popup with the bases loaded for the final out, and Derek Jeter broke an eighth-inning tie with a three-run homer.
