BOSTON (AP) — Derek Jeter has ended his 20-year run in the same way he completed his final at-bat in Yankee Stadium, with an RBI single. Jeter went 1-for-2 with a run-scoring hit in the third inning before coming out for a pinch-hitter in the Yankees' 9-5 victory at Boston. He received a standing ovation from Red Sox fans at Fenway Park as he left the field.

UNDATED (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NL Central crown when Pittsburgh was beaten 4-1 by Cincinnati. Reds ace Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) picked up his 20th victory and snapped a 1-1 tie with an RBI single in the eighth. Kristopher Negron added a two-run homer to support Cueto, who gave up a run and six hits in eight innings. Kolten Wong's sixth-inning grounder provided the only run in the Cardinals' 1-0 win at Arizona.

UNDATED (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have wrapped up the AL Central title with a 3-0 shutout of Minnesota. Ian Kinsler went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBIs to back David Price, who gave up four hits in 7 1/3 to a Twins team that scored 23 runs the previous two days. The Tigers' win puts the Royals in the wild-card game against Oakland.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Athletics took the second AL wild-card berth with a 4-0 win at Texas as Sonny Gray went the distance on a six-hitter for his second career shutout. Josh Reddick hit an RBI triple in the second, but the game remained close until Jed Lowrie's two-run single in the ninth.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann tossed the first no-hitter in Washington Nationals history. Zimmermann allowed only two baserunners and finished with 10 strikeouts, but the no-hitter hung in the balance until defensive replacement Steven Souza Jr. made a diving catch in left field for the final out.
