Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: New York Comeback Falls Short In 10-7 Loss

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays, 10-7, on Sunday at the Rogers Centre. The Yankees took two games out of the three-game set.

After an RBI single in the first inning by David Cooper, Toronto plated six runs in the fourth inning to build a 7-0 lead. Casey McGehee hit an RBI double in the fifth inning to put a run across for New York. Rajai Davis drove in three runs on a double in the bottom of the inning. A Derek Jeter solo homer and a two-run shot by Robinson Cano got the Yankees three runs in the sixth inning. RBI doubles by Jeter and Jayson Nix along with a Nick Swisher RBI single in the seventh inning added three more runs, but 10-7 was as close as the Yankees would get.

Phil Hughes (11-10, 4.44 ERA) started for the Yankees but was chased after four innings, giving up nine hits, seven earned runs and a walk. Ryota Igarashi gave up the other three earned runs for the Yankees on three hits in two innings of work. J.A.
