Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: New York keeps pace with 9-6 win

It didn't come easy, but the New York Yankees were able to avoid losing another game in the AL East race by beating the Toronto Blue Jays, 9-6.

After five innings, the Yanks had fallen behind 5-1, but the offense would wake from their slumber by scoring three runs in the seventh, two in the eighth and two more in the ninth.

Phil Hughes struggled in his start, going just 4⅔ innings and allowing five runs on eight hits. Derek Lowe came out of the bullpen to halt the bleeding, pitching 1⅔ clean innings to help the Yankees get control back.

Leading the offensive assault for the Yankess were Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano. Both went 3-for-5 with an RBI. Alex Rodriguez and Raul Ibanez each came through with two hits a piece to assist the cause.

With the Orioles defeating the Red Sox this afternoon, the Yankees remain tied with the O's for first place in the AL East.
