Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: New York Wins 6-0 In Rain-Shortened Game

The New York Yankees won a rain-shortened game, 6-0, on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. The game was initially delayed 51 minutes by lightning. The game was called after a 58-minute rain delay before the Yankees came to bat in the seventh inning. With the victory, the Yankees took all three games of the three-game set.

The Yankees did the majority of the damage in the first inning, scoring four runs. Nick Swisher had an RBI single, Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer, and Andruw Jones hit an RBI single in the inning. The Yanks added one more run in the fourth and sixth innings. DeWayne Wise hit a ground rule double in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth.

The Yankees have now scored three or more runs in 42 straight games, according to YES.

"If you rely on one or two guys to carry your team you're not going to be able to score runs like that consistently," said Teixeira. "One through nine we can get the job done."

Hiroki Kuroda picked up his ninth win of 2012 by pitching seven innings and allowing just four hits while striking out five batters. Ricky Romero pitched all six innings that were completed for the Blue Jays, giving up 12 hits and six earned runs.

Robinson Cano's double in the first inning extended his hitting streak to 21 games.

The Yankees (57-34) will start their next series on July 19 against the Oakland Athletics (46-44) at the O.co Coliseum.

Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: CC Sabathia Pitches Six Shutout Innings In 6-1 Win

CC Sabathia (10-3) pitched six shutout innings in his return to the mound as the New York Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1, on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. Sabathia gave up just four hits and one walk while striking out six in his first start back after going on the disabled list with a groin injury.

Robinson Cano extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a single in the second inning. He scored on a three-run Andruw Jones home run that gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead. The homer was Jones' 12th of the season.

Blue Jays starter Brett Cecil (2-2) finished his night after six innings, giving up six hits and two walks while striking out five.

Cecil was relieved by Sam Dyson, who was promptly torched by the Yankees for three more runs in the seventh inning. Chris Stewart and Derek Jeter both hit RBI doubles, and Alex Rodriguez hit into a fielder's choice to second for another run before Dyson left the mound after recording just one out.

Rafael Soriano got the Yankees out of a jam in the ninth inning to record his 24th save on the year. Clay Rapada and Chad Qualls loaded the bases with just one out, but Soriano was able to get J.P. Arencibia to hit into a double play to end the game.

Game 3 of the three-game series is set for 1:05 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Hiroki Kuroda (8-7, 3.67 ERA) will take on the Blue Jays' Ricky Romero (8-5, 5.03).

Jose Bautista Injury: Wrist Inflammation Forces Blue Jays' Slugger To DL

The odds of New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia tossing a gem in his first start back from the disable list got a bit better Tuesday, as Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was placed on the disable list with wrist inflammation. Bautista suffered the injury during Toronto's 6-3 loss to the Yankees on Monday, when he injured his it during an eighth-inning swing.

According FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, is reporting minor leaguer Anthony Gose will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Bautista, who didn't break his wrist but will be out for at least two weeks. So far this season, Bautista has smashed 27 home runs and collected 65 RBI.

Meanwhile, Sabathia is making his first start since June 24, when he started against the New York Mets and left with a left groin strain.

Yankees (55-34) Vs. Blue Jays (45-45) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

While the New York Yankees continue to win and search for possible outfield depth via trades, the Bronx Bombers get a well welcomed return Tuesday when ace C.C. Sabathia comes off the disable list and starts against the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium (7:05 p.m. ET on MY9).

Yankees Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Raul Ibanez Grand Slam Lifts New York, 6-3, Over Toronto

Raul Ibanez hit his 10th career grand slam in the eighth inning Monday night to lift the New York Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees trailed 3-2 entering the bottom of the eighth. Alex Rodriguez led off the eighth with a single off Aaron Loup (0-1). He took second base on a passed ball and eventually made his way to third thanks to a Robinson Cano infield single.

Jason Frasor took over for Loup, but promptly hit Mark Teixera with a pitch to load the bases. After striking out Nick Swisher, he gave up the grand slam to Ibanez to put the Yankees ahead for good.

Here is Ibanez after the game:

Phil Hughes pitched seven innings for the Yankees. He gave up just four hits and two earned runs while walking three and striking out four. His solid night was marred in the fourth inning after an Adam Lind solo home run gave the Blue Jays new life. Edwin Encarnacion scored Jose Bautista on a sixth-inning double to tie the game at two runs apiece until Ibanez broke the standstill.

The Yankees took the early lead after Blue Jays starter Henderson Alvarez got off to a shaky start. Alvarez gave up a home run to Russell Martin in the second inning and an RBI double to Cano in the third to spot the Yankees a 2-0 lead. Martin's home run, his ninth of the season, came off a 3-2 pitch with two outs and no men on in the inning. Cano's double extended his hitting streak to 19 games.

Alvarez settled down from there to finish his six innings with just two earned runs against off five hits and four walks.

David Robertson (1-3) was given the win after giving up no hits, no runs and one walk in relief of Hughes during the eighth inning. Rafael Soriano came in for the last two outs of the ninth inning to earn his 23rd save of the season.

Game 2 of the series is set for 7:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday. CC Sabathia (9-3, 3.45 ERA) will return from the disabled list to take on the Blue Jays' Brett Cecil (2-1, 6.75).
