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.

Here is Sabathia discussing his return:

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).
