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.
