Yankees-Blue Jays Score: Toronto Routs Yankees, 16-7

It is hard to imagine a worse way for the New York Yankees to begin the second half of the 2011 season. The Yankees suffered a lopsided 16-7 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in which Toronto scored eight first-inning runs, five unearned thanks to an Eduardo Nunez error.

New York starting pitching Bartolo Colon lasted only two-thirds of inning, with a two-out error by Nunez leading to the final five runs.

The Blue Jays set a season-high in runs despite having All-Star third baseman Jose Bautista leave the game in the fourth inning with a twisted right ankle. He's day-to-day. Toronto got 20 hits against five Yankee pitchers.

The Yankees closed within 9-7 in the sixth inning, thanks mostly to two home runs and four RBI by Andruw Jones. New York, however, could not hold down Toronto's offense. The 16 runs was a season-high for the Blue Jays.

Robinson Cano and Brett Gardner each got three hits for the Yankees.
