Yanks ride big inning to win over Blue Jays

(Friday, August 29)

Final Score: New York 6, Toronto 3

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) – Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer to cap a five-run seventh inning that powered the New York Yankees to a 6-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Chris Capuano (2-3) started Friday’s series opener for New York and earned his first win with the club. The veteran lefty allowed three runs — two earned — on eight hits and walked one in 6 1/3 innings.

Toronto starter Mark Buehrle (11-9) held the Yankees scoreless through the first six innings, but left without recording an out in the seventh.

Brian McCann opened the decisive frame with a double and Carlos Beltran followed with a walk. McCann came around on Brett Gardner’s double to right field, tying the game at 1-1, and an errant throw by Steve Tolleson on the relay to third base allowed Beltran to score the go-ahead run.

An infield single by Ichiro Suzuki ended the outing for Buehrle, who fell to 1-13 in his career against the Yankees. He has lost 11 consecutive decisions dating back to 2004.

New York went up 3-1 when catcher Dioner Navarro tied to pick Gardner off at third and fired his throw into left field. Ellsbury then hit a bullet to right off Aaron Loup.

Toronto got two runs back in the bottom of the seventh. Kevin Pillar, who made a spectacular diving catch to end the fourth, hit an RBI double and Melky Cabrera supplied a sacrifice fly off Adam Warren after Jose Reyes reached on a Derek Jeter throwing error.

Warren then hit Jose Bautista with a pitch, but got Edwin Encarnacion to fly out to right to end the inning.

Chase Headley made it 6-3 with a home run to right-center field to begin the ninth.

David Robertson recorded the final four outs for his 35th save of the season.

Bautista homered in a third straight game for the Blue Jays. He belted a Capuano pitch to the second deck in left in the fourth.

Game Notes

Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka will head back to New York with soreness in his pitching arm. He has been trying to return from a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow without undergoing Tommy John surgery.
