Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Rajai Davis went 3-for-4 with a solo home run
and an RBI single, and the Toronto Blue Jays held the New York Yankees
scoreless after the first inning to earn a 3-2 victory at Rogers Centre.
The Yankees, who have lost two of the first three in this four-game set, saw
their AL East lead shrink to a half-game over the Baltimore Orioles with four
to play. The Orioles host the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.
Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero exited after the third inning with a knee
injury, and five Blue Jays relievers combined to allow only three hits and two
walks to carry the club to its fourth win in six games.
Shawn Hill (1-0) hurled three hitless innings to earn the win.
Andy Pettitte (5-4), who tossed 11 scoreless frames in his previous two starts
off the disabled list, surrendered three runs on five hits and three walks
over 5 2/3 innings to take the loss.
After Sunday's series finale, the Yankees will host the Red Sox for their
final three games of the regular season.
