After sweeping the Blue Jays last week, you had to figure the Yankees would go into Toronto with some confidence. Even after losing their past two games. Well, now the streak has reached three as Chase Whitley was pounded from the start as the Yankees lost to Toronto by an 8-3 score.
A sixth run second put an end to this one in a hurry. Three straight singles Juan Francisco, Muenori Kawasaki and Anthony Gose loaded the bases. Jose Reyes grounded into a force out but a run scored to make it 2-0. Cabrera’s single made it 3-0. Lind brought everyone home with a three run bomb to make it 6-0. Edwin Encarnacion singled, went to second on a wild pitch, third on a groundout and scored on Dioner Navarro‘s single.
The Yankees got a couple of runs in the ninth to make it interesting. Francisco Cervelli led off with a walk and Carlos Beltran singled. Yangervis Solarte broke his 28 at bat hitless streak with an RBI single. After a flyout, Kelly Johnson drove home a run with a bloop double, but Brian Roberts flew out to end the game.
