After opening the series with a 6-3 win, the Yankees fell to the Blue Jays in Game 2. Drew Hutchison allowed only one hit through seven innings as the Blue Jays topped the Yankees 2-0. With the win, the Blue Jays (68-67) climbed back over .500 while the Yankees fell to 70-64.

The Yankees have cooled off a little  bit since winning 5 in a row. They have still won seven of their last 10 and are two games behind the Seattle Mariners in the Wild Card race.

Jacoby Ellsbury’s ankle is something to watch for as he sprained it in Friday’s game. He missed Saturday’s game and his status is uncertain, but he is likely to miss today’s game and potentially a few more.
