Blue Jays Top Yanks 5-3

Tonight was an exciting game where the Yankees ended up on the wrong side of the score, suffering a 5-3 defeat to the Blue Jays

The scoring started in the bottom of the 2nd where Russell Martin doubled in Robinson Cano to give the Yanks a quick 1-0 lead. However, the Blue Jays struck back the following inning when Freddy Garcia issued a leadoff walk to Escobar and Jose Bautista smashed a homer to left to put the Jays up 2-1. 

J.P. Arencibia connected in the top of the fourth to extend Toronto's lead to 3-1. Cano followed with his first of two homers on the night in the bottom half of the inning to bring the Bombers back within one run. 

David Robertson came on in relief of Freddy Garcia in the sixth and things became ugly. Two runs scored, one of which unearned on a wild throw by Robertson and the Jays led 5-2. 

Cano led off the eighth with a homer to bring the Yanks to 5-3. They'd load the bases only to have Derek Jeter strike out and Nick Swisher ground to first. 

Ricky Romero picked up his second win of the season in a strong six inning outing, striking out seven and allowing only two runs on five hits. 

Freddy Garcia pitched a mediocre game of five innings, three runs on seven hits and five walks. 

Play of the Game: Alex Rodriguez grounded into a double play to decrease their odds of winning by 21.3%
