Well, I asked the Yankees to score three runs in the game thread and they did. Of course, it would have been better if they hadn’t allowed the Blue Jays to score eight of their own. Oops.
Chase Whitley had an awful outing. His final line was 3.1 IP, 11 H, 8R, 8ER, 3BB, 2K and he gave up a home run to Adam Lind that quickly made it 6-0 in the second inning. Toronto went up 7-0 in that same inning thanks to a Dioner Navarro double that scored Edwin Encarnacion.
Mark Teixeira was responsible for the only Yankee run in the first eight innings – he hit a solo shot in the top of the fourth.
Navarro stuck again in the bottom of the fourth, hitting an RBI single to put Toronto up 8-1. Whitley was taken out with one out in the fourth.
The Yankees scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth. Yangervis Solarte broke out of an 0-28 slump with an RBI single and Kelly Johnson hit career double #200 which scored Carlos Beltran to make the score 8-3. But that would be all the Yankees could muster.
