Recap


Yankees 6, Blue Jays 0 (7): Mark Teixeira belted a two-run homer to highlight a four-run first inning and Hiroki Kuroda scattered four hits over seven frames as host New York completed a three-game sweep in a game called in the seventh due to rain.

Dewayne Wise drove in Jayson Nix twice and Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones had RBI singles for the Yankees, who completed a 5-1 homestand by defeating the Blue Jays for the eighth straight time in the Bronx.

Robinson Cano extended his career-high hitting streak to 21 games with a double in the first inning. Nix went 2-for-3 to improve to 5-for-7 in the series as New York won for the ninth time in 11 outings

To make matters worse for Toronto, third baseman Brett Lawrie suffered a right calf contusion while attempting to catch a foul ball in the third inning. Lawrie extended himself over a railing and into the camera well in his bid to catch Teixeira's pop up.

X-rays were negative and Lawrie is listed as day-to-day.

New York emphatically handed Ricky Romero (8-6) his career-high fifth straight loss after jumping on the struggling hurler in the first inning.

Derek Jeter led off with a double and scored on Swisher's single down the first-base line. Teixeira then deposited a sinker from Romero into the bullpen beyond the left-center field wall for his 19th homer -- and fifth in eight games.

Kuroda (9-7) avenged an 8-1 loss to Toronto on May 16 by striking out five -- including the side in the second inning.

GAME NOTEBOOK: New York recorded its 42nd consecutive game of scoring three or more runs. ... Toronto has been outscored 48-20 during its eight-game slide at Yankee Stadium. ... Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and New York Jets center Nick Mangold were in attendance.
