Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Rajai Davis doubled twice and drove in five runs while saving two with his glove as host Toronto held off a late charge to snap its five-game skid and New York's four-game winning streak.
Davis delivered a two-run double during a six-run fourth inning that gave the Blue Jays a 7-0 lead. He made it 10-1 a frame later with a three-run double that capped his season-high five-RBI performance.
Davis also made a key play in left field in the seventh, robbing Casey McGehee of a two-run homer by jumping and snagging the ball just before it went over the wall. The catch proved to be crucial as the American League East-leading Yankees went on to score three times in the inning to pull within 10-7.
Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and Moises Sierra also collected three hits to support J.A. Happ (1-1), who notched his first win in six games as a Blue Jay despite allowing four runs and six hits over 5 2/3 innings. Encarnacion finished a triple shy of the cycle.
Derek Jeter, who also missed hitting for the cycle by a triple, began New York's comeback attempt in the sixth with a solo homer and Robinson Cano added a two-run shot later in the frame to cut the deficit to six. Jayson Nix and Jeter hit back-to-back RBI doubles off Brad Lincoln in the seventh and Nick Swisher followed with a run-scoring single.
Darren Oliver came on and yielded a double by Mark Teixeira before hitting Cano with a pitch to put the tying run on base. But the veteran left-hander induced a groundout by Andruw Jones to end the rally.
Casey Janssen worked a perfect ninth for his 15th save in 16 opportunities.
Phil Hughes (11-10) lasted only four innings, surrendering seven runs and nine hits.
