Recap


Yankees 9, Blue Jays 4: Lyle Overbay and Vernon Wells homered against their former team and Andy Pettitte remained unbeaten with 7 1/3 strong innings as New York walloped host Toronto.

Pettitte (3-0) limited the Blue Jays to three runs on six hits, with his only major mistake coming on a Jose Bautista two-run homer in the sixth. Travis Hafner added a solo homer while Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored for the Yankees.

Toronto starter Brandon Morrow (0-2) was roughed up for seven runs - five earned - on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. J.P. Arencibia hit a solo homer in the ninth, Melky Cabrera had an RBI groundout and Brett Lawrie added a pair of hits.

After striking for two runs in the first on a Hafner run-scoring double and a Wells RBI groundout, New York broke things open in the third. Hafner drilled a one-out homer to left, and Wells and Ichiro Suzuki scored later in the inning after Eduardo Nunez hit a fly ball that center fielder Colby Rasmus caught before sailing the throw over Arencibia's head at home plate.

Overbay's solo shot highlighted the Yankees' three-run sixth, and Wells added to the onslaught with a blast over the left-field wall in the seventh.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Wells was serenaded with boos from the Blue Jays’ faithful prior to his first at-bat. The veteran outfielder spent his first 12 seasons in Toronto before being traded to the Los Angeles Angels prior to the start of the 2011 campaign. ... Ichiro, a .322 career hitter, finished 2-for-5 to raise his season average to .213. It was his second multi-hit game of the season. ... Bautista finished 1-for-3 with a walk after missing the previous four games with a sore back.
