TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays ended a five-game losing streak as Rajai Davis drove in five runs and saved a home run with a spectacular catch in a 10-7 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday before 43,924 at Rogers Centre.

The five RBIs equalled a career high by Davis, and Edwin Encarnacion had three hits, including a two-run homer, as the Blue Jays held on after leading 10-1.

Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes (11-10) gave up nine hits, including Encarnacion's homer, and seven runs in four innings. He was replaced by right-hander Ryota Igarashi, who was called up from Class AAA Scranton Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ (1-1) allowed four runs in 5 2/3 innings on six hits, including homers by Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano.

Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his 15th save.

Encarnacion doubled with two outs and scored on a single by David Cooper in the first inning to give Toronto a 1-0 lead.

Toronto (54-60) scored six runs while batting around in the fourth. Moises Sierra picked up his second single of the game to lead off the fourth inning and scored on a double by Jeff Mathis.

Mathis moved to third base on Yan Gomes' fly out to right. Anthony Gose walked with one out, and Davis scored two runs with a double to left center. Davis stole third and scored on an infield hit to deep shortstop by Mike McCoy.

Encarnacion followed with his 30th homer of the season to put Toronto into a 7-0 lead.

The Yankees (67-47), held to one hit for the first four innings, scored once in the fifth on doubles by Andruw Jones and Casey McGehee.

In the home fifth, Davis drove in three more runs with a two-out double against Igarashi and the Blue Jays lead was 10-1. Sierra started the inning with a single and was forced at second by Mathis. Gomes walked, and with two out Adeiny Hechavarria hit an infield single to short to load the bases.

Jeter hit his ninth homer of the season with one out in the sixth. Nick Swisher singled and Cano hit his 25th homer of the season with two out to cut the lead to 10-4. Brad Lincoln replaced Happ.

Davis made a spectacular leaping catch to take away a possible two-run homer by McGehee for the first out of the seventh. Curtis Granderson started the inning with an infield single and finally did score on a double by Jayson Nix.

Jeter doubled and Swisher singled to account for two more runs.

Left-hander Darren Oliver replaced Lincoln and loaded the bases after he gave up a double to Mark Teixeira and hit Cano with a pitch before working out of the inning.

Notes: Hechavarria made his first major-league start at shortstop Sunday. His six previous big-league starts since being called up from Class-AAA Las Vegas were at third base. ....Because of injuries, Encarnacion was the only player from Toronto's opening-day lineup who was in the lineup on Sunday. ...Cano was the Yankees' DH on Sunday with Jayson Nix starting at second base. ..RHP David Phelps (2-3, 2.42 ERA) will start Monday against the Rangers, who will start RHP Ryan Dempster (1-0, 6.35 ERA). Phelps taking over the start from LHP CC Sabathia (elbow), who was put on the disabled on Saturday.
