With the score knotted at 1-1 in the bottom of the third, the Yankees broke the tie when Curtis Granderson hit a single off starter R.A. Dickey, scoring Robinson Cano. With the game again even at 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth, the Yankees took the lead for good when Alfonso Soriano took Dickey deep to drive in Cano.

David Huff (1-0) got the victory after going five innings and allowing no runs on one hit with two strikeouts and four walks. Thole was tops in the batter's box for the Blue Jays, going 1 for 3 with a home run, a run, and an RBI. Cano finished 2 for 4 with a double and two runs in the win.

The Blue Jays will go up against the Yankees again Thursday at Yankee Stadium at 1:05 PM EDT.
