Yankees Batter Blue Jays 4-2

Automated Insights

Mariano Rivera fanned two in relief as New York halted any shot of a late rally to take care of Toronto, 4-2. Toronto stranded 10 runners.

With the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the third and the Yankees batting, Curtis Granderson hit a single off starter R.A. Dickey, driving in Robinson Cano. Again tied 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth, the Yankees took a lead they would not relinquish when Alfonso Soriano homered off Dickey, scoring Cano.

Adam Warren (1-2) went three innings and got a no-decision after he surrendered two runs on four hits with four strikeouts and two walks. Rivera went one inning to successfully convert his 37th save of the season after giving up one hit, striking out two and walking no one. Dickey (9-12) picked up the loss after pitching eight innings and giving up four runs on six hits with nine strikeouts and two walks. Cano was terrific at the plate for the Yankees, going 2 for 4 with a double and two runs. Soriano also contributed, going 1 for 3 with a home run, a run, two RBIs, and a walk. Josh Thole finished 1 for 3 with a home run, a run, and an RBI in the loss.

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