Blue Jays Top Yankees 8-4

Though it was a back and forth game, the Jays eventually powered past the Yanks.

It was a game of surges, with momentum – and the lead – changing hands throughout.  Two early runs had the Blue Jays leading Ivan Nova and the Yankees 2-0, but a Chris Stewart home run in the third inning and back to back bases loaded walks in the fifth saw the Yanks claw their way on top. A Gardner sacrifice fly would extend the lead in the sixth inning.

The Blue Jays wouldn’t stay down long, however, answering with four runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a lead they wouldn’t relinquish – though they padded it with a two run home run in the seventh for the final 8-4 margin.

Nova pitched an uninspiring five innings, giving up seven hits and four runs; Phelps gave up three runs in relief, Logan gave up one.

Tomorrow, the Yanks begin a three game set with the Rays in Tampa Bay.  Coverage of game one begins on 104.5 The Team at 6:15.
