Yankees Rally Past Jays – Stay Tied Atop East

After a crushing loss the night before, the Yankees managed  a win over the Blue Jays to stay locked in a tie with the Orioles atop the AL East.

A tough open to the game had Yankee fans worried as the Blue Jays pounced on the slow starting Phil Hughes. The early hole was two thanks to a bottom of the first double and sacrifice fly.  Chavez would pull the Yankees closer with a solo home run in the third, but the Blue Jays would extend their lead with three in the fifth.

Trailing 5-2 in the seventh, and with the Orioles leading the Red Sox, the Yankees looked to be in serious trouble.  But an Ichiro sacrifice fly, a Cano double, and a convenient wild pitch pulled the Yankees level.  They’d  claim the lead in the eighth by way of a Nunez sacrifice fly and a Jeter single.  A pair of ninth inning insurance runs proved important for the Yankees, who had to survive a bases loaded jam in the bottom half of the inning before finally retiring the Jays for the win.

The win keeps the Yankees tied with the Orioles atop the AL East.  The Bronx Bombers now head home for the final three games of the season against the Boston Red Sox, while the Orioles head down to Tampa Bay to finish their season against the Rays.

First pitch for tomorrow night’s game is 7:05 and you can catch Yankee pre game on 104.5 The Team beginning at 6:30 following Game on with Bruce Jacobs.
