Yanks Lose in Ninth

NEW YORK (AP) — Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied after wasting three leads to beat the New York Yankees 5-4 Sunday for their first series win in the Bronx in nearly two years.

After snapping a 17-game skid at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, Toronto did not relent in the humidity. Jose Bautista reached on a fielder’s choice against David Robertson (1-3) in the ninth, stole second without a throw and scored on Navarro’s liner to center field.

Toronto hadn’t taken a series against the Yankees in New York since Aug. 27-29, 2012, the last time the Blue Jays had won on the road against the AL East rival. With the win, the Blue Jays left town with a one-game lead over the Yankees for the second AL wild card.

Aaron Sanchez (1-0) gave up Carlos Beltran’s tying RBI hit in the eighth. Munenori Kawasaki had put Toronto ahead with a sacrifice fly that followed Dellin Betances’ two-base error on a pickoff attempt.

Juan Francisco homered off Shane Greene leading off the fifth to put Toronto up 2-0. But Chase Headley hit his first homer with the Yankees, off J.A. Happ, and two pitches later Francisco Cervelli hit his first homer in 15 months to tie it in the sixth.

Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his 16th save.
