The Yankees and Blue Jays met up for one final match-up this month before the Yankees head off to Texas to begin a three game series with the Rangers. However, the Yankees were unable to end the home stand on a winning note, falling to the Toronto Blue Jays in a see-saw battle 5-3 loss at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees were able to get on the board in the fourth inning on a Chase Headley home run, his first home run as a New York Yankee. Francisco Cervelli abruptly followed with a home run of his own, tying the game at two. While the Yankees were down 3-2 in the sixth, Brian McCann hit an infield RBI single, scoring Jacoby Ellsbury. While the Yankees were down 4-3 in the eighth, Carlos Beltran hit an RBI single, plating Brett Gardner.

Shane Greene started the game for the Yankees, going 5.1 innings and giving up three runs on eight hits, striking out two. David Huff was able to retire the final two batters of the sixth inning, Dellin Betances gave up a run in his 1.2 innings of work and David Robertson gave up a run in his inning of work, earning him the loss.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees will travel to Texas where they will take on the Texas Rangers in a three game set. David Phelps will take the mound for the Yankees and they’ll oppose Yu Darvish for the second time in less than a week. First pitch is at 8:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    Command problem for Greene with that limited stuffs. At least he carried a game into 6th innings every start since called up.
