Brett+Gardner+New+York+Yankees+v+Toronto+Blue+u9ajb3TQwwIl

The Yankees were cruising into the sixth inning with a 3-0 lead and it appeared they were going to take the series from the Toronto Blue Jays. However, The Blue Jays scored four unanswered runs, giving the Yankees a 4-3 loss at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The Yankees scored their first run on a lead-off home run by Brett Gardner, who was a single shy of hitting for the cycle once the game was completed. In the fourth inning, Francisco Cervelli hit a RBI single and in the fifth, Gardner tripled and scored on the same play due to the ball being thrown into the seats.

Brandon McCarthy was looking for a bounce back start, but instead gave the Yankees six innings, giving up four runs on five hits and three home runs. Dellin Betances pitched two scoreless innings but he gave up an inherited runner in the seventh inning.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees are off tomorrow (Happy Labor Day!) but they’ll be back in the Bronx on Tuesday, facing the Boston Red Sox as they continue their trek for a second Wild Card Spot. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    Chaz Roe is in and who is out? Daley to be DFAed? Tanaka moved to 60 day DL?

    Wow , how stupid can Girardi be.
    Never should have let McCarthy start the 7th.
    We need wins and use the whole bullpen including
    starters who are scheduled for sides today.(AndyPettite)
    Rosters expand use everyone.
    Better managing and the Yankees could three more wins.

  3. During August Jeter has been batting .208-avg, .227-obp, .264-slg, .491-ops.

    He is having a terrible year
    With those horrible number he is still batting 2nd

      Not that NY didn't have opportunities to win… once again too many LOB. Jeter batting 2nd with .208 avg for Aug. and Teixeira around .220 on the season batting cleanup? C'mon, Joe. Maybe clustering players batting over .250 will improve chances for a few more wins.
