Jose Pirela hits a liner off Mark Buehrle and hustles for a double to record his first hit of the 2015 season on May 6, 2015 at Rogers Centre in Toronto

Game 28 | 17-11, 1st : Toronto manager John Gibbons made the right move by yanking starter Mark Buehrle after 5 innings with a 3-1 lead. Buehrle has not logged a win against the New York Yankees since 2004 — when gasoline prices hit a then-record high of $1.74 a gallon in America. ‘Confessions’ by Usher was the top selling album of that year, and Facebook was launched as a limited social networking site only for students of Harvard University.
Old friend Russell Martin came back to haunt us again with a home run, and recent Jays call up Christopher Colabello went 4-4, pacing Toronto to a 5-1 victory at Rogers Centre.

“Every game is a new game. It’s not like every time I’ve gone out there I’ve had my butt handed to me. There have been some games I pitched good against them and it just didn’t work out. I came in today like it was a normal start.” ‐ Mark Buehrle  (Hat tip: mlb.com)

Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.

Blue Jays 5, Yankees 1

  • Run Support for CC   Or the lack of it. This is last thing Sabathia needs while he’s trying to find something that works. It’s not like he’s getting hammered every time out. A few innings of timely hitting within CC’s five losses, and that might be a different story.In four of his six starts this season, he’s gotten only 1 run from his offense.
