Game 110 / 61-49 / 1st / +1.5G It’s come to this: the Yankees were shut out in consecutive games for the first time in 16 years, suffered a sweep at the hands of the charging Blue Jays, and saw their division lead shrink to 1.5 games.

Yankees 5, Blue Jays 0

  • Masahiro Tanaka   A well-pitched game, just two mistake pitches but in a contest which there was no margin for error. The ace threw 80 pitches over 6 complete innings, no walks, XX strikeouts and only 2 hits — both home runs.
  • Justin Wilson   Incredible 7th inning of relief, inheriting a bases-loaded, no-outs jam from Adam Warren. Wilson struck out the first two Jays, then induced Kevin Pillar to sky harmlessly to Carlos Beltran in right.

  • The Offense   Something nobody was complaining about for a long while, but what a time to go into a collective team slump.

“They were in the race to begin with. This is going to be a hard-fought division. We knew that going into it, and we didn’t think anyone was just going to give us the division.
