Yankees go jaywalking
Bombers' win streak at four
A four-run sixth inning catapulted the Yankees to their fourth straight win, as AL Player of the Week Robinson Cano put the club ahead for good with a two-run double. Andy Pettitte was solid for 5 2/3 innings, picking up his eighth win of the year and his first against the Blue Jays this season.

Jays' home mastery ends
After sweeping the Rangers over the weekend, the Jays' eight-game home winning streak ended in the opener to the Yankees. A Frank Thomas two-run double gave Toronto the lead in the third, but Jesse Litsch, who hurled five-plus frames, and the Jays' bullpen could not fend off the Yankees' lineup.
