TORONTO (AP) _ Travis Snider doubled home the winning run in the
10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 6-5
on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jays scored twice off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera in
the ninth to tie it before winning it against Ivan Nova (1-2).

Edwin Encarnacion opened the 10th with a single. After Jayson
Nix and Yunel Escobar flied out, Snider drove a double to
right-center, scoring Encarnacion with the winning run. Snider, who
went 1 for 6, tossed his helmet away in celebration as the winning
run scored.

Jon Rauch (1-1) pitched one inning for the win as Toronto
snapped a three-game losing streak.
