Shocking Loss In The Bronx

By MIKE FITZPATRICK
AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) _ Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer off Rafael
Soriano with two outs in the ninth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays
took advantage of Derek Lowe’s wild pickoff throw in the 11th to
beat the New York Yankees 8-7 Monday night, snapping a seven-game
losing streak.

Moments after Rasmus’ stunning drive put Toronto ahead 7-6,
Derek Jeter tied it with a home run off Casey Janssen. But the
last-place Blue Jays didn’t cave, scratching out a run two innings
later to stop an eight-game slide at Yankee Stadium.

The loss might have been a costly one in more ways than one for
the AL East-leading Yankees. Slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira
was pulled with a strained left calf and sent to the hospital for
an MRI.
