 TORONTO (AP) _ Marco Estrada pitched eight scoreless innings, Ryan Goins homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 4-2 on Monday night for their fifth win in six games.

Estrada (3-2) allowed three hits and won back-to-back starts for the first time this season. He beat the Yankees in New York last week.

Estrada’s start came at a perfect time for the Blue Jays bullpen, which was worn down following Sunday’s 11-inning loss to Boston. Four Toronto relievers, including closer Roberto Osuna, were unavailable against New York.

After Aaron Loup gave up a two-run home run to Brian McCann in the ninth, Drew Storen came on and got the final two outs for his third save.

Goins went 2 for 2 and scored twice. It was his first multihit game since April 13, also against the Yankees.

Edwin Encarnacion had two RBIs, and the Blue Jays won for the 11th time in 15 meetings with New York. The Yankees have lost four of six overall.

Encarnacion hit an RBI double off Ivan Nova in the first and added an RBI groundout in the third. Michael Saunders followed with an RBI double.

Goins hit a leadoff homer in the fifth, his third.

Starlin Castro walked to begin the eighth and went to third on a two-out double by Aaron Hicks, but Estrada got Jacoby Ellsbury to pop out to end the inning.

Nova (3-3) allowed four runs and eight hits in six-plus innings, losing to Toronto for the second straight start.
