The Yankees lose opener to Jays as sixth inning is a bad inning

The New York Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays by the score of 7-3 tonight.  Bartolo Colon made the start and didn't do so well, he was pitching well up until the sixth inning.  His control wasn't as sharp as it has been and that is what really hurt him.  He pitched six innings giving up six runs, he walked four and struck out eight.  Hector Noesi pitched the final three innings giving up a run and a hit. 

The offense was led by Robinson Cano who had three RBI.  Alex Rodriguez had another couple of hits as he continues to be hot.  The offense didn't do that much once again, Curtis Granderson drew three walks.  The Yankees were facing a pitcher that they have never seen before and they always do bad in those games.  The Yankees offense has been in a bad slump, not hitting with runners in scoring position and in general.  They were 2-15 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. 

The Yankees remain in first place as both the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox lost.
