Yankees lose second in a row in Toronto

The New York Yankees lost their second game in a row in Toronto.  They lost to the Blue Jays by the score of 7-1.  It was a sloppy game once again for the Yankees.  They have had two straight poor pitching performances and the defense has not been good at all either.  The offense in this one did nothing either so it was an all around poor effort.  Brandon Morrow started for the Blue Jays and dominated the Yankees potent lineup.  Eduardo Nunez was one of the few bright spots with two hits.  Nick Swisher also had a coupe of hits.  The top four in the lineup went 0-11 for the Yankees. 

Cory Wade pitched well in relief and Sergio Mitre continues to pitch in garbage time and just make it worse.  The Yankees will look to rebound when they play tomorrow afternoon with CC Sabathia taking the mound.  Phil Hughes will pitch on Sunday.  It looked like Freddy Garcia was affected by the long layoff.  He hadn't pitched since July 3rd because of a rain out and the All Star Break.  Garcia came into the game on a roll but just didn't have it in this game.  The Yankees offense was completely shut down, in the first game they did their job but there was no pitching or defense at all.
