The Yankees fail to sweep the Jays as Hughes struggles

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon by the score of 10-7. The game was played at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. Phil Hughes started for the Yankees and did not pitch well at all. The bullpen did a decent job. Derek Jeter led the Yankees offense. J.A. Happ started for the Blue Jays and pitched ok, their bullpen let the Yankees get back in the game but then closed it out. Rajai Davis led the Jays offense.  Hughes pitched four innings giving up nine hits and seven runs. He walked one and struck out four and suffered his 10th loss of the season. Ryota Igarashi who was called up for the day pitched two innings giving up three hits and three runs with a walk and a strikeout, Cody Eppley pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up a hit and a walk with three strikeouts and Clay Rapada gave up a hit without recording an out.
