New York Yankees lose to the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon.  The

game took place at Steinbrenner Field and the final score was 10-6.  Chris Leroux started the game

on a day when the Yankees named Michael Pineda their fifth starter.  The Yankees used a whole

bunch of pitchers to get through the game.  Derek Jeter had a hit and drew a walk, Carlos Beltran

had two hits and two RBI and Kelly Johnson had a hit and a couple of RBI. 

Leroux pitched three innings giving up five hits and two runs.  Matt Daley retired the only batter that he faced, Fred Lewis pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up two hits and two runs with a walk and Preston Claiborne didn't record an out and gave up four hits and six runs with a walk.  Claiborne got charged with the loss and then even worse got optioned to the minor leagues.  Jim Miller gave up a hit in a scoreless inning, Dellin Betances pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and Danny Burawa pitched an inning giving up a hit and two walks.  Yoshinori Tateyama pitched a scoreless inning giving up a hit and striking out one.

The Yankees will travel to Bradenton to take on the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday afternoon.  CC Sabathia will make his final start in a tuneup before the season opener next Tuesday night in Houston.
