The New York Yankees lose in Toronto as they are one hit

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon.  The game took place at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada and the final score was 2-0.  Michael Pineda started for the Yankees and pitched well but the Yankees offense couldn't do anything. 

Pineda pitched six+ innings giving up two runs on seven hits.  He didn't walk a batter and struck out three and picked up his third loss of the season.  Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and David Huff walked one in one inning. 

Drew Hutchison pitched seven shutout innings giving up one hit.  He walked two and struck out nine and also hit two batters.  Aaron Sanchez pitched two perfect innings for his first major league save.  He struck out three batters. 

Mark Teixeira got the Yankees only hit.  Carlos Beltran and Stephen Drew each drew a walk and Teixeira hit a double.  The Yankees were 0-1 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base. 

Jose Reyes had a hit, Melky Cabrera had a hit and Jose Bautista had a hit, two RBI and drew a walk.  Adam Lind had a hit, Edward Encarnacion had a hit and Dioner Navarro had a hit.  Danny Valencia had a hit, Lind and Navarro each hit a double and Bautista hit a homerun.  The Blue Jays were 1-8 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Reyes had a stolen base. 

In the first inning Bautista hit a two run homerun and that was all the scoring in the game.  The Yankees best chance was in the fourth inning when they left the bases loaded.  The two teams have split the first two games of the series and will play the rubber game on Sunday afternoon.
