Yankees Beat Blue Jays in Rain Shortened Finale

Yankees were able to pick up the win against the Blue Jays in a rain shortened game beating the Jays by a score of 6-0.

Hiroki Kuroda gave the Yanks another great start as he really found his groove it seems winning his ninth game of the season. Kuroda went seven innings not allowing a run, and only giving up 4 hits while striking out five batters.

Derek Jeter had another multi-hit game on Wednesday afternoon going 2 for 3 with a walk, and a run scored.

Mark Teixeira had a another homerun for his 19th of the season a two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning scoring Nick Swisher.

Robinson Cano wasted no time again extending his hitting streak to 21 games now as he hit his 28th double of the season in the first inning.

Jayson Nix, coming off a 3 for 4 night on Tuesday, was in the lineup again on Wednesday this time starting at shortstop. Nix saw more success at the plate again going 2 for 3 with two runs scored.

Yankees bench which as been great all year saw a good game from Dewayne Wise getting a rare start in Center Field for Curtis Granderson. Wise went 2 for 3 with a double, and two RBIs.

Alex Rodriguez was back in the field after two games at DH with a stiff neck, but had a tough game going 0 for 3 with a throwing error.

Yankees will be heading to the West Coast for a four game series with the Oakland Athletics as Freddy Garcia (4-2, 5.25) will face A.J Griffin (1-0, 2.63).
