NEW YORK (AP) – Aaron Hill and Vernon Wells each hit two-run
homers and the Toronto Blue Jays spoiled Alex Rodriguez's return to
the New York lineup, beating the Yankees 7-3 on Sunday to halt
their eight-game winning streak.
Rodriguez had been out since Aug. 20 with a strained left calf,
but the Yankees sure didn't seem to miss him. They were riding
their longest winning stretch of the season and 11-3 since he went
on the disabled list, carrying a 2½-game lead over Tampa Bay in the
AL East into Sunday.
The three-time AL MVP had a pair of hits and drove in a run, but
he also grounded out with a runner aboard in the first, dribbled
one back to the pitcher with two on in the third, and struck out
looking with a runner on third base to end the game.
