Jays Halt Yankees Eight Game Win Streak

Jays win 7-3 to snap Yankees' 8-game win streak


AP Sports Writer

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.
