Yankees Score Five Unanswered Runs To Top Blue Jays

Reyes allows 2 runs in six-plus innings

      TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Jo-Jo Reyes allowed two runs and three hits
in six-plus innings of the Toronto Blue Jays' 5-3 loss to the New
York Yankees on Wednesday night.
      Reyes, Kyle Drabek and Jesse Litsch had been contending for the
final two open starting jobs until the team decided earlier
Wednesday to have No. 2 starter Brandon Morrow open the regular
season on the disabled list with right forearm inflammation.
      The trio will now join opening-day starter Ricky Romero and
Brett Cecil in the rotation.
      Aaron Hill had an RBI double and sacrifice fly for the Blue
Jays. The second baseman played in consecutive game for the first
time since returning from a strained right thigh muscle.
      Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes gave up three runs and eight
hits in seven innings. Robinson Cano hit an RBI single and Russell
Martin had a sacrifice fly in a four-run seventh.
      New York right fielder Nick Swisher fouled a ball off his left
in-step, but finished his at-bat in the sixth. Swisher is sore, but
no X-rays were planned.
