      NEW YORK (AP) – Eric Chavez drove in a run and broke up a
potential double play that helped lead to three more, making the
most of a spot start and sending the New York Yankees to a 5-4
victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
      Derek Jeter hit a sacrifice fly, and Curtis Granderson, Russell
Martin and Brett Gardner also drove in runs for the Yankees, who
played small ball to perfection against Toronto.
      A.J. Burnett (4-1) scrapped his way through six innings for New
York, despite giving up nine hits and having to wiggle his way out
of a jam in just about every one of them.
      Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his ninth save.
      Kyle Drabek (2-1) took the loss.
