The Toronto Blue Jays kicked off their series against the New York Yankees on Monday night with a 6-3 loss.

Russell Martin opened the scoring for New York in the bottom of the second inning by hitting a solo home run.  Robinson Cano then made it 2-0 by driving in Alex Rodriguez with a double.

The Blue Jays got their first run at the top of the fourth inning when Adam Lind hit a solo home run.

In the sixth inning, the Jays tied it up when Edwin Encarnacion drove in Jose Baustista with a double.

Speaking of Bautista, he was placed on the 15-day disabled list after injuring his left wrist in the eighth inning of Monday night’s game when he was hit by a wild pitch.

There was no scoring until the eighth inning when Raul Ibanez hit a grand slam to make it 6-2.

The Jays got one more run in the ninth inning, but the damaged had already been done.

Starting pitcher, Henderson Alvarez gave up five hits, two earned runs, four walks, and struck out six batters in six innings pitched.

Tuesday night wasn’t any better for the Jays as they lost 6-1.  Starting pitcher, Brett Cecil gave up six hits, three earned runs, two walks, and struck out five batters in six innings pitched.

There was a scary moment for the Jays in the third inning when Brett Lawrie injured his leg when he fell into the photogragher’s well, trying to catch a fly ball.   Luckly for the Jays, the X-rays were negotive and Lawrie is listed day-to-day.

There was no scoring until the fourth inning when Dwayne Wise drove in Jayson Nix with double to make it 5-0.

New York added one more run in the sixth inning.

The game was called for rain, giving the Jays a 6-0 loss and the Yankees the three game sweep.

Jays starting pitcher, Ricky Romero had a very rough day on the mound, giving up 12 hits, six earned runs, two walks, and striking out only two batters in six innings pitched.
