TORONTO -- Casey McGehee hit a three-run homer and Ivan Nova struck out 10 in 7 1/3 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 before 45,582 at Rogers Centre on Saturday. The third sellout crowd this season in Toronto saw the fourth win in a row for the Yankees, who lead the American League and the fifth loss in a row for the Blue Jays, who are last in the division. Nova (11-6) entered the game winless since July 8 at Boston. In his eight previous starts before Saturday, he was 1-4 record with an earned-run average of 5.89. The right-hander allowed five hits and two runs. Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth inning to pick up his 28th save.

The New York Yankees are a very talented team. When you spend more money than anyone else on an annual basis, your team is generally going to be as talented as any other roster. Well, that is unless you are the Boston Red Sox.
Clearly, spending as much as any other team does not always work. The Red Sox are living proof of that fact.

The Yankees have signed right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe, reports Marc Carig of The Star-Leger. The 39-year-old was released by the Cleveland Indians earlier this week. Lowe has a 5.52 ERA in 21 starts (8-10) for the Indians this season, including an 8.80 ERA in his last dozen starts. Lowe has agreed to pitch out of the bullpen.

But there was some bad news for the Yankees as well, as staff ace CC Sabathia was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his elbow. The move...
TORONTO - Rajai Davis did it at the plate. He did it in the field. And the Toronto Blue Jays needed everything he had to offer to end a five-game losing streak with a 10-7 victory over the New York Yankees Sunday before a crowd of 43,924 at Rogers Centre. Davis equalled his career high with five runs batted in with doubles in the fourth and fifth innings. Then he made a leaping...
Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with...

It may not be from the golden child of the season in Mike Trout, but Rajai Davis may have bested Trout in the catch of the year category.
From George King:
With Ivan Nova getting spanked the past two outings and Freddy Garcia failing to provide consistent length, the Yankees’ rotation requires a boost.
That is expected to be supplied by Andy Pettitte, but general manager Brian Cashman can’t predict an exact date when the 40-year-old lefty will come off the disabled list.
“We have to let the healing...
