Andy Pettitte pitched six effective innings, Curtis Granderson homered, and the New York Yankees beat Toronto 5-3 on Thursday after a 3 1/2-hour rain delay for their 10th straight victory against the Blue Jays.
Eduardo Nunez hit a two-run single, and the surging Yankees took advantage of a missed call to win their fifth consecutive game and 10th in 12 overall. New York improved to 12-1 against Toronto this season with its second four-game sweep of the Blue Jays, and moved within 3 1/2 games of the second AL wild-card spot.
The Yankees have won 13 home games in a row against Toronto, their longest streak against one team since a 14-game run against Kansas City from August 2002 to April 2006.
The last-place Blue Jays have lost five straight and 11 of 15. The only other opponent to sweep a pair of four-game series from them in one season was the 1978 Milwaukee Brewers.
Toronto had a lead in every game of this series, just as it did during New York's four-game whitewash at Yanke...

All-time hit king Pete Rose thinks Ichiro is a fantastic ballplayer but argues the hits he tallied during his career in Japan shouldn't count towards his professional total.

David Huff is a relief pitcher for the New York Yankees. The Bronx Bombers acquired him on May 26, 2013 via waivers after the Cleveland Indians designated him for assignment on May 24, 2013.
He made his Yankees’ debut the same day, but was DFA’d again on the 28th of May, in a move that corresponded...

New York Yankees 2 — Tampa Bay Rays 7
A rare bad start by Hiroki Kuroda in tonight’s 7-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Yankees got behind the speed of Brett Gardner for the offense tonight. He would start the game with a walk and would steal second base...
On Wednesday, New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki joined an elite club by notching his 4,000th career hit in professional baseball.It is certainly no small feat to record that many hits over a career even if about one-third of them were amassed while playing in Japan.In fact, Ichiro recorded 1,278 hits in Japan's top baseball league, with the other 2,722 coming while playing...
Jayson Nix was hit by an R.A. Dickey knuckleball during Wednesday night’s game against the Blue Jays. He jogged to first base but was removed and sent for X-Rays which revealed a fractured left hand.
This is obviously nothing new for the Yankees who have seen their fair share of injuries over the course of the season. Nix had already been sidelined for an extended period after...
The latest entry in the long-running series in which Brian Cashman discusses the current state of the New York Yankees. With his headwarmer.
Cashman: I’ve been thinking a lot about Dempster hitting A-Rod.
Headwarmer: Thinking? That’s not like you, Bri.
Cashman: It just doesn’t make sense to me. A-Rod has been living in his own reviled bubble for so long. Why would the Sox want...
New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki joined rare company today with hit No. 4000, a single off of Toronto Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey.
The first nine years of his pro career were spent in Japan with the Orix Blue Wave where he collected 1278 hits. He continued his hitting ways with the Seattle Mariners notching 10 straight seasons of 200...
It is my fault.I thought I could sneak in a meaningless comment without impacting the Ju-Ju that was working for the Yankees, but I was wrong.Next time the Yankees go on a run, if I am still alive, I will simply remain silent.Now that I have awakened, however, I want to point out the obvious. This team, even with the band-aid squad back on scene, does not have the horses to win...
Ichiro Suzuki notched his 4,000th hit on Wednesday and if you really think about it, that is a ridiculous feat to accomplish. The hits occurred between his time between the Majors and Nippon Professional Baseball. Congrats, sir.
