• Pettitte, Yanks handle Jays after long delay

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 22, 2013
    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. The lone blemish on Pettitte's line was the solo home run he gave up to Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia in the fifth inning. The last-place Blue Jays have lost five straight and 11 of 15. Blue Jays center fielder Rajai Davis looked like he caught Wells' bases-loaded flare, then threw the ball in to second baseman Munenori Kawasaki, who tagged both Chris Stewart and Ichiro Suzuki, who were both near the second-base bag. After a discussion and an argument with and subsequent ejection of Blue Jays manager John Gibbons the umpires determined that Davis trapped the ball in center, so Wells was safe at first and Ichiro was safe at second while Stewart was out advancing to third. 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.
