After loading the bases with one out in the inning, Aaron Hill broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI single. Colon then walked Eric Thames to make it 3-1 and the next batter, J. P. Arencibia, cleared the bases with a double to the wall in right-center.
Carlos Villanueva was sharp over five innings for the Jays, holding the Yanks to just one run on two hits and walk, while fanning five. The lone run scored against him came in the 4th on a sac fly by Robinson Cano. They picked up individual runs in the sixth and eighth off the Jays relievers--both also driven in by Cano--but overall it was a pretty disappointing night for the offense. As a team they left eight men on, and went 2-for-15 with RISP.
Tampa and Boston both lost as well, so nothing changes in the standings (It's way too early for this, I know).
Game two of this three-game set is tomorrow night, with CC Sabathia facing Ricky Romero. First pitch is 7:05 PM.
