Ichiro Drives In Five as Yankees Thump Blue Jays
Ichiro Suzuki matched a career high with five RBIs and Freddy Garcia won in Toronto for the first time in more than a decade, leading the New York Yankees to a 10-4 victory Friday night over the injury-riddled Blue Jays.
Mark Teixeira hit his 22nd homer to help the AL East leaders win their third consecutive game and snap a three-game skid at Rogers Centre. New York had not won three straight since sweeping Toronto at Yankee Stadium from July 16-18.
Garcia (6-5) allowed two runs and five hits in six innings to win back-to-back starts for the second time this season. He also did it July 7 at Boston and July 14 against the Angels.
