Yanks can’t complete comeback in Toronto

TORONTO (AP) — Jose Reyes atoned for a pair of misplays by hitting a leadoff double in the ninth inning and scoring when Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte threw away a bunt, lifting the Toronto Blue Jays over New York 7-6 Tuesday night.

The Yankees trailed 6-0 before tying it, then lost their fourth in a row.

Reyes doubled off Adam Warren (1-4) into the right-field corner. Melky Cabrera followed with a sacrifice bunt, and Warren and Solarte seemed to hesitate over who would field it.

Solarte picked up the ball and threw it past second baseman Brian Roberts covering at first. The ball sailed into foul territory down the right-field line and Reyes trotted home.

Casey Janssen (2-0) worked one inning for the victory.
