Seven-run fifth leads Jays past Yankees

at Dunedin, Fla.
Monday, March 19

Yankees at the plate: New York tallied six hits, but it managed only one run against Toronto. The Yankees' lone run came when first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz drove in Robinson Cano on a double-play groundout in the fourth inning.

Blue Jays at the plate: Second baseman Aaron Hill sent a ball bouncing off the left-field wall for a two-run double in the second inning that gave Toronto an early, 2-0, lead. Catcher Gregg Zaun capped off a seven-run fifth inning with a three-run home run to right off New York reliever Chris Britton.

Yankees on the mound: Right-hander Jeff Karstens allowed four runs on six hits, including three doubles, in 4 1/3 innings for the Yankees. Karstens, who hadn't given up any runs before Monday's outing, threw 75 pitches (50 for strikes) and struck out two in the outing. Britton allowed four runs on three hits in one-third of an inning.

Blue Jays on the mound: Right-hander Tomo Ohka, who is in the running for a spot in Toronto's rotation, allowed one run on three hits in five innings. Ohka threw 64 pitches, including 37 strikes, and he struck out two with one walk. Right-hander Victor Zambrano added four scoreless frames.

Grapefruit League records: Yankees 11-7-1; Blue Jays 7-10-2.

Up next: After an off-day on Tuesday, Toronto right-hander Josh Towers is scheduled to make his fourth start of Spring Training when the Blue Jays host the Phillies at 7:05 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Knology Park.

The Yankees are back at home to see the Phillies on Tuesday, facing off at 7:15 p.m. Left-hander Kei Igawa is scheduled to start for New York, with right-hander Zack Segovia going for Philadelphia.
