After they lucked into a bases-loaded opportunity in the fifth inning, the Yankees weren’t able to take advantage of anything. They stranded eight runners in the final five innings, Dave Robertson let a run score on a terrible throw that sailed into the outfield and the Yankees went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position letting Toronto sneak away with a 5-3 win. Freddy Gracia had his worst start of the year but gave the Yankees a chance. So did relievers Buddy Carlyle, Joba Chamberlain and Boone Logan. Robinson Cano’s pair of solo home runs, though, accounted for almost all of the Yankees offense.
