Five-run sixth dooms Yankees

Bartolo Colon was pitching well until, suddenly, he wasn’t. Toronto’s five-run sixth inning started with a bad route on a leadoff double and extended through two intentional walks, but when Colon couldn’t get key outs against three straight batters, the Blue Jays were on their way to a 7-3 win. Aaron Hill singled in the go-ahead run, then Colon walked in a run before J.P. Arencibia broke the game open with a three-run double. It was only the second time in seven starts that Colon had allowed more than three runs.
