The Blue Jays are a last-place team with nothing to gain. The Yankees are a barely-in-the-race team with almost no margin for error. So, naturally, tonight the Blue Jays beat the Yankees 2-0, a wasted opportunity for the Yankees against a team they have dominated most of the season. Five hits and 12 strikeouts was not a good combination for the Yankees lineup, leaving them unable to take advantage of another strong start by Andy Pettitte, who allowed one run through 6.2 innings, with that one run coming on a solo homer by Colby Rasmus. Pettitte had thrown 110 pitches — his highest pitch count of the season — when he was pulled for Shawn Kelley, who allowed a Rajai Davis home run on his second pitch.
