Blue Jays beat Yanks 7-2 as home 'dogs

TORONTO (AP) - Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run home run, rookie Todd Redmond snapped a seven-start winless streak and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 7-2 on Wednesday night.

The Blue Jays took two out of three from the Yankees after losing 12 of their first 13 meetings this season. They're 3-3 against New York at home and 0-10 on the road.

Redmond (2-2) left to a standing ovation after striking out Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez to begin the sixth inning. He allowed two runs and three hits, walked four and struck out seven for his first victory since beating Minnesota on July 7.

Aaron Loup worked 1 1-3 innings, Sergio Santos pitched the eighth and Darren Oliver finished for the Blue Jays.

New York's Hiroki Kuroda (11-10) lost for the fourth time in five starts and gave up seven runs for the second straight outing, matching his career high for the seventh time. Five of the seven runs off Kuroda were earned. He allowed nine hits, walked one and struck out four.

Kuroda came in 4-0 with a 1.60 ERA over his previous five starts against the Blue Jays, but couldn't bring an end to his recent road struggles, falling to 0-4 with a 6.94 ERA in his past four starts away from home.

Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was held out of the lineup, one day after being hit by a pitch on the left hand. Manager Joe Girardi said Cano was still dealing with pain and swelling, but said he hoped to have the five-time All-Star back for Friday night's game against Baltimore. The Yankees are off Thursday.

New York's Eduardo Nunez, who left Tuesday's game with a sore right knee, was scratched from the lineup after he felt sore during batting practice. Mark Reynolds made his first career start at second.

Toronto took advantage of a throwing error by Yankees catcher Chris Stewart in a four-run, two out rally in the first. Brett Lawrie hit a two-run double and Rajai Davis was hit by a pitch before J.P. Arencibia reached on a two-strike passed ball. Lawrie and Davis both scored when Stewart's errant throw to first rolled into foul territory down the right field line.

The Blue Jays made it 6-0 when Encarnacion clubbed his 34th home run in the second, a towering two-run shot to left. A seventh run scored on Jose Reyes' sacrifice fly in the third.

New York broke through against Redmond in the fourth, when Rodriguez hit an RBI single. One out later, Reynolds hit an RBI double, but Rodriguez was thrown out at the plate trying to score from first.

Rodriguez finished 1 for 4 with three strikeouts.

NOTES: The Yankees struck out 13 times, one shy of their season high for a nine-inning game. ... Girardi said RHP Phil Hughes remains on track to make his next scheduled start Sunday. Hughes is winless in his past nine outings. ... Toronto RHP Steve Delabar (shoulder) threw one perfect inning for the Gulf Coast Blue Jays on Wednesday, his first rehab appearance.
