Jose Reyes scored the winning run on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-6 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre.

Reyes led off with a double off New York reliever Adam Warren (1-4). Melky Cabrera dropped down a sacrifice bunt that third baseman Yangervis Solarte threw wide to first base, allowing Reyes to trot home for the walkoff victory.

It was Toronto's second straight victory over its American League East rival. The division-leading Blue Jays (44-35) moved 3 1/2 games ahead of third-place New York (39-37) with the win.

The Yankees have dropped four games in a row. Casey Janssen (2-0) worked the ninth inning for the victory.

Both teams were quiet over the first three innings before Toronto put up three runs in the fourth on New York starter David Phelps.

Adam Lind led off with an infield single and moved to second on a single by Edwin Encarnacion. After a Colby Rasmus strikeout, Navarro sent a 1-2 pitch into the second deck for his fourth home run of the season.

    The most value of this game for the Jays wasn't the win, but the lesson learned
    that the game isn't over when you're winning 6 to 0

    It must have made the Jays sick to their stomach at 6 to 6 in the 9th.

    This lesson will help them in the future on their way to the World Series to keep pressing seriously and not relax so much when they have a good lead.

    Thank you NewsTalk 1010

      @Peter Agreed.
      I was at someone's house and saw it was 6-0 Jays. I went home 20 minutes later, and almost fell out of my chair when I saw it was tied 6-6.
      One of the weakness the Jays have is failing to properly execute. They left the bases loaded when they had the chance to blow the game wide-open again- even though that was partially ruined because the umpires wasn't calling strikes properly when Gose was batting.
      They got lucky in the end during the bottom of the ninth. But the moral of the story is that they can't blow chances like that(i.e. leaving the bases loaded). They're going to have to figure out how to properly capitalize in those situations.

      Poor Mark Buerlhe{?} He pitches so well, but never can seem to get a win nowadays.

      On another note, the 8-0 comeback for the Jays last Friday was still epic. Still going to treasure that one for a while.
