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.
