Yankees Sweep First Place Blue Jays

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — David Phelps turned in a quality start while Carlos Beltran drove in two runs as the Yankees swept Toronto in a three-game set on Thursday. It was the 16th consecutive win for New York (38-33) over the Blue Jays (41-33) at Yankee Stadium.
Phelps (3-4) picked up the win, tossing seven innings and allowing just two runs. The righty struck out seven in his outing but did give up a two-run homer to Melkey Cabrera in the third that tied the game at 2-2. New York quickly took the lead back when Beltran hit a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Ellsbury, before he added another RBI in the fifth with a ground rule double.
After Derek Jeter drove in a run with a ground out in the sixth, Yangervis Solarte worked a pinch-hit walk in the seventh that made it a 6-2 lead. Sean Kelley gave up a two-run blast in the top of the eighth to Edwin Encarnacion that closed the gap to two. Matt Thornton then allowed a base hit in the ninth before Adam Warren entered the game and picked up his second save of the year.
Drew Hutchinson (5-5) lasted just four and one-third innings, giving up four runs on six hits. The sweep tied New York with the Blue Jays in the loss column and moved them just a game and a half out of first in the American League East.
