Bronx, NY (Sports Network) – New York has the Toronto Blue Jays’ number at
Yankee Stadium.

At this point, the Bronx Bombers need all the help they can get.

Andy Pettitte tossed six innings of one-run ball and Curtis Granderson smacked
a solo homer in the Yankees’ 5-3 win over the Blue Jays to sweep a four-game
set.

New York has won 13 in a row and 22 of its past 24 meetings against its AL
East rivals from north of the border in the Bronx.

Pettitte (9-9) allowed four hits and three walks to pick up the win for the
Yankees, who are six games behind the Boston Red Sox for the AL East lead and
3 1/2 back of the Oakland Athletics for the AL’s second wild-card spot.

J.A. Happ (3-3) surrendered four runs on three hits and five walks over 5 1/3
frames for the Toronto, which has dropped five consecutive contests.
