The Yankees got Alex Rodriguez back today, but his 2-for-5 day wasn’t enough to overcome Phil Hughes‘ poor start as the Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-3, ending their winning streak at eight games.

Here are some highlights:

  • Hughes allowed three home runs for the second time this season (last time was July 4, also against Toronto).
  • With an 0-for-4 day, Derek Jeter is now batting .154 over his last 20 games.
  • Nick Swisher, day-to-day with a knee injury, pinch hit and went 0-for-1.
  • Austin Kearns, day-to-day with a thumb injury, came in as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning.
  • Don’t blame the bottom of the order for this one; Greg Golson and Ramiro Pena combined to go 3-for-6.
  • Brett Cecil is now 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in four starts against the Yankees this season.

The Rays also lost so they remain 2.5 games behind the Yankees. Up next are the Baltimore Orioles.
