TORONTO — Pinch-hitter Russell Martin singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees 3-1 on Monday night, snapping New York's road winning streak at six games.
Held scoreless for seven innings by Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley, the Blue Jays scored three in the eighth against relievers Chris Martin (0-1) and Dellin Betances.
Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista chased Martin with one-out singles before Edwin Encarnacion greeted Betances with a bloop double that landed just inside the foul line in shallow left.
One out later, Martin grounded an RBI single to third. A diving Headley made the stop, but first baseman Garrett Jones couldn't scoop Headley's low throw and the ball rolled away, allowing Encarnacion to score an unearned run.
Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (1-3) allowed one run and three hits in eight innings for his first win in six starts. Brett Cecil finished for his second save.
New York opened the scoring in the seventh when Carlos Beltran hit a leadoff double and went to third on Stephen Drew's grounder. After Headley walked, Beltran scored on Jones' RBI grounder.
Whitley allowed six hits, walked none and struck out six.
Devon Travis singled to begin the bottom half and went to third on Donaldson's double, but Whitley kept it scoreless by getting Bautista to ground out, fanning Encarnacion and retiring Kevin Pillar on a pop up.
