TORONTO—Brandon McCarthy gave up a trio of homers and the Yankees saw a three-run lead evaporate in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays in Sunday’s series finale at Rogers Centre.
New York dropped two of three in the series and finished its seven-game road trip with a 3-4 mark, after losing its final two contests in Toronto.
I thought the Yankees probably needed a 5-2 road trip to keep their already meager postseason hopes alive. Instead we got 3-4 and a Masahiro Tanaka setback.
At least we can watch Derek Jeter closing out his career as shell of what he once was.
