Yankees Score Five Runs on Three Homers in Win Over Blue Jays

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- Vernon Wells, Robinson Cano and Francisco Cervelli hit home runs to rally the New York Yankees to a 5-3 Major League Baseball win against the Toronto Blue Jays, whose manager was ejected.

Wells hit a solo home run in the second inning after Edwin Encarnacion smacked a two-run homer for the Blue Jays in the first and Brett Lawrie added a solo home run in the second last night to give the Blue Jays a 3-0 lead at Yankee Stadium.

Cano, who has seven home runs this season, hit a three-run shot in the third and Cervelli homered in the fourth for the Yankees (12-9).

“I think people who watch baseball are not surprised,” Gardner said of Cano. “He’s a special hitter. He’s a special player. He’s fun to play with.”

Hiroki Kuroda (3-1) allowed three runs on six hits in six innings, while Mariano Rivera got his seventh save by striking out two in a perfect ninth inning.

Mark Buehrle (1-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays (9-14).

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was tossed from the game by second base umpire Jeff Kellogg in the bottom of the seventh inning for arguing a reversal of a call at first base that gave New York’s Ben Francisco an infield hit.

Toronto manager John Gibbons was ejected in the seventh inning after umpires overturned a call at first, giving Ben Francisco an infield hit.
