Toronto ends 17-game Bronx skid, beats Yanks 6-4

Dan Johnson drove in four runs with a go-ahead infield hit and a three-run homer, helping the Toronto Blue Jays end their 17-game losing streak at Yankee Stadium with a 6-4 victory over New York on Saturday.
Brian McCann's two-run homer put the Yankees ahead in the fourth, but Johnson drove in the tiebreaking run in the seventh with a 70-foot bloop that fell in front of second baseman Brian Roberts, who didn't charge the ball.
Johnson's ninth-inning drive off Jeff Francis, which extended the lead to 6-2, was his first homer since hitting three for the Chicago White Sox at Cleveland on Oct. 3, 2012. Johnson also famously saved Tampa Bay on the final night of the 2011 regular season with a tying two-run, two-strike, ninth-inning homer off the Yankees' Corey Wade.
