Arencibia, Cecil homer for Jays in win over Yanks

Published:

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) -- J.P. Arencibia and Travis Snider homered and Brett Cecil gave up one hit over two scoreless innings Thursday as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 6-1.

The Yankees learned earlier in the day that All-Star setup man David Robertson sprained his right foot when he stumbled on the stairs at his house. It's not known how long he will be out.

Adam Lind opened the second inning against Ivan Nova with a double to left-center, took third on Brett Lawrie's single and scored on Colby Rasmus' grounder to shortstop before Arencibia launched a drive over the left field wall.

The Blue Jays added two runs in the third on singles by Kelly Johnson, Jose Bautista and Lind off Nova, and Bautista scored on a passed ball by Francisco Cervelli.
