The Toronto Blue Jays failed to extend their win streak to 12 after losing to the New York Yankees 4-3 at Rogers Centre Friday night.
The Jays were holding a 3-0 lead until the Yankees scored four runs in the top of the 8th inning.
David Price was relieved by rookie Aaron Sanchez, who took the loss, to fall to 6-5 on the season.
Blue Jays have not only been the talk of Toronto, but also in all of baseball.
They had won 14 of their last 15 games heading into game one of a three games series against New York. Also, they had matched their longest win-streak of all-time with 11 in a row for the second time this season, which is the first time a team has done that since the Cleveland Indians in 1954.
Game two of the series will take place at 1:07 p.m. on Saturday afternoon as Marco Estrada takes the mound for Toronto versus New York’s Masahiro Tanaka.
The Jays are now half a game back of the Yanks for first place in the American League East and currently sit in a wild card position.
Meantime, there are rumours that the Yankees could be interested in acquiring former Blue Jay Jose Reyes, who was traded to the Rockies for Troy Tulowitzki, as he is now available to be traded after clearing waivers in Colorado.
