• Capuano looks to help Yankees continue Wild Card push
  • Staring down a six-game suspension for throwing at an opposing hitter, Marcus Stroman will make his scheduled start against the Yankees on Saturday while his pending appeal rests with the league. He'll look to help the Blue Jays snap a six-game losing streak, while the Yanks, who are 4 1/2 games behind the Royals for the second AL Wild Card spot, go for their fourth straight victory behind lefty Chris Capuano.

  • Yanks win third straight behind Ellsbury, Kuroda
  • On a chilly Friday night, the Yankees continued their strong effort on the mound but at least temporarily found life with their bats. Jacoby Ellsbury contributed three RBIs, and New York pelted Toronto starter Mark Buehrle for eight hits, edging out the Blue Jays in a 5-3 victory at Yankee Stadium.

  • Ellsbury strains right hamstring hustling down line
  • After beating out an errant throw from Jose Reyes with the bases loaded in the fourth inning of the Yankees' 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays, Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the bag in some pain. He remained in to run the bases, but manager Joe Girardi pulled Ellsbury before the fifth inning with a strained right hamstring and the center fielder underwent an MRI soon after.

  • Tanaka likely to throw 70-75 pitches in Sunday start
  • After a successful bullpen session Thursday and some more long-toss throwing Friday, Masahiro Tanaka appears ready to make his first start since early July on Sunday.

  • Kelley not pleased with Bautista's reaction after homer
  • Shawn Kelley will admit that he missed his location. His batterymate, Francisco Cervelli, will admit that he called the wrong pitch. Either way, the combination resulted in Jose Bautista smacking Kelley's high fastball into the left-field seats to tie Thursday's game in the eighth inning. But it's what came directly after Bautista's swing that may have angered Kelley the most, when the Blue Jays slugger slammed his bat down and began cursing as he rounded the bases.

  • Jeter thanks fans in special commercial, then homers
  • Derek Jeter's final homestand will be met with many emotional goodbyes from fans over the next week. But before he even made it to the ballpark Thursday, a Gatorade commercial anticipating and celebrating the Yankees captain's farewell already had made its way onto the Internet. Jeter then thanked the fans with his bat in a way he hadn't the entire season, belting his first homer at Yankee Stadium in the sixth inning.

  • Yanks walk off on error to gain in Wild Card
  • Chase Headley hit a grounder that rolled under first baseman Adam Lind's glove in the bottom of the ninth inning, scoring Antoan Richardson from third base to give the Yankees a 3-2 walk-off victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.

  • Beltran available off the bench for Yankees
  • Carlos Beltran wasn't in the Yankees' clubhouse and didn't take batting practice with the team before Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, but manager Joe Girardi said he was available to play off the bench.

  • A clean win: McCarthy leads Yankees in St. Pete
  • There was no spillover from the previous evening's incidents, just clean ball, and Brandon McCarthy wrapped up seven strong frames with an immaculate inning as the Yankees defeated Tampa Bay, 3-2, snapping a three-game losing streak. They remained six games back in the American League Wild Card race.

  • Betances breaks Mo's single-season K's mark by reliever
  • After recording two strikeouts in his scoreless eighth inning of Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field, Dellin Betances owns the Yankees' single-season strikeout mark for relievers, breaking Mariano Rivera's 1996 record of 130.
