Yanks win again; Sox down a half-game
The Red Sox once again got no help from the Toronto Blue Jays, who continued playing their way right out of playoff contention in the Bronx.
The Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Jays with an 8-1 thumping this afternoon. New York took the lead in the first on a three-run home run by Jason Giambi, and Cory Lidle went six strong innings in his Yankee debut.
Bobby Abreu had three hits and scored two runs in his third game with New York. The win put the Yankees a half-game in front of the Red Sox, who complete their four-game series with the Cleveland Indians tonight. Toronto has now fallen 8 1/2 games out of first place.
