DUNEDIN, Fla. – New York Yankees pitcher Freddy Garcia sustained a bruised right hand in the fourth inning Wednesday when he was hit by a comebacker off the bat of Edwin Encarnacion, who also hit two home runs for the Toronto Blue Jays in a 7-5 victory.
Garcia, who allowed Encarnacion's homer in the second inning, immediately came out of the game and was taken to Tampa, where Dr. Allen Miller, the Yankees' Tampa-based orthopedic surgeon, treated him. X-rays were negative.
Encarnacion, safe at first, scored on J.P. Arencibia's second homer, off Cory Wade, to put the Blue Jays ahead 3-1. Encarnacion then homered off Manny Banuelos in the fifth.
