Nova snaps skid as Yankees beat Blue Jays 5-2

Ivan Nova snapped a five-start winless streak, Casey McGehee hit a three-run home run and the New York Yankees won their fourth straight game Saturday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2.

Derek Jeter had two hits, boosting his AL-leading total to 150 and joining Hank Aaron as the only players to record 17 straight seasons with at least 150 hits.

Rajai Davis had two hits and scored twice but it wasn't enough as slumping Toronto suffered its fifth consecutive defeat and its 11th loss in 13 games.

Nova came in 0-3 with an 8.36 ERA in five starts since winning at Boston on July 8, but was sharp against an injury-depleted Blue Jays lineup, setting down the first nine batters in order before Davis singled to open the fourth.
