In baseball, Toronto blanked the Yankees 2-0. The Blue Jays dealt the Yanks their fourth straight loss and dropped them 3 ½ games behind in the wild-card race.

Elsewhere, Baltimore beat Boston 3-2 last night. That left the Red Sox's magic number at three for winning the AL East.

Texas passed Tampa Bay 7-1. The Texas Rangers put a halt to their seven-game losing streak while moving back into a tie with Tampa Bay for the two American League wild-card berths.
