NEW YORK -- Derek Jeters farewell tour. Family and friends in the stands. On the fringes of a playoff race. Marcus Stroman was making dream start, and it sure had a happy ending. Stroman pitched six gritty innings, Jose Bautista hit his eighth homer of the year against New York and the Toronto Blue Jays ended a season-worst six-game skid to beat the Yankees 6-3 Saturday and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. "It was an awesome environment," said the rookie right-hander who is from nearby Medford. "It was special, being from here, watching Jeter growing up. I definitely rank it pretty high." With eight games to play for both teams, Toronto is 5 1/2 games back for an AL wild card and the Yankees are 4 1/2. Seattle and Cleveland all played later Saturday night. Danny Valencia hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth, helping hand the Yankees their first loss of Jeters final homestand after two wins over Toronto. New York had won three in a row overall. With most of the 47,292 fans at Yankee Stadium standing and chanting "Der-ek Je-ter!" his every at-bat, the retiring captain doubled and singled for his third straight multihit game. He also scored his 1,920th run to pass suspended teammate Alex Rodriguez for ninth place on the career list. Jeter hit an RBI double down the left-field line off Brandon Morrow in the ninth to cut the lead to 6-3 as cameras flashed throughout the packed ballpark. Casey Janssen relieved and hit Brian McCann with a pitch before getting two outs for his 24th save. "The guy never stops fighting and believing in himself," manager Joe Girardi said of Jeter. "Its an attitude thats infectuous and its an attitude that you want in your players." Awaiting word on his appeal of a six-game suspension for throwing over the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph on Monday, Stroman (11-6) gave up two runs and eight hits. He struck out seven without allowing a walk. Bautista scored four times and reached base all five plate appearances, walking three times to pass 100 for the third time in his career. The All-Star right-fielder connected leading off the seventh against Chase Whitley, giving him 34 homers and 101 RBIs this year. His eight homers against New York are tied for most against one team this season, according to STATS. The Cubs Anthony Rizzo has eight against Cincinnati. "I think its a good performance that obviously helps in meaningful games in September," Bautista said, reflecting on his day. "Its going to be tough, but mathematically were still in it." Edwin Encarnacion had an RBI double in the first off Chris Capuano (2-4) but the Yankees took a lead with runs in the third and fourth. Jeter singled off the glove of diving second baseman Steve Tolleson and scored on McCanns single after advancing on a wild pitch in the third. FAKE OUT Yankees fans booed Bautista as he left the field at the end of the seventh inning after he caught the last out in right field, turned and faked tossing the ball into the bleachers. Bautista had a ball in his back pocket upon his return for the bottom of the eighth and flipped it into the crowd. A fan feigned giving it to a woman in a Blue Jays jersey and threw it right back onto the field. "At first I thought it was some innocent back and forth," he said. "But after the ball was thrown I decided not to continue to have the interaction because, what was going to happen next?" TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: 1B Adam Lind was out of the lineup because his "back locked up a little bit (Friday)," according to manager John Gibbons. Gibbons hopes the injury does not sideline Lind too long. Yankees: 1B Mark Teixeira was pinch hit for in the fifth inning. He left with a sore right wrist and will consult with the surgeon who operated on the wrist last year. ... CF Jacoby Ellsbury was out of the lineup a day after straining his right hamstring. UP NEXT Blue Jays: RHP Drew Hutchinson (10-12) takes the mound in the finale of the season series between the teams. Yankees: Masahiro Tanaka (12-4) is scheduled to make his first start since July 8. Hes has been out with a partial tear of an elbow ligament and is trying to avoid Tommy John surgery. LEANING LEFT The Blue Jays started a lineup against Capuano with two switch-hitters, Dioner Navarro and Dalton Pompey, and seven righties. That left Toronto with a bench of eight left-handed bats. Matt Adams Jersey . Just ask last seasons Supporters Shield winners, the New York Red Bulls, who were resoundingly defeated last weekend by a rampant Vancouver Whitecaps in a match which produced two contenders for MLS Goal of the Week from Sebastian Fernandez and Pedro Morales. Bob Gibson Jersey . -- Isaiah Pead took a stutter step forward, then raced to the left sideline and travelled 60 yards up the field before finally getting tripped up by a leg tackle. http://www.baseballcardinalsauthority.com/Roger-Maris-Jersey/. After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Ken Boyer Jersey .500 ball against teams with winning records, so they needed a huge lift from somebody Tuesday night in a matchup of division leaders. Stan Musial Jersey .L. - Defending womens champion Alberta improved to 3-0 at the Canadian junior curling championships with a 10-3 win over Ontario in Sundays afternoon draw.NEW ORLEANS - Utah coach Quinn Snyder says Derrick Favours sprained right ankle will sideline him for a second straight game.Favours injury occurred last Friday night against Miami and he was unable to play in Utahs 93-84 loss on Sunday in Washington.The 6-foot-10 Favours has been playing both centre and forward, averaging 15.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.Snydeer says Rudy Gobert will start at centre on Tuesday night at New Orleans.dddddddddddd.
