TORONTO -- A solid start from Mark Buehrle against a team thats dominated him his entire career, and Jose Bautistas third home run in three games were gone to waste in one sloppy inning on Friday as the New York Yankees downed the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer as part of a five-run seventh inning for the Yankees (69-63) and Chase Headley added a solo shot in the ninth. Despite being 1-12 with a 6.15 ERA in his career against New York, Buehrle was on his game early, retiring the first eight Yankees he faced before second baseman Stephen Drew lined a ball over Kevin Pillars head in centre for a double in the top of the third. The first three innings Buehrle needed only 36 pitches -- including 24 for strikes -- and in the second he used just six pitches to put out Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. The Missouri native sat down 13 of the 15 batters he faced through five. Everything fell apart, however, in the seventh. With Toronto (67-66) leading 1-0, McCann opened the inning with a double to right field and Buehrle gave up his only walk of the night to the next hitter, Beltran, to put two on with nobody out. Brett Gardner then doubled home McCann and a throwing error by second baseman Steve Tolleson on the same play allowed Beltran to come home and make it 2-1 New York while Gardner was able to end up on third. Ichiro Suzuki singled next, which led to Aaron Loup taking over on the mound for Buehrle. Loup struck out Headley, who was pinch hitting for Drew, but another throwing error by catcher Dioner Navarro to third base in an attempt to pick off Gardner led to the Yankee left fielder coming home. Ellsbury then hit a two-run shot to make it 5-1. Buehrle went six innings, allowing seven hits and four earned runs to go along with four strikeouts. He dropped to 11-9 on the season and remains with just one victory since June 1st. Toronto earned back two runs in the bottom of the inning, cutting New Yorks lead to 5-3. Pillar doubled home Colby Rasmus, which ended the night for Yankee starter Chris Capuano, and a sacrifice fly to left by Cabrera brought in Pillar. Edwin Encarnacion had a great chance to bring Toronto closer, and end a personal slump, with Jose Reyes and Bautista on base, but middle reliever Adam Warren got him to fly out to right to end the inning. Encarnacion is now just 3 for 26 in 12 games since returning from injury. Headley made it 6-3 New York in the ninth inning when he took reliever Dustin McGowans first pitch deep over the right field wall. Two batters later Jeter looked to have brought home Ellsbury, but a 1:37 video review led to the umpire overruling his original safe call at home plate. Bautista hit his 27th home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth inning to make it 1-0 for Toronto. His blast over the left field wall moved him into a tie with Encarnacion for the team lead in long balls. Two batters after Bautista, Navarro laced a double down the left field line, but Capuano was able to avoid anymore trouble by striking out Danny Valencia to end the inning. In the fifth Rasmus doubled to right and was moved to third on a single by Pillar. With runners on the corners and just one out, Toronto had an opportunity to extend its lead. A Reyes pop up and Cabrera ground out, though, ended any threat. Rasmus opened the bottom of the third with a broken-bat single that saw the barrel of the bat nearly take out Capuano on the mound, but any chance for momentum was negated when Pillar hit into a 5-4-3 double play. Capuano (2-3) went 6 1/3 innings, giving up eight hits and two earned runs with four strikeouts to pick up his first win in four starts with New York since being acquired from the Boston Red Sox. David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 35th save of the season.

Steven Gerrards free kick and Daniel Sturridges deflected shot put Liverpool two goals clear by the 48th minute, but the pressure of being a serious challenger for the title for the first time since 2009 showed in the final half-hour. Ki Sung-yeungs 76th-minute header came amid a dominant spell for the relegation-threatened visitors and Liverpool survived some hair-raising moments in the last minutes to seal a seventh straight league win. Hope has turned into expectation at Anfield these past few weeks as Liverpool -- the dominant side in England in the late 1970s and 1980s -- revives its glory days to launch a title challenge against all the odds. Its players loss of composure in the latter stages was telling, and it is set to get even more nervy over the next few weeks with seven games left. "We have had a wonderful season until now, but there is still a way to go and the message to the supporters is to keep believing," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "As the season goes on, we will embrace the pressure and enjoy it." The victory lifted Liverpool into second place -- two points above Manchester City, which has two games in hand over the sides above them. But this was not as convincing as the Reds previous six victories, when they scored at least three goals every game to cement their status as the Premier League entertainers. "The game was set up for a big party, four or five goals," said Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, who added: "My friends in Uruguay didnt send me one text before the game ... they thought wed be destroyed." The game certainly looked like it would go that way when Sturridge found the net, via a deflection off Wes Brown, for his 20th goal of the campaign. That ensured two Liverpool players have scored at least 20 times in the same season for the first time in 50 years, when Roger Hunt and Ian St.dddddddddddd John were prolific in leading the line for the Reds. Luis Suarezs current haul stands at 28 goals and although the Uruguay international didnt add to his tally against Sunderland, he played a key role in the opener. Santiago Vergini escaped with just a yellow card when he hauled down Suarez when last man. Sunderland hadnt escaped, though, as Gerrard curled the resulting free kick in the 39th into the top corner for his ninth goal in 2014. Relief spread around Anfield but the nerves were to return midway through the second half, when Liverpool sat back and started to get sloppy in possession. The deficit was halved when Adam Johnson whipped in a corner that crept through a crowded area for fellow substitute Ki to stoop and head in at the far post. And Sunderland should have returned to the north east with a point as John OShea headed a gilt-edged chance wide just before injury time. Its another win chalked up by Liverpool as it seeks a first league title since 1990 and the clubs fans are starting to believe again. The way they cheered Liverpools players into Anfield before the game got Rodgers heart beating. "Our game started on the coach on the way in here," Rodgers said. "Any guys who watched Liverpool in the 70s and 80s coming in, it filled me with great pride being the manager of the club as we were driving in." Liverpool, which is unbeaten in 2014, has home games remaining against City and Chelsea. "We are in fantastic position," Gerrard said, "but we havent won anything yet." In Wednesdays other game, West Ham ended a three-game losing streak as an own-goal by James Chester secured a 2-1 win over 10-man Hull in a match between two mid-table teams. Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was shown a straight red card after charging into Mo Diame midway through the first half and Mark Noble dispatched the resulting penalty to give West Ham the lead. Nikica Jelavic equalized in the 48th. ' ' '
