Yankees rally for sweep of DH over the Blue Jays

By HOWIE RUMBERG

NEW YORK (AP) - Jayson Nix hit a tying homer in the seventh inning and a game-ending single in the ninth, lifting the Yankees to their second comeback victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, 3-2 in the nightcap for a doubleheader sweep.

In the opener, Robinson Cano and Chris Stewart each hit three-run homers to rally the Yankees from four runs down to beat the Blue Jays 8-4. Toronto lost slugger Jose Bautista to a sore hip early in the game.

Cano had an RBI single in the second game and had six hits and five RBIs for New York in the two games.

Ichiro Suzuki singled and doubled in the first game, leaving him one shy of 4,000 combined hits during his careers in Japan and the major leagues.

With fans standing and chanting "Ichi-ro!" in the eighth, he grounded out. Suzuki pinch ran in the second game and scored the winning run.
