Colon had allowed just one earned run -- courtesy of a long home run by right fielder Jose Bautista -- through five, but came unraveled in the sixth.

He allowed a leadoff double to center fielder Corey Patterson, then intentionally walked Bautista to put runners on first and second. Cleanup hitter Yunel Escobar bunted them over, Colon intentionally passed left fielder Juan Rivera to load the bases, and second baseman Aaron Hill followed with an RBI single, giving the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead.

Colon walked designated hitter Eric Thames to force in another run, and Arcenibia followed by driving Colon's first-pitch 94 mph fastball into right-center, clearing the bases and giving the Blue Jays a commanding five-run edge.

Colon's line: 6 IP, 7 H, 6 ER, 4 BB, 8 SO, 1 HR

The 37-year-old's ERA now stands at 3.77, and unless the Yankees can mount a comeback, Colon will drop to 2-3 on the season.
