Sabathia tagged for three runs in fourth

Well, that wasn't pretty.

Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia gave up three runs in the top of the fourth inning, allowing the Toronto Blue Jays to bat around and take a 4-1 lead on Monday night.

Sabathia surrendered RBI singles to catcher J.P. Arencibia and center fielder Rajai Davis, making the score 3-1, and third baseman John McDonald executed a perfect squeeze bunt up the first-base line to plate designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion, giving the Jays a three-run cushion.

McDonald was able to reach safely on the play because Robinson Cano failed to handle Mark Teixeira's flip. It was Cano's fifth error of the season -- two more than he had in all of 2010.

Catcher Russell Martin has provided the Yankees' lone run so far on Tuesday night. He drilled his ninth home run of the season off Jays left-hander Ricky Romero with one out in the bottom of the second.
