ICHIRO DROVE 5 AND GARCIA WON IN TORONTO
Mon, 13 Aug 2012 11:42 PM EDT

Ichiro Suzuki had a rare start in center field on Friday night and Curtis Granderson had almost all of the night off.

It worked out simply fine for the N.Y Yankees. Ichiro drove in 5 runs and the Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 10-4 before 42,610 at Rogers Centre.

The offensive help guaranteed that right-hander Freddy Garcia’s efficient effort of holding the Blue Jays to 2 runs over 6 innings on just 78 pitches wouldn’t be wasted.

It was the 1st time Ichiro has played center field since 2008 when he was with the Mariners who traded him to the N.Y Yankees on July 23.

Ichiro, usually a right fielder, has additionally played left field for the New York Yankees.

“It had been a while so I used to be a little nervous but there weren’t any tough balls at me today,” Ichiro claimed. “Everything went well.

“Sometimes I get up to the plate and they say ‘Playing left field, Ichiro Suzuki for the Yankees.’ It kind of takes me some time to recollect ‘Oh yeah, I’m on the Yankees.” Basketball odds

Ichiro was back in right in the 8th inning after Granderson was sent into the game to play center.

“He has a talent for finding ways to get on base,” Yankees catcher Russell Martin expounded. “He kind of solidifies the bottom of our lineup.”

In the meantime, Garcia (6-5) held the Toronto Blue Jays to 5 hits and no walks while striking out 4.

“He’s the same guy each time he is going out there,” Martin said. “Today it seemed like he had pretty good command of all his stuff.”

Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero (8-9) allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and 3 walks over 7 innings. The Toronto Blue Jays committed 2 errors behind him as he lost his 8th consecutive decision though he has pitched better in recent starts.

Kelly Johnson drove in 2 runs for the Toronto with a homer and a double.

Mark Teixeira hit his 22nd homer of the season on the 1st pitch of the 8th inning thrown by reliever Steve Delabar and the N.Y Yankees scored 2 more in the inning to go ahead 6-2.

Blue Jays (53-59) have lost 4 games in a row and the New York Yankees (66-46) have won three in a row.

“I felt good,” Romero announced. “Felt like I finished strong. I got back to the delivery I’ve been attempting to find. I cannot say enough about (pitching coach) Bruce Walton. He’s helped me a lot.

Blue Jays executive John Farrell recounted, “I thought Ricky got better as the night went along. It appeared the rhythm of his fastball was much better, threw some good curveballs to mix in as well as well as a cutter.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi related, “I like the way we are playing. I love the fight in our men and I like the way they are going about their business. We swung the bats fairly well and made use of some walks early. Our men were patient and that was significant.”
