Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays rode an early surge to a 7-2 win over the New York Yankees in the rubber match of a three-game series at Rogers Centre.

The Blue Jays wasted little time jumping on a suddenly scuffling Hiroki Kuroda (11-10), who for the second straight start allowed seven runs, five of which were earned, and nine hits.

Toronto did all its damage over the first three innings, with a costly error by New York catcher Chris Stewart helping Toronto's cause.

The Yankees had a difficult time producing any offense against Blue Jays starter Todd Redmond (2-2), who pitched 5 2/3 innings. Redmond did walk four, but he held New York to three hits and two fourth-inning runs.
