TORONTO - Another full house at the Rogers Centre.

An 8-4 win over the New York Yankees.

Blue Jays’ Colby Rasmus singling off a lefty in the four-run sixth.

Brett Lawrie shedding rust to pull a two-run double inside the third-base line.

Catcher J.P. Arencibia hitting a double and a two-run homer as the Jays scored six times in the sixth and seventh to salvage the final game of the three-game series in front of 45,575 fans on Sunday afternoon.

And, oh yeah, with the win ...

Your Toronto Blue Jays were the best last-place team money can buy.

“Some people may be in a panic, but there isn’t any in this room,” said Jays starting pitcher Brandon Morrow. “As bad as we have been the first 19 games, we could turn the record (8-11) around over the next 19 games.

“We’re confident in our abilities. We could win 10 in a row.”
