New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter picked up two singles to move into eighth-place on the all-time Major League hits list, with 3,320, while helping the Yanks beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 on Sunday at the Rogers Centre.

Drew Hutchison, fresh off an opening-season victory last week in Tampa Bay, picked up the loss after giving up six runs on six hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings.

Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia picked up the victory as New York improved to 3-3. The Jays fell to 3-4 on the season.

The Yankees drew first blood in the opening inning when Hutchison walked lead-off hitter Brett Gardner on a 3-2 pitch. Gardner was brought home via a grounder by Jacoby Ellsbury. Later in the inning former Jay Kelly Johnson hit a two-RBI double to centre, over Melky Cabrera’s head, scoring Brian McCann and Alfonso Soriano, who got on base after Hutchison plunked him, 3-0 New York.
