NEW YORK - Blue Jay manager John Gibbons was sitting in his office, gazing at the silent television screen in the corner of the room but not paying much attention to what was on it.

“How is it possible to lose 14 games in a row here?” he said, shaking his head in wonder. “Don’t you have to win at least one, just by accident?”

Hours later the New York Yankees had made it 15 in a row against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium with a 7-3 victory. This one increases a winning streak that stretches back to the last time Toronto won a game here on September 19, 2012. But the period of domination by the Bronx Bombers over Toronto goes back even further. They are now 24-2 in their last 26 meetings here and 37-11 since they moved across 161st Avenue from their old stadium to the new one five years ago.

“We’ve led in a lot of those games,” said Gibbons. “It just defies logic that they get us every time.”
