TORONTO - And so continues the consistently inconsistent summer of discontent for Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison.

The split personality of his performances can be catalogued over months, weeks, at home, on the road and from game-to-game. In this latest start Wednesday against the New York Yankees, his warring personalities manifested themselves from one inning to the next.

The Yankees scored against Hutchison only in one inning – the third – but that was quite enough to prevent a Blue Jays sweep of this three-game series with a 5-3 victory.

In Hutchison’s five previous starts at the Rogers Centre this year, he had a 1-3 record to go with an 8.72 ERA. On the road, he’s 4-2 with a 2.23 ERA. In this one, he shut out the Bronx Bombers in five of his six innings, but it all got away from him in that fateful third.
