A-Rod returns, Yanks’ winning streak ends

Alex Rodriguez returned to the field and lineup on his first day of eligibility, but the Blue Jays slugged three homers off Phil Hughes en route to a 7-3 win over the Yankees. The loss snapped an eight-game winning streak.

Best of All: A-Rod went 2-for-5 with an RBI in his return, inching closer to the 100-RBI plateau (98).

Brett Gardner and Ramiro Pena added two hits apiece; Gardner added a sac fly and Pena scored a run.

Worst of All: Hughes allowed two homers on 0-2 counts and the third came on a first-pitch cutter.

Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson each went hitless in four ABs.

Coming Up: The Yankees stay at home to host the Orioles to start the week and will visit Texas over the weekend.
