TORONTO (AP) -Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead, two-run double in a four-run sixth inning and Andy Pettitte won consecutive starts for the first time this season as New York beat Toronto 5-4 on Monday.
The Yankees won their fourth straight and improved to 19-7 since the All-Star break, moved 12 games over .500 (62-50) for the first time this year and stopped Toronto's home winning streak at eight.
Pettitte (8-7) allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings with seven strikeouts and four walks. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his 18th save, striking out Alex Rios, Vernon Wells and Frank Thomas.
Melky Cabrera, who had three hits, tripled and scored on Johnny Damon's grounder in the third, but Thomas hit a two-run double in the bottom half and Wells singled in a run in the fifth.
Cano's double off Scott Downs (1-2) made it 4-3, and one out later, Cabrera hit an RBI single.
