Yankees' losing streak stretched to 6 in Tampa Bay

Sam Fuld and B.J. Upton hit two-run homers to help the Tampa Bay Rays hand the New York Yankees their sixth consecutive loss, 6-5 on Monday.
It's the first time the Yankees have lost this many consecutive games since a seven-game skid in April 2007.
Yankees starter A.J Burnett had a four-run advantage before imploding in the sixth. After Fuld homered and Matt Joyce drove in a run with a single, Upton ended Burnett's night with his two-run drive that put Tampa Bay up 6-5.
Burnett (4-3) allowed six runs and eight hits over 5 2-3 innings.
Juan Cruz (2-0) pitched a scoreless sixth for the win. Kyle Farnsworth got the final three outs for his eighth save.
Blue Jays 4, Tigers 2
At Detroit, Kyle Drabek pitched seven strong innings as Toronto snapped Detroit's seven-game winning streak.
Drabek (2-3) allowed one run despite walking six, and gave up three hits and struck out two. Frank Francisco pitched the ninth for his fourth save, allowing a solo homer to Jhonny Peralta.
Tigers starter Max Scherzer remained at 6-0 after pitching seven innings and allowing a run in a no-decision. Toronto won the game with three runs off Joaquin Benoit (1-3) in the eighth. Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion started the inning with singles, and Aaron Hill made it 2-1 with a double.
Juan Rivera and J.P. Arencibia followed with sacrifice flies to give the Blue Jays a three-run lead.
