TORONTO, May 16 (UPI) -- Homers by J.P. Arencibia and Edwin Encarnacion accounted for five early runs Wednesday, sending the Toronto Blue Jays to an 8-1 pasting of the New York Yankees.

Kyle Drabek limited the Yankees to three hits over seven innings to hand New York its third loss in four outings. The Blue Jays ended a three-game skid.

Arencibia hit a two-run homer in the second and Encarnacion produced a three-run blast in the third. It was Encarnacion's 13th home run of the season. Jose Bautista added a solo shot for the Blue Jays in the fifth and Kelly Johnson had another in the seventh.

Drabek (3-4) gave up a lone run while striking out five and walking four.

Robinson Cano doubled in the sixth and scored New York's run on a single by Mark Teixeira.

Hiroki Kuroda (3-5) allowed seven runs on eight hits while throwing 101 pitches in five innings to take the loss.
