TORONTO, April 20 (UPI) -- Pitcher Aaron Loup's 11th-inning error on Ichiro Suzuki's sacrifice bunt allowed two runs to score Saturday, giving the New York Yankees a 5-3 win over Toronto.

With the score tied 3-3 in the 11th, Vernon Wells led off with a single against Loup (1-1) and went to second on a Francisco Cervelli hit. That brought up Ichiro, who laid down a sacrifice bunt to the left of the mound.

Loup picked it up cleanly but fired wildly to third base, allowing both Wells and Cervelli to come home.

The miscue made a winner of Shawn Kelley (1-0), who had recorded the final two outs of the 10th inning.

Mariano Rivera corralled his fifth save for the Yankees, who posted a fifth win in six games while clinching their three-game road series.

Wells finished 3-for-5 with a solo homer and Kevin Youkilis drove in a pair of runs for New York.

Melky Cabrera drove in two runs for the Blue Jays.
