TORONTO, April 21 (UPI) -- Brett Lawrie stroked a go-ahead, two-run double during a sixth-inning rally Sunday that carried the Toronto Blue Jays over the New York Yankees 8-4.

Trailing 4-2 entering the inning, the Blue Jays put Adam Lind and J.P. Arencibia aboard with none out, chasing Yankees starter Ivan Nova.

Boone Logan (0-1) entered and Colby Rasmus greeted him with a run-scoring single to cut the deficit.

Lawrie followed against David Phelps by lacing a pitch over the third-base bag and down the left-field line, scoring the go-ahead runs.

He later came home with a head-first slide on Melky Cabrera's hit to close out the four-run frame.

Cabrera finished 3-for-4 while Arencibia also smacked a solo homer as Toronto avoided a three-game home sweep.

Brett Cecil (1-0) earned the victory with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.

Chris Stewart went 2-for-3 with a solo homer for New York.
