NEW YORK, May 17 (UPI) -- Hiroki Kuroda gave up two hits over eight innings Friday and combined with Preston Claiborne to bring the New York Yankees a 5-0 win over Toronto.

Jason Nix drove in two runs in helping the Yankees snap a two-game skid.

Kuroda (6-2) struck out five and walked only one while winning for the fourth time in five starts. Claiborne escaped a ninth-inning jam in a non-save situation to preserve the shutout.

Toronto had a four-game winning streak snapped.

Kuroda gave up a double to Adam Lind to open the game and a seventh-inning single to Edwin Encarnacion.

Nix came through with two sacrifice flies, the first one giving New York a 2-0 lead in the fifth and the other coming during a three-run seventh.

Austin Romine also contributed a run-scoring double in the seventh and Brett Gardner had an RBI single.

The loss went to Mark Buerhle (1-3), who gave up all five runs on six hits in six innings.
