Mark Teixeira homered and drove in three runs to power the New York Yankees to a 5-3 victory over Toronto that denied the Blue Jays a series sweep.

Jacoby Ellsbury added three hits, including an RBI single, and Hiroki Kuroda tossed 6 1/3 effective innings to help the Yankees halt a four-game skid that included losses in each of the first two tests of this three-game set.

Kuroda (5-5) shook off a leadoff homer to Jose Reyes to hold the Blue Jays to three runs while scattering eight hits and earn his first win since May 28.

Reyes had a big night in defeat, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored, while Melky Cabrera ended 2-for-4 with a two-run single for AL East leader Toronto.

Drew Hutchison (5-6) was handed the loss after permitting four runs in six innings of work.
