NEW YORK, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Gregg Zaun's 14th-inning homer Friday night gave the Toronto Blue Jays a 5-4 victory over the New York Yankees, who wasted a four-run, ninth-inning rally.
New York fell 2 1/2 games behind Boston in the race for the American League East crown, but still leads Detroit by four games in the wild-card chase.
Roy Halladay carried a shutout into the ninth, but a throwing error by Toronto second baseman Aaron Hill on what would have been the third out led to the Yankees tying the game. Three of the four runs in the ninth were unearned.
With one away in the 14th, Zaun hit one out to right-center off Brian Bruney (3-2) -- the eighth pitcher of the night for the Yankees.
Joe Kennedy (4-9) got the victory with one inning of relief.
