Johnson gets big support in Blue Jays' rout

Tools

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Josh Johnson allowed one run over three innings, Maicer Izturis had five RBIs, and the Toronto Blue Jays routed the New York Yankees 17-5 on Thursday.

Johnson, coming off a start last Friday in which he retired all 11 batters he faced, gave up two hits and struck out five. The right-hander is part of a revamped Toronto rotation that includes other offseason additions R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle.

The biggest challenge Johnson faced was sitting in the dugout for long stretches during a pair of big Toronto innings on a windy day with a game time temperature near 60.

Melky Cabrera drove in four runs for the Blue Jays, who lead 15-1 after two innings.

Cabrera had an RBI double and two-run double, and Izturis drove in three runs with double during the Blue Jays' nine-run first against Jose Ramirez and Adam Warren.
