Martin gets tiebreaking hit, Blue Jays beat Yankees 3-1

TORONTO -- Pinch-hitter Russell Martin singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees 3-1 on Monday night, snapping New York's road winning streak at six games.

Held scoreless for seven innings by Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley, the Blue Jays scored three in the eighth against relievers Chris Martin (0-1) and Dellin Betances.

Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista chased Martin with one-out singles before Edwin Encarnacion greeted Betances with a bloop double that landed just inside the foul line in shallow left.

One out later, Martin grounded an RBI single to third. A diving Headley made the stop, but first baseman Garrett Jones couldn't scoop Headley's low throw and the ball rolled away, allowing Encarnacion to score.

R.A. Dickey (1-3) allowed one run and three hits in eight innings for his first win in six starts. Brett Cecil finished for his second save.
