NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Gonzalez got robbed, then got rooked. Next time up - yep - he got more than even.
Gonzalez hit a go-ahead single in the 11th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays broke loose, beating the New York Yankees 6-1 Friday to end a five-game losing streak.
" I got one more chance," Gonzalez said.
The Blue Jays trailed 1-0 when Gonzalez opened the eighth with a long drive that left fielder Brett Gardner caught while banging into the wall.
It was 1-all when Gonzalez got another opportunity in the ninth, batting with two outs and a runner on first. He got nicked in the left forearm by a pitch from Mariano Rivera - and later showed off a pink mark to prove it - but plate umpire Mark Wegner ruled a foul ball.
Toronto manager Cito Gaston came out to argue and Wegner consulted with two umpires before letting the call stand. Rivera struck out Gonzalez with the next pitch.
" It did hit my bat, after it hit my arm,'' Gonzalez said. " But what can you do?"
Crew chief Dale Scott said the umpires didn't have enough evidence to overturn the ruling.
Lyle Overbay opened the Toronto 11th with a single that skidded past second baseman Robinson Cano . A single by John Buck , a sacrifice by Jarrett Hoffpauir and an intentional walk loaded the bases for Gonzalez, who lined his single over leaping third baseman Alex Rodriguez .
" It was close. I thought he might get it," Gonzalez said.
The Blue Jays, who lead the majors in home runs, won despite going without a homer for the fifth straight game. The Yankees were held to five hits, all singles.
" Everyone has a chance to step up and have good days," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
" We've had a tough time scoring lately,'' he said. " Every offense goes through it."
Burnett began July with 6 2-3 shutout innings, following a June in which he went 0-5 with an 11.35 ERA. His slump coincided with the absence of pitching coach Dave Eiland , who was out for personal reasons.
Burnett gave up four hits and worked around three walks, two wild pitches and a hit batter. He got a quick visit from Eiland after a pair of walks to open the third, and Burnett retired the next three batters.
" It's good to hear his voice," Burnett said.
Burnett got a big ovation when he was pulled in the seventh. He acknowledged the cheers by holding up his glove in his pitching hand.
" I thought I was able to make pitches when I needed to," he said.
Cecil limited the Yankees to one run and four hits in six innings despite walking six. He escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the third when he recovered from a 2-0 count to strike out Rodriguez, then fanned Cano and retired Jorge Posada on a grounder.
Cecil said a visit from pitching coach Bruce Walton helped. The lefty said Walton told him to " throw as hard as you can. If you're going to get beat, get beat with your best."
Rodriguez put the Yankees ahead with a sacrifice fly in the first.
NOTES: The Blue Jays made a series of roster moves. They put RHP Shaun Marcum on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his pitching elbow, called up LHP Mark Rzepczynski from Triple-A Las Vegas, selected the contract of 3B Edwin Encarnacion from Las Vegas and optioned Hoffpauir to the Triple-A team. Also, OF Jeremy Reed refused his outright assignment and became a free agent. ... Rivera made his 16th straight scoreless appearance. ... Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira slipped after a swing in the 10th and stumbled out of the batter's box. He was OK. ... Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson made a backhanded grab on Overbay's shot in the fourth.
