Sluggers at top of order fizzle as Blue Jays lose to Yanks

NEW YORK (AP) Pushing their best hitters to the top of the batting order has not worked out yet for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion combined to go 1 for 10 in Tuesday night's 6-0 loss to the New York Yankees, leaving them with a .224 batting average (13 for 58) and 11 RBIs in five games since manager John Gibbons shuffled his lineup.

"Well, the other strategy wasn't working. It's as simple as that," Gibbons said before the game. "Get your top guys up there in the first inning."
