Ex-Jays righty A.J. Burnett shook off a hostile Rogers Centre crowd and didn't allow a hit until the fourth, when he gave up three runs, which was more than enough for Roy Halladay. Halladay held the Yanks to five hits -- two by Johnny Damon, who scored the Bombers' lone run on Alex Rodriguez's RBI single in the seventh.
