NEW YORK (AP) - The Toronto Blue Jays rallied after wasting three leads to beat the New York Yankees 5-4 yesterday for their first series win in the Bronx in nearly two years. Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the ninth inning.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The New York Mets split a four-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers with a 2-0 win yesterday. Lucas Duda hit a two-run homer, and rookie Jacob deGrom pitched well into the seventh. DeGrom held the Brewers to four hits and two walks, exiting with one out in the seventh after allowing two singles. Vic Black got out of that jam.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 yesterday. Ryan Howard homered in his second game since a three-game benching, and scored the go-ahead run on an overturned call at the plate.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Despite coming off one of the best years of his 12-year NFL career, Giants kicker Josh Brown is facing stiff competition from free agent Brandon McManus. Brown says he's not surprised and that it's just part of the business of being a kicker. He connected on 23-of-26 field-goal tries and nailed all 31 of his PATs for 100 points last season.

CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - Michael Vick believes he can still start in the NFL. The New York Jets quarterback also believes he can still be a star. Right now, he's in line to back up Geno Smith this season. Just as he did last year in Philadelphia, he's doing everything he can as a high-profile mentor to help a young quarterback get better.

OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) - Bayern won the $1 million Haskell Invitational yesterday at Monmouth Park, extending trainer Bob Baffert's record for victories in the 3-year-old stakes to seven. Bayern was the dominant front running winner, pulling away by 7 1/4 lengths over Albano.
