Jim Clancy settled down after allowing a leadoff home run and gave up nine hits, Jesse Barfield hit a two-run homer and George Bell had a single, two doubles and a triple last night in Toronto as the Blue Jays took a 6-2 victory over the slumping New York Yankees.
The Yankees have lost four games in a row and six of seven.
Bell, who was batting just .182 since being called up from the minors July 11, singled in the second inning. He tripled and scored on Alfredo Griffin's single in the fourth, hit a two-run double in the fifth and doubled in the seventh.
New York's Don Mattingly hit his third home run of the season on the third pitch of the game, but that was all the Yankees got off Clancy (12-6) until the ninth. Oscar Gamble tripled and Steve Kemp singled him home in the final inning. Clancy won his fourth straight and pitched his fifth complete game in a row.
Barfield's 14th home run of the season and 11th at home was an opposite-field drive to right center following Cliff Johnson's leadoff single in the second inning against Ron Guidry (12-7). Guidry gave up 14 hits, the most he's ever given up in a major-league game.
