at Toronto 14, New York 3: "How many did they end up with?" Derek Jeter asked after the Yankees' playoff hopes took another hit. "I don't even know."

Halladay (15-9) improved to 13-5 in 30 games against the Yankees, yielding three runs and five hits in seven innings. He walked two and matched a season high with nine strikeouts.
