TORONTO - (AP) -- Jacoby Ellsbury and Chase Headley homered, and the New York Yankees beat the slumping Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Friday night.

Chris Capuano (2-3) pitched 6 1-3 innings in his first win in seven starts since joining the Yankees. The veteran left-hander was acquired last month in a trade with Colorado.

David Robertson got the final four outs for his 35th save in 38 chances.

Jose Bautista homered and Dioner Navarro had three hits, but the Blue Jays dropped to 7-17 in August. Mark Buehrle (11-9) pitched six-plus innings while falling to 1-13 in his career against New York.
