Blue Jays open series with loss to Yankees

NEW YORK—Sensing the season’s dwindling days, the N.Y. Yankees opened their penultimate homestand by falling behind on Masahiro Tanaka’s seventh pitch of a sunny Labor Day afternoon.

But Jacoby Ellsbury turned the deficit into a lead on R.A. Dickey’s third offering of the day, and New York remained on the periphery of contention for a post-season berth with four weeks to go.

First round delayed

PRIDDIS, Alta.—Stephanie Meadow didn’t mind the inclement weather conditions during the first round of the LPGA’s Canadian Open yesterday.

After a lightning delay that lasted nearly three hours, Meadow didn’t miss a beat as she birdied her final two holes to take the clubhouse lead at six-under 66 before play eventually was suspended because of darkness.
