TORONTO. The New York Yankees won their sixth consecutive game by beating The Toronto Blue Jays in an amazing game 3-1 but it was little consolation for officially being eliminated from the post-season race to the dismay of their many fans around the world, who were praying for a miracle.

Jason Giambi homered and Robinson Cano also drove in a run for the Yankees (86-71), who were eliminated from the Major League Baseball playoffs when the Boston Red Sox (92-65) registered a 5-4 win over Cleveland, also on Tuesday.

En route to tying his career-high for wins in a season, pitcher Mike Mussina (19-9) tossed five scoreless innings while posting six strikeouts.

Five relievers hurled the final four innings, including Mariano Rivera, who recorded his 38th save with a 1-2-3 ninth.

The Blue Jays left eight runners on base.
