Thornton allowed five runs on seven hits with two walks with four strikeouts across 3.1 innings during a no-decision against the Yankees on Wednesday.

The Blue Jays spotted Thornton a five-run lead in the first inning, but it was gone by the time Thornton left during the fourth frame. The 25-year-old had been better in his last two outings, but the two homers he yielded Wednesday, the first he'd allowed since May 24, fueled the Yankees' comeback. Thornton is 2-5 with a 4.60 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 91 strikeouts in 86 innings heading into a home date against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
