Shawn Hill, who was with York, PA in the Atlantic League until June 18, made his first major league appearance since 2010 Saturday, and it was a dandy. The right-hander hurled three hitless innings (two walks) while Toronto was coming back to hand the New York Yankees a major loss, 3-2. Eight of his nine outs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings were on ground balls. The loss cut the Yankees' American League East lead to one-half game pending Baltimore's game against Boston Saturday night.
Steve Delabar, a veteran of two Independent leagues, worked a scoreless eighth inning for the Blue Jays although he also walked a pair. Delabar pitched for Brockton, MA of the Can-Am League and Florence, KY of the Frontier League.
