New York — Derek Jeter watched the last four outs of his final regular-season Subway Series game from the bench, pulled off the field during a double switch in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night as the New York Yankees held off the Mets 1-0.

Alfonso Soriano’s RBI double in the seventh broke up a scoreless duel at Citi Field between pitchers making their major league debuts. Rookie reliever Dellin Betances struck out six in a row as the Yankees earned a split of this year’s series between crosstown rivals with their second straight shutout.

David Robertson got David Wright to ground out to Jeter’s replacement at shortstop, Brendan Ryan, with runners at the corners to end the eighth.

Jeter left after an 0-for-4 night. The Yankees captain came out when Robertson entered to face Wright. Robertson pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

American League

Blue Jays 4, Indians 2

Toronto — Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs, Juan Francisco also connected and Toronto beat Cleveland to give manager John Gibbons his 400th career win.

Encarnacion hit a solo homer in the second off Danny Salazar and added a two-run blast in the fifth off C.C. Lee. It was his second multihomer game of the season and the 13th of his career.

Orioles 2, Royals 1

Kansas City, Mo. — Nelson Cruz homered and first-place Baltimore beat Kansas City to snap a four-game losing streak.

Cruz homered in the fourth after Chris Davis drew a walk to lead off the inning. It was Cruz’s 12th home run, which is second in the American League to the 15 of Chicago White Sox rookie Jose Abreu. Cruz’s 35 RBIs are tied for second in the AL.

National League

Reds 5, Padres 0 Padres 6, Reds 1

Cincinnati — Rene Rivera hit the first of San Diego’s three homers, and Tyson Ross allowed three hits in seven innings, leading the Padres to a victory and a split of their doubleheader with Cincinnati.

The Reds’ Johnny Cueto pitched a three-hitter for his second shutout in the opener of the day-night doubleheader.

The Padres won their first series on the road this season, taking two of three. They have won five of their last six games, their best stretch of the season.

Brewers 4, Pirates 3

Milwaukee — Khris Davis hit a game-ending two-run single and Milwaukee rallied in the ninth off closer Mark Melancon.

Notes

Marlins Ace to Have Tommy John Surgery

San Francisco — The Miami Marlins said ace Jose Fernandez will have Tommy John surgery today on his right elbow.

The move was expected after Fernandez was put on the disabled list this week. Manager Mike Redmond announced Thursday that Fernandez would have the elbow ligament transplant procedure.

The season-ending operation will be done in Los Angeles. Fernandez is the latest in a string of major league pitchers this year who have needed Tommy John surgery this year.

The 21-year-old Fernandez was last season’s NL Rookie of the Year. He was 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in eight starts this season.

Rays Put Infielder on DL

Anaheim, Calif. — The Tampa Bay Rays put switch-hitting second baseman Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a dislocated left thumb.

Zobrist was injured on a headfirst slide while trying to steal second base in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory at Seattle.

The headfirst slide is a part of Zobrist’s game, and something he plans to continue when he returns to the lineup.

Zobrist played in a career-high 157 games last season, becoming the first player in franchise history to appear in 150 or more games in five consecutive years. The nine-year veteran and two-time All-Star is batting .260 with three homers and nine RBIs for the Rays, who came to Anaheim last in the AL East — but just 3½ games out of first.
