Can Blue Jays Slug Their Way Past Tanaka, Yankees?

Can Blue Jays Slug Their Way Past Tanaka, Yankees?

Yankees: New York optioned INF Breyvic Valera to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and selected selected right-hander Brady Lail and left-hander Joe Mantiply from Triple-A.

With two on in the seventh inning, and with the Toronto Blue Jays trailing the New York Yankees by one, the powerhouse third basemen slashed a base hit the other way for another first-ever moment. "Hopefully it's something that's a little shorter term but he's definitely got some impingement in there", Boone said.

Reid-Foley (2-2) walked two batters 64 of his 95 pitches were strikes, a ratio that impressed his manager.

"Before Bo showed up, Vlad was very hot", Montoyo said. "The problem is sometimes he gets wild and walks people, but today he threw strikes". Axford did not pitch for Toronto this season. They traded their ace, Marcus Stroman, to the New York Mets two weeks ago. SS Didi Gregorius got the day off. Gary Sanchez was the DH in his second game after returning from injury. "He's a fierce competitor, but he's staying really composed and worrying about the next pitch".

The blast was Hernandez's 18th of the season and 14th in 40 games since June 16.

Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio scored on the play, putting the Blue Jays ahead of NY 5-4 - a lead they maintained for the victory.

Jason Adam (1-0) worked 1 1/3 innings for his first major league win and Derek Law got four outs for his third save in three opportunities.

Teheran (7-7) pitched seven innings and departed with a 6-1 lead.

She added that the children had been staying at the day care because their parents were working overnight. It is understood the fire started in the living room on the ground floor before it quickly spread.


According to MLB.com, Guerrero's single on Saturday was the fourth-hardest hit ball this season.

Boone said Sabathia will throw another bullpen Tuesday and could rejoin the Yankees during next week's home series against Cleveland.

"I didn't even open my mouth, which is unusual for me", Gardner said.

"He just wanted to assume or wanted to take a guess and he was wrong", Gardner added. Toronto centre fielder Teoscar Hernandez misread a fly ball from Gio Urshela that dropped in front of Hernandez for a double.

ASTROS 3, ORIOLES 2: Wade Miley pitched impressively against his former team, Jose Altuve hit a pivotal RBI triple in the seventh inning and visiting Houston won its seventh straight. The call was overturned and the inning continued. NY third baseman Gio Urshela, however, belted a homer to the second deck in centre field to tie the game. Gaviglio gave up two hits in his three innings. NY has scored at least a run in 200 consecutive games, the fourth longest streak in major league history. He had played in a grand total of 158 big league games, and last year's batting average was a career high, albeit in just 43 at-bats.

The two clubs may have split the four games series, but it was encouraging to see the young Blue Jays lineup hold their own against one of the most unsafe teams in baseball.

Notes: Bichette went 0-for-4 and had his franchise-record 11-game hitting streak to start a big-league career come to an end. Starter Ryan Borucki was also officially shifted to the 60-day disabled list. He underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow.
