Yankees end up on opposite end of walk-off as they fall 7-6 to Blue Jays


When the Yankees were able to tie the game at six by the seventh inning, it seemed there was hope that the Yankees could actually come away with a victory. Unfortunately, the Yankees (literally) threw the game away in the bottom of the ninth, sending them to a heartbreaking walk-off loss by a score of 7-6 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

David Phelps probably deserved a better fate, going five innings while giving up six runs on eight hits and striking out seven. Matt Thornton came on and pitched a scoreless inning, Dellin Betances pitched two scoreless innings while working out of a bases loaded jam but Adam Warren (with assistance from Yangervis Solarte) had a miscommunication problem, allowing Jose Reyes to score from second base on a throwing error towards the stands.

The Yankees scored one run in the sixth on a Derek Jeter solo home-run and five runs in the seventh on a Brian Roberts two-run home run, a single by Jacoby Ellsbury and two runs scored on a throwing error by Jose Reyes.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees attempt to salvage the final game of a three game set by sending Hiroki Kuroda in the mound. Drew Hutchison will take the mound for the Blue Jays. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
