The Yankees and Blue Jays started both Nathan Eovaldi and R.A. Dickey, knowing it would be a battle of the starting pitchers. Soon, the Yankees and Blue Jays ended up having a battle of the bullpens. But in the end, the Yankees bullpen suffered a huge blip, which resulted in a 2-1 loss at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The lone run for the Yankees came in the second inning on Mark Teixeira‘s 30th home run of the season.
Nathan Eovaldi started for the Yankees, giving up one run on five hits in 6.1 innings of work. Justin Wilson retired a batter, Dellin Betances pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless inning and Branden Pinder gave up a run on a hit in his inning of work.
— The Yankees return tomorrow afternoon with hopes of taking the second game of this three game series and they’ll do that by sending Ivan Nova to the mound. The Blue Jays will counter with David Price. First pitch will be at 1:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
