When the Yankees were immediately down 4-0 in the first inning, it appeared they were heading on their way to their second loss in the last three games. However, the offense rallied back, and ended up defeating the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 8-6 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees got on the board in the bottom of the first on a three-run home run by Matt Holliday. In the third, Aaron Judge hit a two-run home run. The Yankees added three more runs in the eighth inning on RBI singles by Chris Carter and Didi Gregorius, and a bases loaded walk by Aaron Hicks.
CC Sabathia went four innings, giving up six runs on seven hits while striking out five. Adam Warren pitched a scoreless inning, Tyler Clippard pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, Betances pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth.
