Yankees defeat Blue Jays 8-6 4


Blue Jays vs. Yankees
FINAL: Yankees 8, Blue Jays 6
WIN: Dellin Betances (1-1, 0.93 ERA)
LOSS: Joe Biagini (0-1, 3.38 ERA)

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.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees are off on Thursday, but they return Friday afternoon as they play the World Series Champions the Chicago Cubs in a three-game set. Michael Pineda is slated to start for the Yankees and Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs. First pitch is at 2:20 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    All Yankees fans are bummed out that there is no game Thursday, including me. We have to wait until Friday to see Judge play again. Judge has infused such life and enthusiasm in the game for all of us, not just Yankee fans. An unstoppable force that cannot be denied. How much damage can he inflict. It's true this is must see baseball . What kind of numbers can he attain? A trip you don't want to end.

    On the bright side, we get to see Sanchez return and in historic and tiny Wrigley come Friday at 2:20. The pair of them should have fun for the weekend series.

    Weird note/question for last night’s game:

    They changed pitchers twice last night before facing "0 for life" Kyle Higashioka. Not only that, there was no chance of the Yanks pinch hitting for him as Romine was only available in an emergency. Anyone ever seen that before?

      I was wondering the same thing, someone mentioned Torreyes and I thought maybe Refsynder in an emergency. And yes excited to see Sanchez back.
