Blue Jays rout Yankees behind four homers

Blue Jays rout Yankees behind four homers

Chad Green opened on the mound for the Yankees, but after facing four batters in an inning of work, he was replaced by lefty Stephen Tarpley. He has allowed one or no runs in nine of his 19 starts against Toronto and has at least six strikeouts in 11 of the starts.

That set the stage for Law.

"Any kind of game rep these kids can get right now is huge for them and then you put into the equation great competition, great pitching, great hitting on the other side, I think it's an awesome experience and great exposure", Jays major league coach John Schneider said. "It was special to get it against the Yankees and here in Toronto". "I was able to put a good swing on the ball". He stated that he found his groove after the all-star break last month.

Sanchez is in the midst of another strong season when healthy behind the plate. "Now I'm going out there free and easy, that's the best way to explain it".

They have a chance Sunday afternoon to win a second home series from the Yankees after a 5-4 victory Saturday afternoon. All sons of former major leaguers, the three rookies delivered. Cavan Biggio and Derek Fisher each added a base hit as well as Toronto also had just five hits as a team in the winning effort. "I know that may sound a little weird, but the opportunities are here". "I thought once these guys are (in Toronto), it's going to be fun to watch". "They played together for a few years in the minors and now they're doing it here".

"You see bits and pieces of it, but you also see the whole lineup clicking and there's so much talent in this locker room", McGuire said.


Despite Bichette's evening to remember, the Blue Jays fell 12-6 after starter Thomas Pannone lasted just 2.1 innings, allowing seven earned runs. The 26-year-old has been a steady contributor the last two season for the Yankees - 3.42 ERA over 97 games in 2017 and 2018 - so there's a fair amount of flukiness in the unusually high number of runs allowed. Of the Jays 43 remaining games, 18 are against division leaders (including eight against the Yanks) and 25 against teams now holding down a playoff spot.

"His arm is not bouncing back", Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said after the game Saturday. The left-hander, who went 10-20 with Baltimore in 2016-17, is 5-0 in nine starts since June 17. "The more experience we get, the better we're going to be".

TIGERS 5, ROYALS 2: Edwin Jackson pitched neatly into the seventh inning in his return to the Tigers, overcoming an inside-the-park home run to lead off the game in beating visiting Kansas City.

The Yankees have won five of their last six road games and 42 of their last 55 division games.

Whether it's comfort or the fact he's riding one of those hot streaks that all elite athletes seem to hit from time to time, Guerrero is producing.
