Jays steal one from banged-up Yanks

Monday, 02 Apr, 2018

That gave the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead in the first inning.

Donahue and Boone once again made their way from the Yankees' dugout, conferring with Warren, who then exited the field with Donahue. Donaldson was walked before Smoak hit his second career grand slam.

Donaldson walked in the seventh inning before Smoak hit his first homer of the season on a 1-0 pitch from Tommy Kahnle.

Tyler Wade who has a lot of speed can play the outfield, but probably won't because as Aaron Boone put it, it wouldn't be fair to him.

Per the Yankees' public relations department, Hicks has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, and outfielder Billy McKinney was called up from Triple-A to take his spot on the 25-man roster. Tanaka went six innings while giving up just one run on three hits. Left-hander Jaime Garcia (0-0) is slated to make his Blue Jays debut. However, Stroman is a big game pitcher who likes the spotlight and usaully shows up when he faces the Yankees. He got out of that frame unscathed but in the eighth inning, Yangervis Solarte crushed a solo shot off him and Kevin Pillar stole home on him.

New York's Sonny Gray allowed one run on seven hits in four-plus innings but needed 89 pitches.

The Blue Jays' bullpen recorded an ERA of 4.36 against the Yankees previous year.

Brandon Drury has been playing well at third base and at the plate and, at age 24, likely doesn't need rest, especially considering the Yankees won't play Tuesday due to a scheduled off day.

1 run, 1 hit, 0 errors, 1 left on.

Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Xander Bogaerts homered and Rick Porcello took a shutout into the sixth for visiting Boston. He initially remained in the game, but after showing clear discomfort while attempting a throw he was replaced by Brett Gardner.

Righty reliever Ryan Tepera very clearly pitched around Stanton with two outs and the bases empty in the seventh inning of a tie game, and Gregorius popped up on the first pitch to end the inning.

Four runs would be all, continuing their streak to begin the season of not being able to score runs if it is not reliant on the long ball. Yankees 3, Blue Jays 3.

He hit.266 with 15 home runs and 52 RBIs while primarily playing center field.

Pillar hit a one-out single and swiped his way to third. Aledmys Diaz strikes out swinging. Yikes. Four stolen bases in the inning, and even though one was not really a steal because the Blue Jays were hoping Maile would get caught in a rundown when Sanchez threw to second, that's still awful. Gift Ngoepe singled to right but Judge fired a one-hopper to the plate to get Martin for the second out. Pillar got third base when catcher Luke Maile jogged to second base, hoping to draw Sanchez to throw so Pillar could go home.
