A recap of yesterday's Toronto/New York Yankees Game Three.
|Before I get into yesterday's game, I want to talk about the weekend series.
Yes, the Toronto Blue Jays lost two out of three against the New York Yankees, however, it is not as if the Yanks. outplayed the Blue Birds.
No. The Yankees just outscored the Jays 9-3.
The Yankees also committed three errors in yesterday's game.
I mean, we're talking about the Mighty Yankees here.
The Yankees did not play as if the team was first in the American League East Division.
Not by a long shot.
New York ought of hammered Toronto, but didn't.
It is obvious to me that New York is probably going to have problems going down the stretch if the Yankees don't play better.
Anyway, back to yesterday's game.
New York went up 2-0 in the bottom of the second inning when Gio Urshela hit a two run single.
The Jays tied the game 2-2 at the top of the fifth inning with solo home runs by Randal Grichuk and Eric Sogard.
In the bottom of the fifth, the Yankees went ahead 3-2 when Urshela scored on a wild pitch.
Urshela went two for four at the plate and had two RBIs.
Mike Touchman hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning as New York went on to win the rubber match 4-2.
Toronto's Danny Jansen, went two for four at the plate.
Despite the loss, Toronto's starting pitcher, Marcus Stroman, had a really good day at the mound.
Stroman went six innings, giving up seven hits, three earned runs, two walks, and struck out seven batters.
Yankee's starter, Masashiro Tanaka, also went six innings, giving up just four hits, two earned runs, no walks, and struck out five batters.
Yankee's closer, Ariodis Chapman picked up his 25th save yesterday.
