All 4 Yankees home runs in 8th inning vs. Blue Jays

How did the Blue Jays turn it around in May? Bats, bullpen and Biagini

Josh Donaldson hit two solo home runs, Justin Smoak added a two-run blast and a sacrifice fly and the Toronto Blue Jays held on to beat the New York Yankees 7-5 on Friday night.

New York Yankees' Brett Gardner, right, celebrates with teammate Aaron Judge after hitting a solo home run off Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Jason Grilli during the eighth inning of a baseball game in Toronto, Saturday, June 3, 2017.

"It's pretty impressive, a lot of fun to be a part of", Gardner said.

"Seeing Smoak and how he's progressed this season from the first season we got him, to previous year to now, it's very satisfying to see". "You're probably not going to see that very often". The right-hander, in his sixth start in place of injured pitchers in Toronto's rotation, allowed four hits and three runs - only one of them earned - over a career-high seven innings.

Estrada's occasional wobble in the first inning this season was more of a stumble in this one as he never found his rhythm and command was also an issue. Kendrys Morales strikes out swinging.

Justin Smoak, one of the Blue Jays top offensive producers this season, drove in three runs and Francisco Liriano pitched into the sixth in his return from the DL as Toronto held off a tough NY lineup.

Montgomery gave up three singles in six innings, striking out five and walking three for his first win since May 6 against the Chicago Cubs as the Yankees hit four homers en route to a 7-0 victory over the Blue Jays. "The error early in the game might have cost him another 10 or 15 pitches, otherwise there's no telling how far he goes".

Severino was just a tad better than Stroman through five innings, when the Yankees led 1-0. Kevin Pillar went back into the shadows and leaped but had the ball go off his glove for an RBI double that made it 2-0.

"I'm not ready to play the victim card just yet", Biagini said of the circumstances surrounding the unearned runs.

Trump hits out at 'fake news' following Kushner reports
The newspaper cited anonymous USA officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications. Adam Schiff, Calif., suggested that Kushner's security clearance should be reviewed.

Leury Garcia touched Fulmer for an RBI single in the third inning, by which time Detroit had scored five times, and another while Chicago was getting three runs and three hits in the fifth.

Biagini retired 10 batters in a row until Castro led off the seventh with a bloop double to left. Pineda gave up a hit to Luke Maile, a career.178/.208/.297 big league hitter, in an 0-2 count with a pitch up at shoulder level.

Smoak matched his home run total of last season with his 14th of the year.

"I thought Monty threw the ball really, really well", Gardner said. "It's everyday. And that's what we need".

"[He's not feeling] good enough".

The Yankees added a run in the seventh after Castro hit a duck snort to left that left-fielder Darwin Barney broke poorly on, for two bases, and then the next hitter, Gregorius placed the ball nearly to the same spot, scoring Castro.

That was the merciful end, as J.P. Howell got the last out. "I think that was a huge huge win for us for the guys". "It's one of those things if you keep aggravating it things get worse", he said. It was just one of those days. Going into the game there were guys we had to stay away from, unless we had the lead or were tied. "So I was looking for something hard and he kind of hung the slider".

For Sunday's game, the Yankees will be rolling out RHP Luis Severino for the start. Coming into the night Liriano had thrown all of two curveballs in the last decade (since the PITCHF/x era started in 2007) - one of them to Chris Davis last season - and the backstop called for two in the same game.
