  • Blue Jays set sights for playoffs

"It was similar to my first one ever".

Making his first start since last July 19, Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings. Stanton became the first player to homer in his first Yankees plate appearance since Judge two years ago.

"We've got to find different ways to manufacture runs", Pillar said. Happ will go five innings and allow three runs, but the bullpen will keep the Yankees in check for the rest of the game. Failing to reach base for what seemed like an eternity, newcomer Curtis Granderson recorded Toronto's first hit with a single in the bottom of the fourth inning.

"I talk about [Vladimir Guerrero Jr] and Bo Bichette nearly in the same breath - these kids could be the 'generational type talent, '. the future of the Toronto Blue Jays", he said. "He shut us down pretty good". The next inning, Austin hit his second homer.

Hicks went 2-for-4 in yesterday's opener in Toronto.

"It's been good, being able to talk to him and bounce things off of him", Grichuk said.

Boone had been a television analyst since retiring as a player after the 2009 season.

It was New York's first win on the first day of the season since 2011.

Severino got a visit from pitching coach Larry Rothschild after issuing consecutive walks in the first, but escaped the jam by striking out Kendrys Morales. Betances and Aroldis Chapman retired the final six batters in order.

They were inspired by the people they met who shared their faith with them. "It seems like they get a little better every year", he said .

With the Toronto Blue Jays struggling to score runs, Kevin Pillar found another way to create some offense.

"I've been feeling it all spring", Donaldson said. He didn't say a whole lot.

General manager Ross Atkins said before the game that Donaldson would DH until his "dead arm phase" subsides. "I just have to be a little more sharp and get ahead a little bit more".

"I think there's going to be some lean years in Detroit but that's what rebuildings are made of, we're seeing a lot of teams do it in major league baseball and I don't disagree with it", said Siddall, who has previously played for the Tigers.

Yankees: RHP Sonny Gray is 4-3 with a 2.47 ERA in eight career starts against the Blue Jays. He doesn't strike out a ton of batters, with his 19.7% strikeout rate checking in at almost two percentage points below league-average, but he limits walks and keeps the ball on the ground, so he can thrive with even a modest of whiffs. Halladay passed away in a plane crash on November 7th, 2017. Gregorius credited him with only three RBIs.

On Friday, Tanaka did it without the help of the big boppers that carried the Yankees in their season-opening win Thursday. That translates to "Giancarlo, you can not stop it!" Justin Smoak, on his Bobblehead Day, then punched a single to left, scoring Donaldson, from second and giving Toronto their first lead in the series.

Hicks joins outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury, who has a right oblique strain, and Clint Frazier, who has a concussion on the Yankees' DL.

The former big league catcher spent four seasons as the colour-commentator on Toronto Blue Jays radio broadcasts, but this year he's headed for the screen - joining Jamie Campbell on Sportsnet's Blue Jays Central TV show. The move is retroactive to March 28.

In Grichuk and Diaz, they made a pair of upside plays on talented players coming off hard seasons, Solarte is a useful Swiss-Army-knife player while Garcia and Granderson are dependable stopgaps.
