Yankees find ways to win

The Yankees and Blue Jays looked like big favorites to battle for the AHL East lead heading into the season. However, it goes without saying that the New York formation seems to be taking off.

"It's fantastic. We talked about the importance of winning in different ways and finding ways to win,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said earlier this week, as quoted on the Major League Baseball website.

The Yankees had just won by the score of 15 to 7, Thursday night, against the Chicago White Sox. Giancarlo Stanton completed the game with two home runs and six RBIs. With the win, the Yankees improved to 23-8.

"It's very 'cool', especially helping the team win," Stanton said. It's always better to experience such an evening in a winning cause."

Important series against the Rays

The staying power of Stanton, who hit seven homers in 13 games between April 27 and May 12, clashes with the Blue Jays' recent big-gun performances.

It was also possible to see Vladimir Guerrero Jr. smash a stick on his knee a few days ago after being struck out.

If his club is struggling, Guerrero Jr. was nevertheless on a nine-game streak with at least one hit before starting an important series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.

These same Rays also occupy second place in the section, ahead of the Blue Jays, while the Baltimore Orioles and the poor Boston Red Sox bring up the rear.

Ryu's Return

In Game 2 of this series between the Blue Jays and Rays in St. Petersburg, South Korean pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu is expected to return to the mound for the Toronto squad.

Recovered from a forearm injury, Ryu had only made two starts with the Jays this season, on April 10 and 16, before being among the injured. In just seven and a third innings of work, he had allowed 11 earned runs.
