This time, the troop of manager Charlie Montoyo lowered the flag at the count of 5 to 3. It was thus swept in this short series of two confrontations. Since the start of the 2022 season, the Jays have only won three in nine games against the Bronx Bombers.
In Game of the Day, the Yankees took off in the fourth inning. Gleyber Torres kicked the ball out of bounds as teammates Anthony Rizzo and DJ LeMahieu were on the trails.
Two turns at bat later, after the Blue Jays had come within a single run, Torres again hurt Major League Baseball's only Canadian squad. The 25-year-old shortstop hit a single and drove in two more runs.
The Queen City club scored an extra run in the ninth inning, courtesy of a George Springer sacrifice fly. Endgame specialist Aroldis Chapman, however, gave nothing else and took the opportunity to sign his eighth save of the current campaign.
The victory went to Jameson Taillon's record (3-1), while the loss was conceded by Jose Berrios (2-2).
The Blue Jays will now travel to Florida for a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. This will begin on Friday evening at Tropicana Field.
