It was the same old story for the Yankees. They struggled offensively and had to rely heavily on their bullpen, and it proved costly as they lost to the Blue Jays, 5-4, at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Fla., on Wednesday afternoon. Toronto took two out of three games in the series.
Aaron Judge hit two runs in his first two at-bats, but the offense sputtered. The Yankees didn’t have many scoring opportunities, going 1-for-3 with runners in scoring position. New York got on the board in the first inning when Judge took right-hander T.J. Zeuch deep over the left-field wall to give the club a 1-0 lead.
Judge connected for another solo shot three innings later, then the Yankees scored two more runs in the frame on a single by Gio Urshela that tied the game at 4-4.
