The New York Yankees just couldn’t generate any offense as they fell to the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-0, in the series opener on Monday night at Yankee Stadium.
Jameson Taillon made his first start of the season and allowed two runs on five hits over five really strong innings while striking out six. He made just one mistake that resulted in a home run. Michael King followed Taillon and surrendered one run over 2.2 innings. Ron Marinaccio made his second MLB appearance and recorded four outs.
George Springer provided all of Toronto’s offense. He hammered a two-run home run over the left-field wall in the third and ripped a two-out, two-run double to right-center in the seventh.
The Yankees had just four hits. Joey Gallo had two of them while Gleyber Torres and Aaron Hicks each had one.
Nestor Cortes will make his first start of the season on Tuesday night as the Yankees will try to bounce back in the second game of this four-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
