Yankees blank Blue Jays, 4-0

The New York Yankees snapped their two-game skid with a 4-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Nestor Cortes made his first start of the season and looked just like the same pitcher from last season as he tossed 4.1 shutout innings and allowed just three hits while striking out five.

The bullpen continued to dominate as Clay Holmes (1.2 IP), Miguel Castro (1.0 IP), Jonathan Loaisiga (1.0 IP) and Aroldis Chapman (1.0 IP) each recorded scoreless appearances.

Aaron Hicks opened the scoring in the second inning with a two-run home run to right, which snapped a 15-inning scoreless streak for the Yankees.


DJ LeMahieu scored from second on a throwing error by Blue Jays catcher Tyler Heineman to extend the Yankees lead in the fourth.

Giancarlo Stanton drove in a run in the eighth with a sacrifice fly to left.

LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres each had two-hit games.

Gerrit Cole will make his second start of the season on Wednesday night in game three of this four-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
