Yankees fall to Blue Jays, 6-4

The New York Yankees fell to the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-4, on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

It was the Vladimir Guerrero Jr. show as he homered three times to lead Toronto to a victory.

Guerrero Jr. belted a solo home run to center off Gerrit Cole in the first to open the scoring.

In the third, Guerrero blasted his second homer of the game into the bullpen in left-center to extend the Blue Jays lead to 3-0.

The Yankees scored three runs in the fifth to tie the game. Anthony Rizzo and Aaron Judge hit back-to-back home runs and DJ LeMahieu tied the game with a two-out RBI double to right.

George Springer put Toronto back on top in the seventh with a two-out RBI single to center.

Guerrero Jr. crushed his third home run of the game into the seats in left in the eighth to make it 5-3. Later in the inning, Matt Chapman grounded one through the right side for a two-out RBI single to put the Blue Jays back up by three.

Gleyber Torres launched a solo home run just over the right-field wall in the eighth to cut the lead to two.

The Yankees had a chance to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. Aaron Judge and Josh Donaldson each came to the plate as the tying run, but Judge struck out and Donaldson lined out to first.

Cole allowed three runs on four hits over 5.2 innings while striking out six and walking one in his second start of the season. Chad Green was the first one out of the bullpen and he allowed an unearned run. Jonathan Loaisiga and Wandy Peralta each allowed an earned run. JP Sears made his Major League debut and tossed a scoreless inning.

The Yankees will try to split this four-game series on Thursday night. Luis Severino will make his second start of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
