Yankees push win streak to 11 with win over Blue Jays

The New York Yankees won their 11th consecutive game on Tuesday night with a 9-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre.

Toronto scored the first run of the game, but after that it was all New York.

The Blue Jays opened the scoring in the first after Bo Bichette grounded a two-out RBI single through the left side.

Aaron Judge crushed his ninth home run of the season over the left-field wall in the sixth to tie the game.

In the seventh, the Yankees scored six runs to break the game open. Josh Donaldson started the inning by smoking a RBI double to left-center to put New York on top, 2-1. One batter later, Marwin Gonzalez lined a RBI double to left-center to make it 3-1. Following that, Jose Trevino grounded one to first and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. decided to throw home to try to get Gonzalez, but Gonzalez was able to score after avoiding the tag in a rundown. Later, Aaron Hicks ripped a RBI single to left to increase the lead to 5-1. Judge capped off the big inning by hammering a two-run double to left-center.


Giancarlo Stanton crushed a two-run home run to left in the ninth, his fifth of the season, to make it 9-1.

Hicks, Judge and Gonzalez each had multi-hit games. Hicks was on base four times.

Jameson Taillon got the start for New York and tossed six really strong innings of one-run ball and struck out four.

Wandy Peralta, Miguel Castro and Lucas Luetge each fired a scoreless inning in relief.

The Yankees go for the three-game sweep and their 12th straight win on Wednesday night. Nestor Cortes will get the ball. First pitch is scheduled for 7:07 p.m.
