Gleyber Torres leads Yankees to two-game sweep of Blue Jays

The New York Yankees completed the two-game sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays with a 5-3 victory on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

Jameson Taillon got the start for New York and struggled in the first inning but was able to settle in and pitch into the sixth. He surrendered a pair of runs on six hits over 5.1 innings while walking one and striking out four.

Michael King and Clay Holmes each had scoreless outings in relief. Aroldis Chapman allowed his first run of the season but was able to pick up his eighth save of the season.

Gleyber Torres provided all of the offense as he homered and collected five RBI.

Torres gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead with a three-run shot to right-center in the fourth, which was his fifth home run of the season. In the sixth, Torres lined a two-run single to center to extend the lead to 5-2.

Toronto scored their first run of the game on a groundout. Their other two runs came on sacrifice flies.

DJ LeMahieu had a multi-hit game.

The Yankees will head to Chicago to begin a four-game series with the White Sox on Thursday night. Luis Gil will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton and will get the start. The first pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. ET.
