Yankees roll past Blue Jays for eighth straight win

The New York Yankees rolled past the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-3, in the series opener on Friday night at the Rodgers Centre in Toronto. With the victory, the Yankees have won eight consecutive games.

New York smacked four home runs, including back-to-back homers from Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu, a grand slam from Anthony Rizzo, and a two-run shot from Joey Gallo. Torres and Gallo had run-scoring doubles, and Kyle Higashioka drove in a run with a groundout.

LeMahieu collected three hits, and everyone in the starting lineup had at least a hit except for Higashioka.


Jordan Montgomery started on the bump for New York, and he tossed six innings of two-run ball while walking one and striking out five. Manny Bañuelos was the first one out of the bullpen, and he surrendered a run over 1 1/3 innings. Miguel Castro recorded two outs, and Lucas Luetge fired a scoreless inning.

Jameson Taillon gets the start on Saturday afternoon as the Yankees look to secure another series win. The first pitch is slated for 3:07 p.m.
