Gerrit Cole tossed a complete-game shutout, and Aaron Judge recorded his seventh multi-homer game of the season as the New York Yankees (81-77) picked up a 6-0 victory over the Blue Jays (87-71) on Wednesday night at the Rogers Centre.
Cole, who has seemingly locked up the American League Cy Young Award, allowed just two baserunners over his nine innings of work, both of which were singles from Brandon Belt. The right-hander lowered his ERA to an AL-best 2.63.
Judge blasted a pair of two-run home runs, raising his season total to 37 in 103 games. His seven multi-homer games are the seventh-most in Major League Baseball, trailing Atlanta’s Matt Olson, who has eight.
Giancarlo Stanton added a two-run single, extending his hitting streak to three games. Estevan Florial collected two hits.
The Yankees will try to complete the three-game sweep on Thursday with Luke Weaver on the hill. The first pitch is slated for 7:07 p.m.
