The New York Yankees (6-2) were shut out by the Toronto Blue Jays (4-4), 3-0, in their home opener on Friday afternoon.

It was a scoreless game through six innings until Rochester native Ernie Clement led off the seventh with a long solo home run off Caleb Ferguson. Toronto added two more in the ninth on a pair of wild pitches, and former Yankee Chad Green closed it out.

New York had six hits, all of which were singles. They went 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position and left seven on base. Juan Soto, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton combined to go 0-for-10 with five strikeouts.

Marcus Stroman tossed six scoreless frames while striking out six. The right-hander has not allowed an earned run over his first two outings as a Yankee.

Box Score

The Yankees will try to bounce back on Saturday with Clarke Schmidt on the mound. The first pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
