The New York Yankees picked up a third straight series win on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, taking down the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3.

New York trailed 1-0 entering the bottom of the third inning until Anthony Rizzo worked a two-out bases-loaded walk to tie the game, and Giancarlo Stanton followed that with his 11th carer grand slam to give the Yankees a 5-1 lead. Toronto cut the deficit to two in the sixth before the Yankees pulled away in the late innings to improve to 8-2 on the season.

Juan Soto and Oswaldo Cabrera chipped in RBI, while Gleyber Torres recorded two hits to extend his longest season-opening on-base streak to 10 games.

Luis Gil surrendered two runs on four hits over 4.1 innings while walking four and striking out eight. Jake Cousins allowed a run, while Nick Burdi, Caleb Ferguson, and Dennis Santana posted scoreless outings.

Box Score

The Yankees will continue their homestand on Monday when they welcome the Miami Marlins for a three-game series. Nestor Cortes will make his third start, looking to get on track. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
