The New York Yankees (53-31) got back in the win column on Friday night at the Rogers Centre with a 16-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays (37-44), snapping a four-game skid. 

New York trailed 3-1 after five innings but things suddenly changed. Juan Soto ignited the offense in the sixth, blasting a go-ahead three-run home run, and the Yankees never looked back as they scored a season-high 16 runs on 18 hits. 

Everyone in the starting lineup had at least a hit and six players had multi-hit games. 

Gleyber Torres, who was recently benched, went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly. Aaron Judge collected three hits in five at-bats and drove in two runs. Alex Verdugo picked up an RBI single and a sacrifice fly, while J.D. Davis, DJ LeMahieu, and Oswaldo Cabrera had RBI doubles. Jahmai Jones added three hits, including a run-scoring single. 

Marcus Stroman allowed three runs on five hits in 4.1 innings while walking three and striking out three. 

Box Score

The Yankees will try to make it two straight in game three of this four-game series on Saturday at 3:07 p.m. Nestor Cortes will take the ball.
