Yankees blown out again, fall to 4-11 in last 15 games

The losses keep piling up for the New York Yankees (53-32) as they were blown out, 9-3, by the Toronto Blue Jays (38-44) on Saturday afternoon at the Rogers Centre, falling to 4-11 over their last 15 games. 

It was a game for the first five innings as New York trailed by just two runs, but the bullpen unraveled in the sixth, and the Blue Jays scored five runs to pull away. 

Phil Bickford was charged with all five runs in that disastrous sixth after Nestor Cortes failed to complete five innings. The left-hander surrendered three runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings. Clay Holmes also gave up a run.

Aaron Judge drove in the first run with a two-out RBI single, his Major League-leading 80th RBI of the season. Austin Wells added a two-run homer, his third of the season.

Box Score

Gerrit Cole will take the ball on Sunday as the Yankees will try to split this four-game series against the Blue Jays. The first pitch is slated for 1:37 p.m.
