The New York Yankees (54-32) earned a four-game series split on Sunday afternoon with an 8-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays (38-45) at the Rogers Centre.

Aaron Judge opened the game with his Major League-leading 31st home run of the season, a two-run shot to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead and they rolled from there. Judge later added another hit and was on base three times.

DJ LeMahieu had a nice day at the plate, going 2-for-4 with an RBI single and an RBI double. Trent Grisham had a two-run double, Ben Rice added a run-scoring double, and Juan Soto chipped in a bases-loaded walk.

Gerrit Cole tossed five innings of one-run ball while scattering three hits and striking out six. Michael Tonkin, Tim Hill, and Josh Maciejewski combined for four scoreless.

Box Score

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they begin a six-game homestand, starting Tuesday with three against the Cincinnati Reds.
