The New York Yankees are swept at home by the Toronto Blue Jays

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 2-0 Jays.  Masahiro Tanaka started for the Yankees and pitched well and the bullpen did their job.  The Yankees offense didn't do much of anything once again. 

Tanaka pitched six innings giving up two runs on three hits.  He walked none and struck out five and took his fifth loss of the season.  Adam Warren gave up a hit and a walk without recording an out, Justin Wiilson pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings with two strikeouts and Branden Pinder pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a walk with a strikeout.  Chasen Shreve pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a walk and he struck out two. 

Marco Estrada won his tenth game of the season pitching 6 1/3 innings giving up three hits and no runs.  He walked three and struck out six.  LaTroy Hawkins pitched 2/3 of an inning striking out one, Aaron Sanchez pitched an inning with a walk and a strikeout and Roberto Osuna pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and he saved his tenth game of the season. 

Brett Gardner drew a walk, Mark Teixeira drew a walk and Brian McCann drew a walk.  Carlos Beltran had a hit and drew a walk, Chase Headley had a hit and Didi Gregorius had a hit.  The Yankees were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. 

Troy Tulowitzki drew a walk, Josh Donaldson had two hits and an RBI and Jose Bautista had two hits and an RBI.  Dioner Navarro drew a walk, Chris Colabello had a hit and Cliff Pennington drew a walk.  Donaldson and Bautista hit a homerun and the Blue Jays were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. 

In the first Donaldson hit a solo homerun to give the Jays a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Bautista hit a solo homerun to give them a 2-0 lead and that was the final score.  The Yankees were swept in the three game series and will have the day off on Monday.  They will begin a three game series in Cleveland on Tuesday night and then they will play three in Toronto over the weekend.
