New York Yankees lose second straight game in Toronto

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.  The game took place at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada and the final score was 4-1 Toronto.  CC Sabathia started for the Yankees and pitched well, Dellin Betances didn't pitch well in relief.  The Yankees offense once again was stagnant. 

Sabathia pitched 6+ innings giving up five hits and two runs with a walk and four strikeouts.  He took his fourth loss of the season.  Betances pitched an inning giving up two hits and two runs with a walk and a strikeout and Kirby Yates pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

J.A. Happ pitched six innings giving up four hits and a run with two walks and three strikeouts.  Joe Biagini won his third game of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit with two strikeouts, Jesse Chavez pitched an inning with a strikeout and Roberto Osuna saved his 12th game of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit and he struck out one. 

Jacoby Ellsbury drew a walk, Rob Refsnyder hit a double and Carlos Beltran had a hit and drew a walk.  Chase Headley had two hits, Austin Romine had a hit and Didi Gregorius had a hit.  Aaron Hicks had an RBI, Refsnyder and Headley each hit a double and the Yankees were 1-8 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.  Ellsbury and Headley each had a stolen base.  Refsnyder had an outfield assist. 

Josh Donaldson had a hit, Edwin Encarnacion had a hit and Justin Smoak had a hit and an RBI.  Russell Martin had a hit, Devon Travis drew a walk and Kevin Pillar had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk.  Drew Barney had a hit and two RBI, Ezequiel Carrera had a hit and Encarnacion hit a double.  Smoak hit a homerun and the Jays were 2-6 with runners in scoring position and left one man on base.  Pillar had a stolen base. 

In the second Hicks had an RBI groundout to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the fourth Smoak hit a solo homerun to tie the game at one.  In the seventh Pillar hit an RBI single and Barney hit a two run single to give the Jays a 4-1 lead and that would be the final score of the game. 

The Yankees have lost two in a row and will try to salvage the final game of the three game series on Wednesday night.
