New York Yankees blow lead and lose a tough one in Toronto

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada and the final score was 3-2.  Luis Severino started for the Yankees and he pitched well.  The Yankees offense only managed six hits and no player had more than a hit. 

Severino pitched seven innings giving up six hits and two runs.  He walked one and struck out seven.  Tyler Clippard pitched an inning giving up a hit and a run with a strikeout and he lost his third game of the season. 

Marcus Stroman pitched six innings giving up five hits and two runs with a walk and four strikeouts.  Aaron Loup pitched an inning giving up a hit, Joe Smith won his second game of the season pitching a perfect inning with two strikeouts and Roberto Osuna saved his 13th game of the season striking out the side in his one inning. 

Brett Gardner had a hit, Gary Sanchez drew a walk and Aaron Judge had a hit.  Matt Holliday had a hit and two RBI, Aaron Hicks had a hit and Didi Gregorius had a hit.  Chase Headley had a hit, Holliday hit a double and the Yankees were 1-7 with runners in scoring position and left three men on base.  Headley and Judge each had a stolen base and Gregorius was caught stealing. 

Kevin Pillar had a hit and drew a walk, Josh Donaldson had a hit and an RBI and Kendrys Morales had two hits.  Justin Smoak had a hit and two RBI, Devon Travis had a hit and Luke Maile had a hit.  Morales hit a double and Smoak and Donaldson each hit a homerun.  The Blue Jays were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Pillar had a stolen base and Maile committed an error. 

In the fourth Holliday hit an RBI double to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the sixth Holliday hit an RBI ground out to make it 2-0 Yankees.  In the bottom of the sixth Smoak hit a two-run homerun to tie the game at two and in the eighth Donaldson hit a solo homerun to give the Jays a 3-2 lead and that would be the final score. 

The two teams split the four-game series and the Yankees will be off on Monday.  They will return home to take on the Red Sox in a three-game series beginning on Tuesday night.
