The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 6-3.  Luis Gil started for the Yankees and he struggled with his command, the bullpen did a pretty good job.  The only offense was Brett Gardner hitting a three-run homerun.

Alek Manoah started for the Blue Jays and he pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up five hits and three runs with three walks and four strikeouts.  Trevor Richards pitched an inning with a walk and two strikeouts and earned his sixth win of the season, Adam Cimber pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up two hits and he struck out three and Jordan Romano pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout.  Romano earned his 16th save of the season.

In the fourth a wild pitch gave the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead.  Semien hit a two-run single and the lead was pushed to 3-0.  In the fifth Gardner hit a three-run homerun to tie the game at three.  In the seventh Hernandez hit an RBI single to give the Jays a 4-3 lead.  In the eighth Lamb hit a sac fly making it a 5-3 game and in the ninth Guerrero Jr. added an insurance run with a solo homerun making it 6-3 and that would be the final score. 

The Yankees have lost five games in a row and will try and salvage the fourth and final game of the series on Thursday night.
