Yankees at Blue Jays

Blue Jays return home to face Yankees as slim favourites

Blue Jays return home to face Yankees as slim favourites

RANGERS 5, METS 1: Martin Perez allowed three hits over eight innings, Joey Gallo hit his 32nd home run and Texas won at NY for a two-game split.

Toronto's Nick Tepesch (0-2), who was brought up from Triple-A Buffalo for the start, allowed eight hits, including three solo home runs, and five runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless eighth, and the Yankees made the ninth a non-save situation by scoring three runs in the top half, two of them coming in on the fourth hit of the night by Cooper, who initially was to start the game on the bench.

It was the 12th time in his career that Donaldson posted a multi-homer game and the second time this year (both against the Yankees, the last on June 2).

With the Blue Jays leading 2-1 in the third, Donaldson put Sabathia's slider into the second deck for another two-run home run.

Campos has appeared in six games for Toronto this season, posting a 2.08 ERA and striking out 10 over 8 2/3 innings.

Five solid innings from the Yankees' never-ending bullpen - and timely hitting, a rarity for them these days - combined for a 11-5 victory over the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday.

Valdez has started three games for the Blue Jays this season and has struggled in the last two. He allowed four runs in the ninth inning Sunday in a 7-6 loss to the Houston Astros. He deposited a Sabathia offering to left field.

Donaldson's two-run slam in the first, with Jose Bautista on third, gave the Jays a 2-0 lead. To go out today and not have it be where I want it to be is just frustrating.

Tepesch would exit after throwing 81 pitches though 4.1 innings and allowing three homers - two to the aforementioned players and a third to Didi Gregorious. Tepera hit Gary Sanchez and Chase Headley with pitches, then walked Todd Frazier with one out to load the bases.

New York Yankees first baseman Garrett Cooper had a historic night on Wednesday, becoming the first Yankees rookie first baseman to collect four hits in a single game since Joe Collins did so back on May 21, 1950. Donaldson has now accumulated 11 extra base hits (five doubles, six homers) over his last 19 games. His 15th home run of the season came on a 3-0 count and gave Toronto a 4-1 lead.

"I just think honestly it's not missing pitches", said Donaldson when asked about the roll he has been on the last couple of weeks.

The outlook for a return this season already looked doubtful for Tulowitzki after manager John Gibbons told reporters on July 31 that their starting shortstop's right foot was in a cast, but this trip to the 60-day disabled list all but confirms the end to a disappointing season. In his career, Estrada is 4-3 with a 4.68 ERA and 50 strikeouts against the Yankees.
