Mistakes galore haunt Yankees in 8-1 loss to Blue Jays

Bautista helps Blue Jays beat Yankees 9-5 in final game in Toronto

Bautista helps Blue Jays beat Yankees 9-5 in final game in Toronto

Ryan Goins, who at best should be some kind of toy cannon in a lineup full of mashers but who instead has the most hits of any Blue Jays player with runners in scoring position despite his overall.228 average, clubbed his second grand slam of the season Friday night as the Blue Jays tore into Masahiro Tanaka (12-12) for three homers in an 8-1 win over the Yankees in the first game of the final three home games at Rogers Centre.

The New York Yankees plan to get below the luxury tax threshold for the 2018 season, which rises to $197 million next year. The 27-year-old took the loss Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles when he had his shortest outing of the season, allowing six hits, two walks, five earned runs and one home run while striking out four in four innings.

The Yanks failed to score through the first three at-bats thanks to a few defensive gems by Toronto, which left the window wide open for the Blue Jays to take the lead in the third. There's no chance of that happening, but given the fact the Blue Jays aren't playing for anything and the only outfield prospect getting a look (Hernandez) is doing so in left, manager John Gibbons has adopted a no foul, no harm approach. Coupled with Boston's 5-4 win over Cincinnati, New York (85-68) fell four games behind the first-place Red Sox in the American League East division standings. He fakes like he's throwing the ball back to the pitcher, transferring it to his glove in the process.

Goins followed with his second career grand slam. Martin's homer was his 13th of the Year and the Blue Jays extended their lead to 4-1. The crowd has given him an ovation at each at-bat during this homestand, although he is in an 0-for-14 drought after going 0-for-2 with two walks and an RBI on Friday. The Yankees will send out right-hander Sonny Gray (9-11, 3.38 ERA) against Blue Jays right-hander Joe Biagini (3-11, 5.33).

After batting.207 with 10 home runs in July and August, Judge has picked up his pace considerably in September. "They've all seen him do it many a time".

Frazier was on second base in the top of the third against the Toronto Blue Jays and retreated to the bag after Jose Bautista made a nice play to snag a well-hit ball by Jacoby Ellsbury. He is 3-6 with a 3.29 ERA in nine starts with the Yankees. In the other three starts, he went 3 2/3, 3 1/3 and 1 1/3 innings. He cracked a line drive on a 1-2 pitch for his third homer in only 19 games this season.
