Yankees settle for series split as Severino's great day gets wasted

Yankees settle for series split as Severino's great day gets wasted

NY is also 4-1 in Severino's last five starts, and 2-7 in Severino's last nine starts with nine days' rest.

Justin Smoak had a tying two-run homer off Luis Severino in the sixth inning, Josh Donaldson homered against Tyler Clippard in the eighth and the Blue Jays rallied for a 3-2 win on Sunday and a four-game split.

After walking leadoff hitter Kevin Pillar to open the home first and having him swipe second with Donaldson up, Severino struck out Donaldson swinging and Bautista looking in front of Morales grounding out to the right side.

Instead, in reality, Biagini ended up giving three runs, while the Jays were stiffled at the plate. Of the three runs Biagini gave up, only one was earned. "He had a little tough patch early on where he lost the strike zone, but as his outing went along he got better and better".

One of the more under-appreciated arts of starting pitching is sequencing-the way a pitcher uses his catalogue differently each time through the order. He had it all working, had a good curve ball today, good fastball.

Moving along to the top of the sixth inning with Liriano smooth sailing while riding the scoreless waves, that stood no longer when Aaron Judge stepped up to the dish as the 25-year-old sensation took the left-hander's offering to right-centre field for his league leading 18th home run of the season, a two-run shot that would drive in Sanchez who singled beforehand, forcing John Gibbons to make his first relief call of the night to one of his right-handers in Danny Barnes. It was the 11th multihomer game of his career. By Statcast estimates, Grilli gave up about 1,150 feet of home runs.

The victory tied the four-game series 2-2.

After throwing 105 pitches, Stroman was replaced in the seventh by left-handed reliever Aaron Loup. Joe Smith pitched the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished for his 12th save. It's hard simply because I like the guy so much, everybody does.

The Yankees tacked on another run on Holliday's RBI double in the seventh but Travis's sac fly gave the Jays the 7-5 lead they wouldn't relinquish. Toronto's Devon Travis replied with a sacrifice fly off Adam Warren in the bottom half.

Montgomery (3-4) allowed three hits and three walks over six innings.

He followed that up with another strong performance in 2016, registering a slash line of.300/.332/.454, connecting on 11 home runs and driving in 50 runs.

"We were able to get a couple of runs across and it looked like it might hold up but it just didn't", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. NY sits atop the division, three games up on the Orioles.

Holliday added: "It feels like he's hitting a ball every day where I'm like, 'Whoa.' You combine 6-8, 280 and a great swing".

Aaron Judge got it going in the fourth inning with a single to right field, then stole second, and advanced to third on an error to get into scoring position for Matt Holliday.

"Great way to start four days here", NY manager Joe Girardi said. At the same time, it was an important series, obviously they're a very good team and we're playing better baseball as of late. Lucas Duda hit two homers - a two-run shot in the second and a solo blast in the fifth - for NY.

All nine Toronto starters had at least one hit by the end of the fifth.

Toronto entered Sunday with a record of 27-29 and sat 6.5 games behind the Yankees for first place in the American League East Division. For Pineda, it was his lowest strikeout total since fanning none in a start on June 22, 2015, against Philadelphia.
