Luke to DH
Jay Bruce 1B
Clint Frazier LF
Derek Dietrich 2B
Kyle Higashioka C.
Tyler Wade SS
Thairo Estrada 3B
Greg Allen RF
Deivi García SP
A few starters are mixed with a few people fighting for a roster slot. Jay Bruce, Derek Dietrich, Mike Tauchman, Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada each try to make another good impression and fight for the game time.
Deivi García is in a similar boat when he makes another start. He competes with Domingo Germán and others for fifth place in New York’s starting rotation. He’s facing a packed line-up for the Blue Jays …
Toronto Blue Jays
Guerrero Jr. 1B
Gurriel Jr. LF
It’s one of the reasons the Blue Jays might be battling for a postseason bid this year … their line-up has a lot of potential to get runs on the board. New York gets a taste of their new stallions, Marcus Semien and George Springer, at the top of their order.
Check back here after the first pitch for live updates and some videos during the game. And make sure you update this page to see the most current version as we’ll be adding live scoring and notable games as we play!
Toronto’s Alek Manoah is doing a quick job with the Yankees at the helm of the first. Luke Voit and Jay Bruce strike when New York is okay.
Deivi García was perfect in his first inning of work.
Alek Manoah is locked up! He’s got five strikes through six batters. Manoah hit the page in the second …
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. takes the Blue Jays into the right corner of the field with a double. Derek Dietrich couldn’t handle the relay throw, so Vlad Guerrero Jr. came over from the start and scored a goal.
Three perfect innings with seven (!!) strokes from Manoah.
Deivi García struggles a little with his command, but ends the third with a 6-4-3 double.
Mike Tauchman abandons the perfect game and Clint Frazier follows with a single, but Tauchman was thrown to third place to end the inning.
Lucas Luetge is for the Yankees. Here is the last line from Deivi García: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 2K (44 spaces, 22 hits)
Still a 1-0 game as we go into the sixth inning.
Up to this point we’ve seen Lucas Luetge, Nick Nelson, Asher Wojciechowski and Nick Goody keep the Blue Jays off the scoreboard after Deivi García’s start came to an end.
New York’s bats have finally woken up. The Yankees scored five runs in ninth place. A couple of base-laden walks and a base-clearing double from Max McDowell opened this game wide open.
