Aaron Judge's monster homer leads Yankees to 9-1 romp

Improvements the New York Yankees need to make

The Toronto Blue Jays will play their divisional rival New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

First pitch is set for 7:05 ET on the YES Network and can be heard on WFAN 660/101.9FM. I like Toronto as a big underdog against a NY team that has struggled to string together wins. Toronto lost for the second time in its last nine games and finished 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position.

Blue Jays fourth. Russell Martin doubles to deep left center field. He's now 4-for-38 this season at the Stadium. Friday's final score was 8-5.

Yankees: RHP Luis Severino (3-1, 2.63) starts on extended five days' rest due to an off day Wednesday. The Blue Jays have an over/under record of 7-9-2. Blue Jays 5, Yankees 5. I haven't trusted NY much this year but I'll take them Sunday. The Blue Jays have now won nine of their last 11 games.

When asked after the game what had happened in the four hit three run fourth inning, Gray told Botte that the inning "just kind of got away from me", as if it were a helium balloon he just happened to let go of and not the pounding that it actually was. The bullpen has a 4.30 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 13.6 K/9.

While the season is still young, the Yankees' bullpen has been far from ideal in 2018.

Jets chase Dubnyk, eliminate Wild in Game 5
Still, the Wild understand how improbable a comeback would be heading into a must-win Game 5 on Friday night at Bell MTS Place. Game 1 was the most tentative of the best-of-seven, with both teams trying to get a sense of things and offence at a premium.

Oldest man in modern U.S. history executed
In a recent letter to Mr Vance Jr, he wrote, "Had my Dad been murdered, I would want to know who had done it". He was also convicted for the bombing death of Georgia NAACP attorney Robert Robinson.

Morales is batting.227 this season with one homer and six RBIs in eight games. The team has a slash-line of.283/.377/.538 over its last five games and is 3-2 SU during that span. Prior to the sixth inning, Stroman's only hiccup was in the third when he issued a two-out walk to Brett Gardner and then served up a meatball to the very next batter, which happened to be Aaron Judge. Judge is now the fastest player in baseball history to hit 61 home runs. Montgomery tallied the Quality Start in his previous action, allowing three runs in six innings to the Tigers and he picked up his first win of the season.

Blue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (right shoulder) played catch in Dunedin, Florida, and "felt great", according to manager John Gibbons.

Third baseman Yangervis Solarte and left fielder Curtis Granderson have led Toronto's offense. Per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch, the 25-year-old reached the threshold of 62 home runs by his 201st career game, narrowly beating Mark McGwire's 62 home runs in 205 games.

Compared to his overall season slash line of.255/.314/.416, Solarte didn't do especially well against lefty pitching in 2017, maintaining a slash line of.211/.275/.289 across 142 plate appearances. He will go up against Jays lefty Jamie Garcia, who is 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA. The over has cashed in three of those games, compared to three that've gone under against lefties. Manny Machado hit a pair of solo homers and drove in four runs for Baltimore. The seven-run inning was Toronto's worst of the year; until Saturday, the team hadn't allowed more than six runs in a game. The sloppy defence forced Sabathia from the contest after just 41/3 innings and 71 pitches.

The Yankees scored five runs, all on homers.
