Smoak, Donaldson Homer To Rally Blue Jays Over Yankees, 3-2

Smoak, Donaldson Homer To Rally Blue Jays Over Yankees, 3-2

Joe Smith (2-0) struck out two in a ideal eighth, and Roberto Osuna struck out Aaron Judge, Holliday and Starlin Castro on 11 pitches for his 13th save in 16 chances.

New York Yankees' Brett Gardner, right, celebrates with teammate Aaron Judge after hitting a solo home run off Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Jason Grilli during the eighth inning of a baseball game in Toronto, Saturday, June 3, 2017.

"It's impressive", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of his team's power. As good as he's been overall this year, the long ball has been an issue. "There's really nothing that you would rather be doing to kind of get a gauge of how it's going for you".

The previous Major League Baseball pitcher to allow four home runs in one inning was Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka on September 21 a year ago at Tampa Bay. When he faced them May 3, he was limited to three innings (five runs, six hits, three walks) in a no-decision because tightness in his arm. Of the three runs Biagini gave up, only one was earned.

Montgomery, who walked three, struck out five and thought his changeup was his best pitch in the game, did experience some trouble early but pitched out of it. The Blue Jays close out their four-game series against New York Sunday afternoon.

The three runs scored off Biagini early were largely the result of poor fielding by the home side, starting in the third inning when NY first baseman Rob Refsnyder got on because a fielding error by short stop Troy Tulowitzki and then stole second. Good fastball. He's just slowly turning into a pretty good-looking starter.

The Yankees roared back in the sixth inning, scoring four runs to cut their deficit to 5-4. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki booted a grounder by Rob Refsnyder, who stole second and scored on a bloop double by Aaron Hicks that bit the right-field line.

Mesoraco completed the Reds' comeback from a 2-0 ninth-inning deficit with his first career walkoff homer, sending the Braves to their third straight loss and fifth in the last six games. Kevin Pillar flied out to center to end the inning.

"Everything worked well for me today", Liriano said. What happens down the road this season, I couldn't tell you yet. He has 30 RBIs, one shy of his total previous year.

Hicks and Judge hit back-to-back RBI doubles in the third.

Biagini retired 10 batters in a row until Castro led off the seventh with a bloop double to left.

"Great way to start four days here", NY manager Joe Girardi said.

Smoak matched his home run total of last season with his 14th of the year.

"But I am getting a few pitches to hit as of late and I haven't missed them", said the 2015 AL MVP who was activated from the DL last week. "It's everyday. And that's what we need". You've got a lot of frustrated hitters out there. "There are definitely some at-bats I feel like I could do a better job at".

That varied sequencing and unpredictability is how Biagini and Maile got through a unsafe Yankees lineup three times Saturday, with NY boasting only four hits-three of them weakly-hit flares, the other Judge's thunderous double-to show for it. Biagini won't be happy with the three runs on his line (only one of them earned) but reaching 100 pitches, and pitching seven innings, for the first time in his career is big for a second-year pitcher still finding his feet as a starter. He was replaced by J.P. Howell. "I think that was a huge huge win for us for the guys". "We really can't keep this pace up, especially when you've got seven guys down there". "It was just one of those things where when we needed a big pitch, that seemed to be the one that was really working".
