It was the week that was, Toronto manager John Gibbons said with his usual good humor before the Blue Jays dropped a 6-0 decision to the division-rival Yankees on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.
Russell Martin signed a five-year contract with the Blue Jays to be the everyday catcher, but he’s had a surprising amount of work in the infield during his time in Toronto.
Toronto won eight times on the road against the Yankees last season, and 13 times overall, which were both single-season highs. It also marked the first time the Blue Jays won a season series in New York since 2003. That was last year, though, and after winning the series opener on Tuesday night, the Yankees […]
Carlos Correa snapped an 0-for-15 slump by hitting a line-drive single to center field with the bases loaded in the 13th inning to score Tony Kemp, who had led off the inning with a triple, to send the Astros to a 3-2 win over the Orioles on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.

The Blue Jays have decided to give right-hander Aaron Sanchez an extra day of rest, and they will instead use lefty J.A. Happ in Thursday’s series finale against the Yankees.
Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez saw his first game action on Tuesday night since being placed on the disabled list on May 3 with a strained right hamstring. The 14-time All-Star began a rehab assignment with Double-A Trenton at ARM & HAMMER Park and went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the team’s designated hitter against […]
