Just like on Opening Day, the Jays’ lineup got mowed down by Luis Severino as the young Yankee ace held Toronto to just three hits over seven innings.
Things worth mentioning…
- There isn’t much, really. Teoscar Hernandez was the only one who really did anything with the bat today. He hit a homer off of Severino to break the shutout in the sixth inning. Otherwise, Justin Smoak had a double and Kevin Pillar hit a single early on in the game. Yawn.
- The Jays did run into some bad luck, I guess. Didi Gregorious opened the scoring with an Extremely Yankee Stadium home run, yet Lourdes Gurriel smacked a ball with a higher hit likelihood that was caught by Aaron Judge. Such is life.
- Jaime Garcia was OK, going five-and-a-third allowing four runs, one of which came as an inherited run by Seung-hwan Oh. Danny Barnes gave up an unearned run in the eighth and then John Axford had a clean ninth.
- That sucked! Enjoy your Sunday!
