Blue Jays win 5-4 against New York Yankees

Yankees activate top HR hitter Sanchez from IL

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 8-11-2019

The move, announced Saturday, is retroactive to August 9.

Right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo and activated before Saturday's game against the visiting New York Yankees. He's now hitting.408 with four home runs, nine doubles, and 20 hits in 49 at-bats.

MIAMI - Ronald Acua Jr. hit a pair of two-run homers for NL East-leading Atlanta, and Julio Teheran extended his scoreless streak against Miami this season to 24 innings before allowing a run in the seventh.

Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio scored on the play, putting the Blue Jays ahead of NY 5-4 - a lead they maintained for the victory.

After an impressive 2018-19 season in which Danny Green helped the Toronto Raptors win their first ever Larry O'Brien Trophy, the now Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard was in Toronto, taking in a game between the Blue Jays and the New York Yankees. Toronto connected three times off homer-prone lefty J.A. Happ (9-7).

Despite Bichette's evening to remember, the Blue Jays fell 12-6 after starter Thomas Pannone lasted just 2.1 innings, allowing seven earned runs. Of the Jays 43 remaining games, 18 are against division leaders (including eight against the Yanks) and 25 against teams now holding down a playoff spot.

Alex Bregman drove in a run and scored for the Astros, who have won 17 of 20 to open a 10-game lead over Oakland in the AL West.

Yankees center fielder Brett Gardner was restrained from going after home plate umpire Chris Segal with two out in the fourth inning.

CINCINNATI - Trevor Bauer fanned 11 batters in his Reds home debut, and Aristides Aquino homered again as Yasiel Puig's replacement.

He has pitched six times for six innings since the All-Star break, allowing seven hits and with a 4.50 ERA, one win and two saves.

Since arriving on the major-league scene July 29, Bichette has been one of baseball's hottest hitters.

Chapman came on to face pinch-hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who fell behind 0-2, worked back to a full count, hit a foul ball off the fifth deck and finally grounded into a double play to end the 13-pitch encounter. Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto also connected for Cincinnati. After snapping the Yankees' nine-game winning streak on Friday, the ball club has now knocked off the Bronx Bombers in consecutive outings.

On the next at-bat, Mike Tauchman hit a solo homer to cut Toronto's lead to 3-1. The Yankees have not named a starter for Game 2.

METS 7, NATIONALS 6: Todd Frazier clobbered a tying, three-run homer and Michael Conforto then lined a game-ending single as NY stormed back in the ninth inning at home. Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty also went deep.

Adam pitched beautifully against the Yankees (76-41) on a bullpen day for Toronto (49-71) - Wilmer Font started and pitched two innings.
