Vladimir Guerrero Jr. with the longest single you’ll ever see

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. with the longest single you’ll ever see

Blue Jays right-hander Trent Thornton was flawless through four innings before Urshela doubled to begin the fifth. "That at-bat by Vladdy against the best closer in the league was awesome to watch".

Guerrero Jr. leads all big league rookies with 26 RBIs since the All-Star break. Mike Tauchman and Mike Ford each had solo home runs for the two Yankees runs. Ten years later, he was just as good, allowing one run on four hits and two walks. Right fielder Aaron Judge initially mishandled the ball against a side wall, and Guerrero slid in safely for the first triple of his career.

"I tried to pitch him up and out and eventually just ended getting him out with low and inside", Chapman said. Part of the game.

"If he connects that thing is going a long, long way". Ozzie Albies went 4 for 5 and hit his 18th homer.

The future is starting to look increasingly bright in Toronto, especially after the team called up another one of its top prospects - 21-year-old outfielder Bo Bichette. "I was kind of in a little bit of disbelief". It is Toronto's longest such streak since a 19-game run in 2010.

"I've never seen somebody hit a double-play ball and get a standing ovation from the fans", Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said.

Happ (9-7) allowed six runs and four hits in five innings.

Urshela has been a different player since arriving in NY, and this season he's a big reason why the team is still in first place despite losing so many key players throughout the year, including Miguel Andujar, who was slated to be the regular third baseman. Five Blue Jays pitchers combined to hold the Yankees to five hits.

Sanchez started in the cleanup spot after missing 16 games because of a strained left groin.


In the fifth inning, the Yankees loaded the bases with two out.

Sanchez later took a foul tip off the knuckles of his bare hand, but said it wasn't serious. With the Yankees turning to a reliever today, I think Toronto can jump out on him and be able to pick up another win at home today. Fellow righty Jason Adam was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.

REDS 5, CUBS 2: Trevor Bauer fanned 11 in his Reds home debut, and Aristides Aquino homered again as Yasiel Puig's replacement, leading Cincinnati over Chicago. Of his past 29 hits, 20 have been for extra bases. Six Yankees pitchers combined to walk eight and strike out 14.

Whether it's their in-game performances or the way they interact in the clubhouse or the dugout, you can certainly sense not only the camaraderie but the competitive spirit as the three dynamic rookies push each other to be great. Boone said Torres might return Sunday. Knowing that, it's got to be Rangers or pass for me. Chad Green opened on the mound for the Yankees, but after facing four batters in an inning of work, he was replaced by lefty Stephen Tarpley. It was the last pitch Waguespack would throw in his 3 2/3 innings. "That's really encouraging", Boone said. "Going into the game, I already knew I didn't have Giles". He underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow.

In the final seven weeks of the season, the Jays have nine series against teams now in a playoff position.

Toronto shortstop Bo Bichette drove a single into left field for his second hit of the game, but Chapman stuck out Cavan Biggio to end the game.

Thirteen pitches, eight of which jumped on Guerrero at 99-plus miles per hour. Stanton (120.6 miles per hour on March 28) has the hardest hit of 2019. The Yankees starter had struggled in recent outings.

Before the game the Jays recalled recent addition Neil Ramirez to give the team another right-handed option out of the bullpen.
