Yankees hit 4 homers in 8th, Montgomery beats Blue Jays 7-0

It was the fourth 450-foot home run of the year by the Yankees, tied for the most in Major League Baseball.

The Blue Jays third baseman, who returned from a calf injury just a week ago, led Toronto in a 7-5 win over the New York Yankees on Friday with a pair of solo homers, bringing his home run tally to three over his last three games. In his past four outings, all wins, Wainwright has permitted one run over 26 1/3 innings.

Justin Smoak hit a first-pitch slider to center for his 14th homer of the season with two outs in the bottom of the sixth to tie the score at 2.

But for Gardner, the eighth-inning power surge wasn't the most significant part of the day.

Chase Anderson threw seven scoreless innings for the second straight start as Milwaukee edged NY to gain a split of their four-game series. Grilli has now given up nine home run in 17.2 innings.

"His stuff wasn't sharp, his location wasn't good", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

All eight of New York's hits were for extra bases.

Looking forwards to the top half of the seventh, Matt Holliday stepped up looking for more action with Aaron Judge on first as he belted a double to Kevin Pillar in centre field, cutting the Blue Jays lead to 6-5.

Travis came out of the game following that frame, his hand swaddled in ice when he spoke to reporters later, teammates bustling in preparation for their flight to Oakland.

Thanks to a pair of timely homers, the Toronto Blue Jays didn't need a hit with runners in scoring position to beat the New York Yankees.

Alright, one-run game! The Blue Jays answered right back with a run in the bottom of the sixth, unfortunately.

"The curve was my best pitch today", said Montgomery, who improved to 3-4 on the season. Kendrys Morales strikes out swinging.

The rookie left-hander lasted just 4 1/3 innings in his previous outing, May 29 at Baltimore.

"I thought it just wasn't his night and that's rare", Gibbons said.

"He's got really good stuff, starting with a good heater", Maile said.

Adam Warren, Tyler Clippard and Dellin Betances each pitched a hitless inning in relief of Montgomery.

Greinke (7-3) allowed four hits, two walks and two runs (one earned) in seven innings.

"It's very satisfying to see all the work and everything that he's put in and him starting to have continued success", Donaldson said.

Biagini began Judge's first plate appearance cautiously, trying twice to hit the low outside corner with heaters-one a four-seamer, the other a cutter-that were close but ruled balls. Biagini set down 10 straight before Castro and Gregorius doubled in the seventh.

Not only did Grilli surrender four runs in 0.2 innings, he did so on four solo home runs.

Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Russell Martin, and Mark Teixeira were the four Yankees who homered in the same inning against the Red Sox in 2012.

The Yankees were hoping that Jacoby Ellsbury could return from a concussion during the series. Hicks had never before driven in more than three runs in a game.

One opposing team scout said it was clear that Blue Jays batters were struggling. He's unbeaten since April 18 against Boston.

The Toronto Blue Jays left for the West Coast feeling a lot better about themselves after securing a series split Sunday with the American League East-leading New York Yankees.

The game, which drew long lineups hours before first pitch because of the bobblehead giveaway, was a matchup of talented young pitchers with hard-throwing Luis Severino for the Yankees and Marcus Stroman for the Jays.
