Guerrero hits go-ahead triple in 7th, Jays beat Yankees 5-4

He's now hitting.408 with four home runs, nine doubles, and 20 hits in 49 at-bats. Toronto connected three times off homer-prone lefty J.A. Happ (9-7).

Notes: Bichette went 0-for-4 and had his franchise-record 11-game hitting streak to start a big-league career come to an end.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Blue Jays took a 6-1 lead on Jansen's 10th homer of the season after first baseman DJ LeMahieu lost a routine pop foul in the twilight.

Bichette walked and scored in the first, grounded out in the third and fourth and struck out in the seventh. His average dropped from.408 to.385.


That was the apparent sin in the view of home-plate ump Chris Segal, who tossed the Yankee veteran causing him to lose it. Gardner stormed the field and had to be restrained by manager Aaron Boone. Gardner was in the dugout when ejected, apparently for complaining about calls on balls and strikes. Torres has missed four straight. The 34-year-old right-hander also hit two batters, but improved to 9-0 with a 2.12 ERA in 17 starts dating to his no-hitter on May 7 against Cincinnati. Teoscar Hernandez hit two home runs last night and has been a different player since he was recalled from Buffalo earlier this season.

Dustin Garneau drove in two runs with a double in a five-run eighth inning as the A's pulled away.

Guerrero lined a single off the left field wall in the fifth.

His third groin injury in two seasons is in the past now, too. With the second chance, Jansen didn't wait, hitting the first pitch he faced over the wall in centre. Tim Mayza replaced Waguespack. Bichette finished the night 2-for-5 with three runs driven in. He has given up just one run over his last 12 innings.


The Yankees took a 4-3 lead in the seventh. Sean Reid-Foley got the win on the mound by allowing just one run over five innings, striking out five. If a guy is not 100 per cent, we're not going to use a guy who is not 100 per cent.

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.

The Reds' biggest July trade paid off both ways against the NL Central leaders. And he's taking the Toronto Blue Jays by storm.

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.
