Judge HRs twice, Yankees beat Jays 6-2 to extend WC lead

Aaron Judge hit two of New York’s five home runs and the Yankees extended their AL wild-card lead by defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 Thursday night. Gleyber Torres and Anthony Rizzo also connected off Blue Jays starter Robbie Ray, and Brett Gardner added a solo homer as New York (91-68) slimmed its magic number to clinch a postseason spot to two. The Yankees are two games ahead of Boston and idle Seattle, both 89-70, after the Red Sox lost to last-place Baltimore 6-2 earlier Thursday. Toronto trails New York by three games.

Boone communicated reporters he hopes the Yankees can get Loaisiga back this season. “Hopefully this is something that’s a little bit of a timeout and we get him back for the stretch drive,” Boone said.

New York Yankees set to acquire Joey Gallo from Texas Rangers for six minor leaguers

The New York Yankees are concluding a deal to acquire outfielder Joey Gallo from the Texas Rangers, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night. The deal is pending a medical review. The Rangers will get right-handers Glenn Otto and Randy Vasquez, second baseman Ezequiel Duran, shortstop Josh Smith, second baseman/outfielder Trevor Hauver and outfielder Everson Pereira from New York, sources told Passan. Gallo was a late scratch from the Rangers’ lineup ahead of Wednesday night’s game versus the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, with speculation that a trade was in the works. That proved to be the case, with the Yankees swooping in and acquiring arguably the […]

Judge, Sánchez drive Yanks to blowout win over Royals

Yankees hitters have clawed out of an early season slump with a string of clutch, late-game hits. The Bronx Bombers needed no such fireworks in this one — a start-to-finish shellacking that’s inspiring confidence ahead of a weekend series in Boston. “It’s good to see these guys starting to get a little bit of that swagger,” manager Aaron Boone said. Aaron Judge homered for the first of his three hits, Gary Sánchez connected for the second consecutive game and New York got its first blowout triumph in a month, defeating the Kansas City Royals 8-1 Thursday. Judge got the Yankees started with a solo […]

Frazier’s 11th-inning HR lifts slumping Yankees over Rays

Clint Frazier hit a game-ending, two-run homer with two outs in the 11th inning after making a game-saving catch in the eighth, and the slumping New York Yankees defeat the rival Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 Tuesday night. The righty-hitting Frazier turned on a slider from right-hander Andrew Kittredge (5-1) and stood at the plate to admire the drive, capping a tight finish in which both teams came up short on potential rallies. One of those stalled efforts came in the eighth, when Frazier dove and needed every inch of his mitt to catch Joey Wendle’s soft-hit liner to strand two. New York ended a four-game slide and […]

Manoah dominates to win debut, Blue Jays split DH with Yanks

A poised and confident Alek Manoah dominated the Yankees with six innings of two-hit ball to win his major league debut, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated New York 2-0 on Thursday in a doubleheader opener. New York rebounded to win the second game 5-3 behind Aaron Judge’s tying, two-run homer in the third inning off Robbie Ray and Gary Sánchez’s go-ahead solo drive in the fourth. Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette hit back-to-back homers in the third inning off Domingo Germán (4-3) in the makeup of Wednesday night’s rainout. Bichette provided a 3-1 lead in the second match with a three-run homer, but New York beat Toronto for […]

Gerrit Cole gives New York Yankees best starters’ stretch since 1932

Gerrit Cole shook off rare control problems to pitch four-hit ball over seven innings and give the Yankees their most dominant stretch of starting pitching in 89 years, leading New York over the Chicago White Sox 7-0 Saturday for a five-game winning streak. Cole (6-2) allowed four singles in seven innings, struck out seven and walked as many as three for the first time since Aug. 31. Rebounding from his worst outing this campaign, he lowered his ERA to 1.81 and ended the day with a 100.8 mph fastball that Andrew Vaughn took for a called third strike, Cole’s fastest pitch this season and the fourth fastest of […]

Yanks rally past Nats 4-3 in 10th, Scherzer strikes out 14

The smallest of hits decided a huge pitching matchup. Max Scherzer overwhelmed batters to dominate a Cy Young Award-winning duel with Corey Kluber, reaching double-digit strikeouts for the 100th time. After striking out three times versus Scherzer, Gleyber Torres blooped a tying single in the ninth inning and won the game with a 50-foot single into a five-man infield in the 11th that gave the New York Yankees a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. “Especially with the five-man infield, you don’t usually expect to see an infield single like that to win a ballgame,” Aaron Judge said. “But Gleyber’s been hitting the ball — he’ll hit it right at […]

Kluber gets win, Yankees hit 3 HR in 5-1 win over Orioles

Corey Kluber has his best start in two years to gain his first victory for the Yankees, Kyle Higashioka homered again as he gains playing time from Gary Sánchez and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Tuesday night. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton also homered — the Yankees are 9-0 when they go deep in the same game, including the playoffs. New York stopped a four-game skid at Camden Yards and at 10-13 moved into a tie with the Orioles for last in the AL East. Kluber (1-2), who signed an $11 million, one-year contract as a free agent, permitted one run and six hits with five […]

Ryu sharp as Blue Jays top Yankees

Hyun Jin Ryu cruised into the seventh inning, Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez homered, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees 7-3 on Tuesday night. Ryu (1-1) permitted only an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and limiting the Yankees to four hits and a walk. The Blue Jays ace retired 12 in a row after DJ LeMahieu had a leadoff infield single in the first. “Vintage Ryu,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. “When he takes the mound, we know we have a good chance to win. Ryu threw 68 of 95 pitches for strikes. “The way it plays during the game, I see which […]
