Part of the game. "I'm just going to continue to work hard with my hitting coach and all the other coaches and see what happens".

Tanaka is 0-2 with a 10.41 ERA in his last six road starts, which includes a loss at Toronto on June 4 when he allowed a pair of home runs in a four-run fifth that led to a 4-3 defeat.

After diving head-first into the bag at third, Guerrero reeled off a couple of fist pumps and fired up both the dugout and the boisterous fans, who are clearly getting a thrill at some of the rookie exploits with this team.

"I felt good from the start, it just came down to three pitches that weren't over the heart of the plate", Thornton lamented to the Jays' official website. "I looked over, I saw (the umpire) call it fair". It is Toronto's longest such streak since a 19-game run in 2010.

Chapman's 25th homer, a line shot to the left-field bullpen in the first, ended the All-Star third-baseman's 0-for-16 skid.

LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 144 hits and has 79 RBIs.

The Yankees have hit multiple home runs in nine straight games, extending their season-best streak.

Blue Jays reliever Jason Adam (1-0) recorded his first win in the majors.

Waguespack held the Yankees power-hitting lineup at bay until the sixth inning. On-base struggles notwithstanding, Sanchez remains one of the more potent catchers in the game, and his position means his power contributions are of slightly more unique to NY than those of other Yankees' mashers.

Tim Mayza replaced Reid-Foley and tossed a flawless sixth, but gave up Ford's third homer in the seventh. Despite strong peripherals (10 K/9 to 2.4 BB/9, 4.18 K/BB), Holder has struggled to keep the ball in the yard at times, blowing his ERA up to 6.31 (4.45 FIP) across 34 appearances.

Sanchez later took a foul tip off the knuckles of his bare hand, but said it wasn't serious. "It was special to get it against the Yankees and here in Toronto". Hernandez, who homered twice Friday, greeted righty Chance Adam with a three-run drive into the second deck, his 18th.

Urshela had back-to-back, two-homer games against Baltimore and Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday. Six Yankees pitchers combined to walk eight and strike out 14. Torres has missed the past three games. Boone said Torres might return Sunday.

If the Toronto Blue Jays are going to have success against the New York Yankees this season, it seems there is no place but home. Ozzie Albies went 4 for 5 and hit his 18th homer. Tarpley walked four in 2 1/3 innings. 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".

Blue Jays: RHP Ken Giles (elbow) was unavailable and may need to go on the injured list, Montoyo said after the game. He underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow. The Jays are 48-71 on the season, 21-35 at home and 58-57 with the under.
