Toronto tops Yankees behind Estrada's seven shutout innings — Blue Jays notebook

He returned to NY on Wednesday for further examination. Manager Joe Girardi says the team was happy with the results, but he will wait until returning home Friday before making a decision on Sabathia's next turn. He said he was frustrated because the knee has been healthy since the start of the season. "It's been healthy all year. It's kind of going back to how I was pitching before".

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Yankees are -143 money line favorites versus the Blue Jays, who have odds of +120 to pull off the upset in Toronto.

"Most of the time solo homers aren't going to hurt you but I gave up three tonight", said Tepesch. Gray has now gone eight consecutive starts of at least 6 IP and 2 ER or fewer. He rocked a liner up the middle, bringing home a pair of runs adn giving the Yankees a 8-5 lead.

Entering play Tuesday, Donaldson had not homered in 35 career at-bats against Sabathia, striking out more times (9) than he had hits (8).

Gray (6-7), who made his second start for the Yankees since being dealt from Oakland on July 31, went six innings and allowed three runs - two earned - on four hits while walking four and striking out six.

NY used two walks and an infield single to load the bases with two outs in the sixth, but Dominic Leone got Cooper to fly out.

"We needed that", Frazier said.

James Reeves, SP, Tampa Yankees (New York Yankees) - Did not pitch in an 11-5 win over St. Lucie. His previous 13 RBIs took 36 games Even though there was no save situation, Gibbons trotted closer Roberto Osuna out for the ninth.

New York, which leads the AL wild card standings, has allowed the opposition to score first in nine of its past 10 games. He is 0-2 as a Yankee.

What we had was midfielders, wingers, scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces. He added: "I think we played everything so we don't lose this game".

"I thought he had a little bit of a limp coming off the field", Girardi said after the game.

Sabathia was returning to NY from Toronto on Wednesday. "But he's here to pitch, wanted to get his debut in". Montgomery, who has pitched 115 2/3 innings so far, set a career high with 139 1/3 innings at Double-A Trenton and Scranton a year ago.

Yankees C Gary Sanchez was back in the starting lineup Tuesday after being benched Sunday and starting at DH Saturday.

The Yankees padded the lead in the eighth via Ronald Torreyes' two-RBI single off Cole, the Jays' sixth pitcher of the night. He had no fielding mishaps. I was letting it rip and then I started to try to pinpoint things towards the end and take a little off and you can't do that with Major League hitters.

"It's really important", Girardi said.

Blue Jays: Toronto optioned LHP Matt Demody to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for Tepesch, while SS Troy Tulowitzki (right ankle) was transferred to the 60-day DL to open a spot on the 40-man roster.

Starting pitcher Sonny Gray, acquired to only pitch the Yankees into the postseason, was merely OK.
