Yankees, Blue Jays lineups for Saturday | Starlin Castro dropped down

Yankees, Blue Jays lineups for Saturday | Starlin Castro dropped down

Severino is expected to start the AL wild-card game should the Yankees play in that matchup.

With Frazier on base following a leadoff double in the third, Jose Bautista made a running catch just in front of the right field warning track on Jacoby Ellsbury's one-out drive.

While the Yanks bats remained silent through six frames, the Jays broke the game open with one swing of the bat.

The homer gave Judge 120 runs scored this season, extending his American League lead.

The Blue Jays pulled even in the bottom half with an unearned run.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was displeased with Frazier's mistake and a first-inning fielding error by second baseman Starlin Castro that led to Toronto's opening run.

In Seattle, Nelson Cruz hit a game-ending two-run homer in the ninth.

Dortmund crush Gladbach with Aubameyang hat-trick
Asked if PSG had wanted to sign him prior to Henrique's arrival in June, he told RMC: "Yes, exactly". Aubameyang was expected to leave Dortmund after four successful seasons in Germany this summer.

Jaime Garcia ($12 million), Matt Holliday ($13 million), Todd Frazier ($12 million) and Alex Rodriguez ($20 million) also come off the books at the end of the season. Goins was down in the count 0-2 when he launched a grand slam into the right-field seats. Then he waits for Frazier to lift his foot off the bag - which only happens for about a second - and puts his glove on his opponent's hip.

For the second time this season, the player known more for his staunch defence than his risky bat cracked a grand slam that helped the Blue Jays to a convincing 8-1 victory over the New York Yankees at Rogers Centre on Friday night.

Tanaka, however, took the mound with a 3.34 ERA over his last 14 outings, a stretch that followed a nightmare first 2 1/2 months in which he gave up at least five runs in six of his first 14 starts. Biagini has a 1.40 WHIP with 91 strikeouts over 109 2/3 innings.

Goins followed with his second career grand slam. "I was in a good count (of 0-2 against Goins) and it's a big problem that I couldn't pitch out of that situation". They led the Twins by 6 ½ games going into Friday night's action.

- The Yankees also began the night trailing the first-place Boston Red Sox by three games in the AL East. Of the six hits he allowed in 5 2/3 innings, three cleared the fence.

- Outfielder Aaron Hicks, sidelined since September 3 with a left oblique strain, will play in a simulated game in Tampa on Saturday.

I guess if we want, we can close our eyes and pretend it's 2018, since the next time the New York Yankees are at the Rogers Centre it will be Opening Day, March 29, when they play the first of four games here against the Toronto Blue Jays.
