Stanton, Yanks hope for encore vs. Jays

Blue Jays set sights for playoffs

Severino went 6-1 with a 2.24 ERA in 15 road starts compared to 8-5 with a 3.71 ERA at home. "You want to get the first one out of the way and then you can relax".

"This team is a fun team to watch on TV, so I was excited to be able to come over here and get a fresh opportunity". "But I got some air high-5s".

"Every pitch, it just seemed like he was in a really good place", Boone said.

Giancarlo Stanton hit two home runs on Opening Day as the Yankees - one of the favourites to clinch the World Series - secured a 6-1 victory against the Blue Jays.

"You could feel the energy in the stadium", Pillar said. "It was similar to my first one ever".

The Blue Jays will send out right-hander Aaron Sanchez in the second game of the four-game series Friday night to cool off Stanton, who was acquired in the offseason in a trade with the Miami Marlins.

It was the first game and first win for rookie Yankee manager Aaron Boone. "Top to bottom, we're going to be tough". Drury also singled home a run in the fourth. Austin hit a two-run drive in the fifth and a solo shot in the seventh.

Toronto took its first lead of the season on Smoak's RBI single in the first, then took a 2-0 on Smoak's RBI double in the third off CC Sabathia.

Speed has been a staple of Pillar's play for the better part of the past four seasons.

NY may have an imposing lineup that eventually heats up, but look for Happ to hold the opposition's bats in check and lead Toronto to an Opening Day victory. Tanaka was seen visibly upset after a few fly balls he gave up, but he retired 13 straight to finish his night. The first pitch will be at 7:07 p.m. ET. Betances and Aroldis Chapman retired the final six batters in order. His number #32 will now hang forever at Blue Jays home games. To keep them off the basepaths, off the board with the power they got, it's a good sign.

"He looks good", Gibbons said. Donaldson's throws to first base were noticeably weak. We may need to DH him a little bit more till that comes back.

"I think there's going to be some lean years in Detroit but that's what rebuildings are made of, we're seeing a lot of teams do it in major league baseball and I don't disagree with it", said Siddall, who has previously played for the Tigers. There were four ground balls that he fielded and each throw was a cause for concern.

Halladay died last November when the small sport plane he was piloting crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. Gregorius credited him with only three RBIs. That translates to "Giancarlo, you can not stop it!"

Ellsbury, who is rehabilitating at the Yankees' minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., is eligible to return to the team on Thursday.

In the video tribute voiced by Jays broadcaster Dan Shulman, former teammates praised Halladay for his competitiveness and his work ethic, a hallmark of his brilliant, 16-year major league career. The move is retroactive to March 28.

Hicks suffered an intercostal strain on his right side, basically the same injury as his previously injured oblique that cost him a bunch of time last season.

His clutch, game-defining steal of home Saturday helped clinch a 5-3 win over the division rival New York Yankees. He made five starts against the Blue Jays in 2017 and compiled a 3-1 record against them with a 4.20 ERA and 35 strikeouts. He's 2-2 with a a 2.40 ERA in 13 career games against NY, including three starts.
