Tanaka Surrenders Three Homers In New York Yankees Blowout Loss

Not since 2009, their last world championship season, have the Yankees won a single-season series at Toronto.

Bellinger hit a three-run homer in the third off Jeff Samardzija (9-15), topping the NL rookie mark set by Wally Berger in 1930 and matched by Frank Robinson in 1956. He became Newsday's national baseball writer in 2012.

The 2017 Yankees weren't supposed to be a playoff team, and Tanaka, perhaps with another $100-million deal on the horizon, had plenty of motivation to pitch like a Cy Young candidate.

And so Bautista grinds away, his manager - bless him - still suggesting that he "expects him to do something dramatic, anyhow".

The Yankees got on the board early in the top of the first inning.

The Yanks failed to score through the first three at-bats thanks to a few defensive gems by Toronto, which left the window wide open for the Blue Jays to take the lead in the third.

Granted, Tanaka is an experienced, intelligent, skilled pitcher that should be the No. 2 behind Severino.

After batting.207 with 10 home runs in July and August, Judge has picked up his pace considerably in September.

As for Tatum, who plays a Statesman - an American counterpart to the Kingsmen - he just had fun with the accent and the language. Others have questioned the return of Firth - whose character was apparently killed in the first film.

Tanaka improved to 4-1 in his last five starts, bouncing back from a clunker at Texas by going seven strong innings and limiting Baltimore to two runs. But after Tanaka quickly went up 0-and-2 with a slider-splitter combo, he threw another slider that had zero movement, just spinning on a tee, and Goins blasted it over the rightfield wall to put the Yankees to bed.

Mistakes happen. But when they pop up with no warning, and frequently turn into a game-changing home runs, that creates a lot of anxiety for everyone involved. He has been inconsistent in his past five starts, going 0-3 with a 6.17 ERA. Donaldson and Smoak are a combined 4-for-40 against Tanaka, who is 8-3 with a 2.62 ERA against the Blue Jays. All those factors were in his favor.

This is the type of game where the Yankees need Gray to come through and keep the team on the heels of the Red Sox...

Tanaka (12-12), who was 4-1 in his past five starts, gave up eight runs (seven earned) and six hits.

Those are signature pitches for Tanaka, weapons he needs to be effective.

"We know we have a really good shot at making the playoffs, of course, but we still have an opportunity to win the division, so I think our mindset is still on that", Frazier said.

"I just mess around with it sometimes and finally for the first time it works out", Goins said. There's no rhyme or reason for it.
