In so many ways the heart and soul of this team, Donaldson connected for his sixth homer, fourth in the last five games, two of them in Friday's 7-5 win. My actions didn't just affect me, they affected this organization as well. "What he's done his first two months has been as good as it gets", Girardi said.

Gardner started the barrage, leading off the inning by launching his 12th homer of the season over the right-field wall. Ezequiel Carrera grounds out to shallow infield, Didi Gregorius to Chris Carter. He hadn't allowed more than one run in his previous three starts. Toronto won 6-4 Tuesday when Kendrys Morales hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth. "We need guys that are going to come in and have great at-bats and professional at-bats all day and he's in one of those zones right now when he's getting those pitches to hit, he's very rarely missing it".

Smoak added to the lead in the third, scoring Jose Bautista from third on a sac fly.

None of this is to say the Blue Jays are better off with Maile behind the dish. But Travis hit into a double play. Justin Smoak to third.

Smoak matched his home run total of last season with his 14th of the year. Gary Sanchez led off with a single before Judge launched his 18th homer of the season into the second deck to spell the end of Liriano's night and Castro hit a two-run homer off Danny Barnes.

Manager John Gibbons kept the 34-year-old backstop out of the lineup for the second consecutive game on Saturday in an effort to keep the veteran healthy.

Counter Protests And Rallys Draw Thousands In Portland
Officers say they want protesters to stay with their groups and not cross the street to escalate tensions. Police confiscated the bat, and he was then caught on camera clashing with counter-protesters.

The Yankees added a run in the seventh after Castro hit a duck snort to left that left-fielder Darwin Barney broke poorly on, for two bases, and then the next hitter, Gregorius placed the ball nearly to the same spot, scoring Castro. Stroman needed 26 pitches to get out of the inning.

He lasted seven innings, giving up two runs on six hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. Indians pitchers fanned 59 in the four-game series.

Tulowitzki, who came into the game with a career.985 fielding percentage, bobbled a ground ball from Rob Refsnyder with one out.

Donaldson homered off Michael Pineda (6-3) in the first, then made it 6-4 with a homer off Jonathan Holder in the sixth.

Jason Castro singled home two runs in the ninth inning as part of a three-run rally that helped Minnesota snap a four-game losing streak.

However, the Jays are reporting that the X-rays have come back negative and Travis is considered day to day. With a bang-bang play at first, the Blue Jays only got one out, and the Yankees scored Brett Gardner in from third, extending their lead to 2-0. Happ allowed two runs in four innings against Cincinnati last week, his first start after missing almost six weeks because of a sore elbow.

Manchester police arrest man, 25, in bomb probe
On Friday, the police said a man was arrested in Moss Side, an impoverished neighborhood nestled south of Manchester city center. Wearing an Ariana Grande T-shirt, she said she had won VIP tickets to the Monday night concert at Manchester Arena .

The Blue Jays third baseman, who returned from a calf injury just a week ago, led Toronto in a 7-5 win over the New York Yankees on Friday with a pair of solo homers, bringing his home run tally to three over his last three games.

But the Bringer of Rain seemed to rain on his own parade. But he's got to feel good about that.

The ball left Donaldson's bat at 100 m.p.h. and travelled 384 feet to right centre-field to the delight of the sellout crowd of 46,782 with the Rogers Centre roof closed. Holliday followed with a long RBI double to center.

The Yankees have a pretty good stable of hitters this year.

"It's awesome", marvelled Donaldson of Smoak's dinger production, now at 14, matching his HR output from all of 2016.
