NEW YORK (AP) – Gleiber Torres participated in all New York races, holding Homer from Jose Berias in the fourth inning and two-morning single, leading the Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3. On Wednesday, their 15th victory in 17 games.
A participant in the All-Star Game in the first two seasons, which declined in 2020 and 21, Torres regained the lead in two series by performing Trevor Richards ’single in the sixth inning. In the last 11 games Torres has made four home runs. In total, he scored 0.222 with five homers and 18 RBIs
New York won the seventh straight game and became the best in the major leagues with a score of 22-8, the best of 30 games since 2003. The Yankees are 13-0 when they score five or more runs.
Toronto has lost four in a row and seven out of nine this season. On a sloppy day for Blue Jace Bo Bischet failed to move to third place on the wrong field after his double in the fifth half. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. then struck, hit the ground with a bat and clicked the lumber on his left knee.
After Isti Kiner-Falefa’s Yankees short stop short of Santiago Espinal’s short out in the sixth for his first two mistakes, Alejandro Kirk tripped over second base and was scored by Torres after initially rebounding.
There seemed to be no carryover from the Yankees ’6-5 victory the night before, a game that became tense and saw the three Blue Jays thrown out. Guerrero suffered from a serve in the first inning, which caused no problems.
Jameson Thayon (3-1) allowed the first three Toronto hitters to reach, then calmed down and allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings.
Torres put the Yankees ahead 3-1 after Anthony Ritz and DJ LeMahieu were singled out in the fourth. Berias left fastball 0-2 over a plate that Torres left 361 feet into the short porch of the right field.
Clay Holmes got Guerrero to the ground in a double inning game with two on seventh.
Espinal doubled, leading ninth against Aroldis Chapman, striker № 9 Raimel Tapia walked, and George Springer made a sacrifice. Bischet killed a long drive and then hit when he swung under 100 miles per hour, and Guerrero jumped out when Chapman remained perfect in eight chances of survival.
Berias gave up five runs and five strokes in 5 1/3 innings, increasing his ERA to 5.82.
Toronto loaded the base with no exits in the first, when Springer walked, Bishet distinguished himself, and Guerrero was hit by a sinker on his left elbow. Theoscar Hernandez went into force and then struck out Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and fired Kirk for a foul.
Hernandez reached the singles in the backyard, leading sixth – he was originally called up by first baseman referee Shane Livensparger, but the call was canceled in a video review – and scored a goal against Matt Chapman from Michael King.
GM Yankee Brian Cashman has said he will not publicly discuss whether to negotiate contracts with Aaron Judge. An outfielder is eligible for arbitration, a hearing is possible until June 24, and may become a free agent after the World Series. The judge rejected an eight-year contract worth $ 230.5 million to $ 234.5 million, the difference in this year’s salary will be determined by arbitration, and said he does not intend to negotiate after the end of the season.

Danny Jansen, who has gone with a tense slant since April 10, played five innings behind the plate and went with a score of 1 to 2 with a double for Dunedin Class A against Tampa.
