Donaldson 2 HRs, Blue Jays beat Yankees 7-5; Judge hits 18th

"What he's done his first two months has been as good as it gets", Girardi said.

The Yankees are an attractive draw these days, but the real reason for the fan formation was the limited number of Josh Donaldson bobblehead dolls available with each paid admission. Ezequiel Carrera grounds out to shallow infield, Didi Gregorius to Chris Carter. But that sequence still played an important part in setting the stage for Biagini's next matchup with Judge in the third. Of the three runs Biagini gave up, only one was earned.

Smoak leads major league switch hitters in home runs and RBIs (39). After Aaron Judge worked a walk to load the bases with one out, Matt Holliday hit a 109 miles per hour rocket ... on the ground and right at Josh Donaldson for an inning-ending 5-4-3 double play.

Yeah. Not great. Pineda also hung a slider that inning to Jose Bautista, who just got under it and flew out.

Blue Jays fourth. Luke Maile singles to center field.

Hicks and Judge each extended their hitting streaks to seven games with the doubles.

He followed that up with another strong performance in 2016, registering a slash line of.300/.332/.454, connecting on 11 home runs and driving in 50 runs.

Smoak had three hits, including a two-run homer, scored twice and added a sacrifice fly for the Blue Jays (27-28), who bounced back from a 12-2 loss to NY a night earlier. The Jays trailed 3-0 going to the 8th so John Gibbons went to Jason Grilli, and he got absolutely shelled. Encouraged, Biagini and Maile went right back to the same pitch but lower, maybe to try to get Judge to chase it, maybe because Biagini missed his spot. He will face Luis Severino (4-2, 2.93), who has not lost since May 1 at Yankee Stadium when he allowed eight hits and five runs to the Blue Jays. Who's your player of the game? It was the 11th multihomer game of his career.

Sofia Coppola becomes second woman to win Cannes director prize
Hailed as a "powerhouse performance" by Variety magazine, Kruger said the role had taken a huge emotional toll. For the most part, I was surprised with the representation of female characters on screen in these films".

Donaldson came up in the eighth inning with the score tied at two and blasted a solo shot off of Tyler Clippard to give the Jays the lead and ultimately the game.

So it should come as no surprise that he put that trait on display during his bobblehead 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. Tepera, however, then struck out Castro to end the inning. Loup was pulled for Joe Smith to start the eighth and the right-hander opened the inning by fielding a Rob Refsnyder ground ball with his bare hand and then throwing him out at first.

Biagini retired 10 batters in a row until Castro led off the seventh with a bloop double to left.

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson (20) hits a solo home run against the New York Yankees during first inning MLB American League baseball action in Toronto, Friday, June 2, 2017.

But the Bringer of Rain seemed to rain on his own parade.

"Everything worked well for me today", Liriano said. I think guys have a hard time picking up especially his off-speed stuff. Darwin Barney started in left field on Saturday to get another right-handed batter in the lineup against NY lefty Jordan Montgomery. He now has 76 strikeouts and 16 walks in 68 1/3 innings this season, striking out at least seven batters in five of his last six starts. Holliday followed with a long RBI double to center.

Because if you're going to have a good day against the Yankees, you're going to have to get Judge out.

"It's unbelievable", Donaldson said of Smoak's season. Grilli declined. And you couldn't really blame him.
