The Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees 11-4 and improved to 8-1 on the spring training so far. The Toronto Blue Jays were firing on all cylinders again on Thursday against a split New York Yankees squad. Toronto scored in double digits for their eighth win against only one loss this spring. Even with Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, a combined 0-for-2 for the entire pre-season, with only one game played between them, the Jays are averaging 6.1 runs per game to this point.
Jose Bautista was hit by an errant fastball once and went 0 for 2 in his debut. Jose is in the midst of a contract negotiation with the ownership. Bautista is trying to let his bat do the talking, during negotiations.
In the final four innings, the Jays had six extra base hits. The Blue Jays have played very well in the spring so far and were able to get to the Yankees big three strong relief arms. Miller, Betances, and Chapman pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on four hits with two walks while hitting two batters and striking out four.
