Snowed out: Rays-Yankees series-opener postponed, rescheduled for Tuesday

NY split a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays to open the season, which included Giancarlo Stanton's first game in pinstripes.

Said scheduled starter Jordan Montgomery, a native of SC: "I've thrown in hail before".

Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar only stole 15 bases previous year for Toronto, but he raised his season total to three in one inning by stealing second, third and home in succession against the Yankees. And after the glee of opening the season and Boone's tenure 2-0, the Yanks return for their 116th home opener having penned a awful conclusion to their first series of the year.

It also surprised the Blue Jays manager.

Boone said, as a manager, he does not want to be a victim of recency bias and that a large pool of information will nearly always outweigh the small for him.

"I'm glad I was thinking the way I was thinking", Smoak said of his decision to look for the fastball.

Devastating air strikes and artillery fire have reduced large parts of Ghouta to ruins, forcing their residents to abandon them. The second agreement, with Faylaq al-Rahman, was announced on Friday and evacuations began the following evening.


The extended history screamed Boone should order Josh Donaldson walked to load the bases with two outs in the eighth and have David Robertson try to protect a one-run lead against Justin Smoak. Luke Maile had the other RBI. Tyler Clippard pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the win and Seung Hwan Oh pitched the ninth for the save.

Stroman allowed four earned runs over five innings. The game took three hours three minutes to play.

"You could hear it".

"He's one of the best in the game so you know it's going to be a tough at-bat", Smoak said of his nine-pitch encounter with Robertson. "It was awesome to watch". Instead, he presently has one good option - Chad Green, then a bunch of relievers so far socked black and blue.

Yankees: RHP Sonny Gray is 4-3 with a 2.47 ERA in eight career starts against the Blue Jays. Pillar started the inning by reaching on a single to right.

Yankees rookie Billy McKinney slammed hard into the outfield scoreboard trying to make the catch and left the game with a shoulder sprain.
