The Yankee offense started off the game with a bang and never let their foot off of the gas pedal while Luis Severino shut down the Blue Jays offense in an 8-5 Yankees win.

Turning Point

The Yankees needed to rebound early after a tough loss on Friday night to the Jays. Brett Gardner took matters into his own hands with a first-pitch leadoff home run off of Jays’ starter J.A. Happ. Aaron Judge followed Gardner with a home run of his own. The floodgates were just opening up as a Brandon Drury two-run double gave the Yankees an early 4-0 lead. This was more than enough run support for Severino.

Three Takeaways

—Aaron Judge continues to mash Blue Jays pitching. Judge’s solo home run was his eighth against the Blue Jays in his career, which is another impressive stat for the reigning A.L. Rookie of the Year.

—Luis Severino did not have his best stuff but was still good enough to get the win. Severino only went five innings and surrendered three runs but still gave the Yankees room to pick up the win.

—Dellin Betances is basically unhittable. Betances pitched a flawless eighth inning and struck out two Blue Jays. Betances has continued to give Aaron Boone reasons to put him in big spots.

Player of the Game

Brett Gardner had an incredible game. He had a leadoff home run and a triple along with three RBI to pace the Yankees offense in the 8-5 win.
