After last night’s awful extra innings loss, the Bombers bounced back this afternoon with an easy victory in Toronto. Now they’ll have the chance to win the series tomorrow. We’ll have a full recap up shortly. Here are the game highlights:

Winner(s) of the Game

Brett Gardner had a heck of a game. He put the Yankees on the board with an RBI double in the top of the second, then he hammered his 24th AND 25th home runs of the season. The veteran has far exceeded his previous career-high of 21 in 2017. It’s an understatement to say that Gardy LOVES the 2019 balls. He knocked in five runs, and also made a nice catch at the wall to rob Danny Jansen of a hit.

Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit also hit back-to-back bombs, and Mike Ford blasted a pinch-hit home run to extend their team HR lead over the Twins.

Honorable mention: James Paxton

Loser of the Game

Good thing it was already a blowout because Ryan Dull was not very good in the ninth inning.
