The Blue Jays won two. The Yankees won two. And that’s the story of the four-game series in Toronto.
Along the way, the Yanks pitched well (I’m so impressed by the kid, Montgomery – he came from nowhere to be one of our most reliable starters) and not as well (Pineda had one of his off nights, and Tyler Clippard makes me cringe whenever Joe calls for him out of the pen). They also scored plenty of runs (Judge again, along with Holliday, Gardner, Hicks, Castro, Didi) and were handcuffed on offense (it was especially frustrating to lose 3-2 today).
Bottom line though, this team continues to hold its own and hang with the best. Toronto isn’t having a good season so far, but they’re always dangerous and we held them in check a lot of the time. Next up: the Red Sox. It’s funny how I don’t get that knot in the pit of my stomach anymore when I anticipate playing them. The old villains (minus Pedroia) are gone, and without them, the rivalry just isn’t the same.
