Donaldson goes deep twice to supply offence as Blue Jays beat Yankees

A couple of more games like this one and the Yankees' concern will be who's behind them rather than in front of them. He was initially placed on the 10-day disabled list.

"The weird thing is it's not really showing up too much in the games, " said Clint Frazier, who has felt some discomfort the past few days in batting practice. Their team ERA since the all-star break (2.92) is lowest in the AL. It was the last hit Gray allowed, but it was enough for his second loss in two starts for the Yankees.

"We're definitely going through a rough moment right now", Sanchez said through an interpreter.

Sonny Gray, as he did in his Yankees debut, pitched relatively well but received little run support. Masahiro Tanaka gave up three runs, two earned, on two hits while walking five and striking out a pair over four innings of work.

In all, the Yankees were 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position and left 11 runners on base, seven of them in scoring position.

His offense gave him little support a week before, but that was understandable as Cy Young candidate Corey Kluber of the Indians carved up Yankees hitters.

Left-hander J.A. Happ picked up the win for the second straight start, limiting the Yankees to one run and four hits in 5.2 innings before being relieved by Domenic Leone in the sixth.

The Yankees spanked Toronto pitching for 17 hits, including three home runs early off Nick Tepesch, an emergency starter for the Jays with Aaron Sanchez still out with a blister issue and Joe Biagini being stretched out in Triple A Buffalo.

He did not factor in the decision Saturday against the Houston Astros when he allowed five hits, two walks and three runs while striking out seven in seven innings.

The RISP failures started early.

In Triple-A, Mitchell has pitched to a 3.93 ERA in 12 starts for the RailRiders this year, and has posted a 59 K/12 BB ratio. Yankees first baseman Garrett Cooper led off the inning with a single to left and Ronald Torreyes followed with a walk. Gray himself made an errant throw on a pickoff attempt, allowing Ezequiel Carrera, who had doubled with one out in the second, to advance to third. Goins hit a squibber to Gray, whose glove-flip to Sanchez wasn't in time to get the swift Carrera, who slid in head-first for a 1-0 lead. Bautista walked with one out and went to second when Russell Martin struck out on a curveball in the dirt that went for a wild pitch.

Josh Donaldson hit a two-out RBI single in the third and Kevin Pillar added a two-out RBI single in the fourth.

But Carrera made an excellent dive, extending a hand on the plate just ahead of the tag, and Toronto had a deserving 1-0 lead.

The Yankees' most frustrating inning might have been the fifth.
