The Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 2-1 on Wednesday

Jordan Romano stranded the bases loaded in the 9th inning, allowing Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s tiebreaking single to stand.

In the ninth, Giancarlo Stanton singled with one out off Romano and was replaced by pinch runner Tim Locastro, who advanced to second on Josh Donaldson’s hit. Isiah Kiner-Falefa grounded out after Aaron Hicks struck out and Joey Gallo walked to load the bases.

Romano has the most saves, with 12 in 13 attempts. In the three-game series, Toronto avoided being swept.

New York’s 11-game winning streak was its longest since a 13-game streak from August 14 to August 27, 2021.

Plate umpire Marty Foster ejected Yankees manager Aaron Boone for arguing balls and strikes during Aaron Judge’s at-bat in the eighth inning. Foster frustrated Judge by calling him out on a low strike in the sixth inning.

Before the Yankees manager exited the dugout, Boone and Foster exchanged heated words. Judge struck out swinging to end the inning.

Boone stated that he did not believe he had done anything during the argument that would warrant further disciplinary action from the league.

Judge finished 0 for 3 with a walk and three strikeouts, striking out three times for the second night in a row. For the second time in 14 games, he went hitless.

Yankees batters swung the bat 15 times against Kikuchi, the most in a single start this season.

Tim Mayza came on and retired the next two batters after David Phelps got one out in the 7th but left after issuing back-to-back walks. The eighth was worked by Yimi Garcia.

Gallo returned to the lineup after missing the previous three games due to a tight left groin, and he homered on Kikuchi’s first pitch in the third.

Gallo’s homer was his third of the season and New York’s 35th. Chapman opened the scoring in the second with left-hander Nestor Cortes.

New York lost for the second time in 17 games.
