The Jays extend their win streak to five, tying a season high. The New York Yankees were leading by a run and ex-Jay had managed to strike out a string of Jays. He allowed two runs on 5 1/3 innings. But the Jays were able to flip the script on the home team.

The offense was already down a man, the new Jays star, Bo Bichette was out of the game due to concusion protocol. The Jays managed to claimed lead when Justin Smoak launched a two-run homer to make it his 22nd of the season. Jays offense was not the performance of a life-time, but it did the trick with 4 runs off 7 hits.

Jays pitcher Jacob Waguespack had a fairly decent night, however he allowed a forgivable solo shot from Yankee unstoppable, Aaron Judge. What we cannot forgive is the two-run homer smashed by Tyler Wade. All-in-all the Jays finally won a few games, unfortuently slightly late in the season. But they can keep this 4-3 win in their back pocket to brag about for a short while.
