Randal Grichuk scored two runs with a single to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon. 

 

The visiting Blue Jays (35-58) received two innings of work from Clayton Richard, who posted a single strikeout before being replaced by Nick Kingham in the third. No runs were scored until Grichuk’s single in the sixth inning. 

 

Aaron Judge helped make for an interesting ending as he singled in the bottom of the ninth to cut Toronto’s lead in half 2-1. Unfortunately, the Yankees (58-32) were unable to complete the comeback despite having the go-ahead run at the plate afterwards. 

 

New York turned to former Jays’ pitcher J.A. Happ (7-5) for the start, who pitched 5.1 innings and allowed two earned runs despite posting five strikeouts. 

 

Joe Biagini (3-1) earned the victory for Toronto despite 0.1 innings of work. The 29-year-old right-hander walked one batter and struck out none in the short outing. 

 

Toronto will be back in action on Sunday to decide the winner of the three game series with the Yankees. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. EST.
