Five things to know about Thursday's game...
1) Luis Cessa is making it hard for the Yankees to leave him off their 25-man roster when camp breaks after another solid start. He didn't allow a run and only two hits over four innings. While moving his ERA to 0.69 this spring, he collected three strikeouts as well.
2) As noted by the score, there wasn't much offense coming from the Yanks today. Only one player had a multi-hit game as Kyle Higashioka went 2-for-2 after coming in for Austin Romine.
3) Troy Tulowitzki heard some boos from Blue Jays fans, but he wasn't too fazed by them. He finished his day 1-for-2.
4) The Yankees did have chances to tally some runs, but they went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position. Miguel Andujar had the only RBI with a groundout in the top of the fourth.
5) Gleyber Torres was the lone run to come across for the Yankees, as he went 1-for-3.
