Luis Severino was solid as the Yankees hit three home runs en route to a 11-6 win over the Blue Jays. >> Box score
1) Severino was solid if unspectacular. He gave up two runs in five innings with eight strikeouts as he picked up his BLANK win.
2) Miguel Andujar went 3-4 with a double and home run, his 20th of the season, and three RBI.
3) Giancarlo Stanton hit his 31st home run of the season and Didi Gregorius knocked his 22nd.
4) The Blue Jays scored five runs in the 5th but the Yankees' early outburst proved to be more than enough.
Minus some sketchy relief work from Tommy Kahnle and A.J. Cole, the Yankees received an all-around fine effort today, ensuring a series win.
Severino wasn't completely dominant, but he was certainly better than a majority of his starts since July 1. For Severino, the next step back to being at the level he was pitching over his first 18 starts is to get back to being a bit more effective with his pitches so that he can get throw deeper into the game.
The offense, buoyed by four home runs, made certain the game was not going to get away from them. Andujar, Stanton and Gregorius (combined seven RBIs) have more than stepped up, doing their part of keeping the club's offense afloat with Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez still on the disabled list.
