The Yankees are putting the ball in the hands of lefty Jordan Montgomery (1-0, 4.70 ERA), who's got 12 strikeouts and six walks, as well as a 1.50 WHIP.

Gray had spoken positively about a few mechanical adjustments he'd made with pitching coach Larry Rothschild since his Fenway defeat, and he danced around a couple of early walks and survived the first two innings with a 2-0 lead.

Marcus Stroman will take the hill for the fourth time of the season, still hunting for his first victory.

Yuli Gurriel did pretty well in his first full season in the majors past year, hitting.299 with 18 homers and 75 RBIs. He's already allowed six dingers in his first four starts. Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton broke a 50 at-bat homerless slump with his fourth shot of the season, a drive that put NY ahead 4-2 in the third inning.

The reigning National League MVP got off to a hot start following an offseason trade from the Miami Marlins, hitting two home runs in his Yankees debut.

It was a bitter blow for Paul Lambert's Stoke , who remain second bottom of the Premier League . West Ham manager David Moyes looks to Marko Arnautovic : "The players look to him".

Behind a go-ahead single from Didi Gregorius in the fifth and a home run from Aaron Judge in the eighth, the Yankees topped the Blue Jays, 4-3, in the series opener at Yankee Stadium. The brother of Houston first baseman Yuli Gurriel hit a two-run single in the fourth that gave Toronto a 5-4 lead, then had an RBI single in the fifth that put the Blue Jays ahead to stay at 6-5. The bullpen has logged an outstanding ERA of just 2.15, along with a WHIP of 1.45 and a K-per-9 of 9.05. "We've got to be a part of getting him right and back on track, but this was tough tonight". Justin Smoak is 1 for 4 against Montgomery, while Josh Donaldson is 0 for 2, and Kevin Pillar is 1 for 3. Toronto has still won seven of its last nine and is 12-6 on the season and 5-3 on the road. The team has been unable to secure a shutout, placing them tied for dead last in the league.

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton broke a 50 at-bat homerless slump with his fourth shot of the season, a drive that put NY ahead 4-2 in the third. Morales hadn't played since suffering a right hamstring strain in Baltimore on April 9, but he returned with his second multi-hit game of the season, including a looping RBI double down the left-field line. NY is 6-2 in Montgomery's last 8 starts and 36-18 in their last 54 home games while the over is 9-1-1 in their last 11 games overall.

Aside from his great head of hair, the Cuban worldwide brings a lot to the table for the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays have been productive against left-handers this season, ranking third in the Majors with 106 runs scored, and they have scored at least five runs in four out of their last five games, so I am confident they can get to Montgomery. He has a 3.60 ERA in two starts with Romine catching him.

Stroman is off to a rough start to the season and both teams are swinging the bats well.
