LHP CC Sabathia (5-2, 4.42) starts for NY.

Brett Gardner, Matt Holliday, Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius all hit solo home runs in the eighth inning, leading Jordan Montgomery and the New York Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 7-0 on Saturday.

A Red Sox 5, Orioles 2: David Price took a three-hitter into the eighth, Hanley Ramirez homered and drove in three runs, and Boston defeated visiting Baltimore. He also walked three batters and struck out one.

"He was great, against a good hitting team", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. But I felt like I just tried to keep attacking and stay in the strike zone and stay in front of them.

Liriano, who made one minor league rehab start at Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, said he was pain-free and didn't feel any fatigue in his 81-pitch outing against the AL East leaders.

When asked about his two homers against the Yanks, Donaldson said that he's "not quite where I want to be".

After Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge both made outs, Matt Holliday hit the first of back-to-back-to-back home runs for NY. Pineda was pulled in the sixth for RHP Jonathan Holder.

Matt Wieters, C, Washington Nationals - 1-5 with a double (9), a run scored, an RBI and 2 K's in a 13-3 win over Oakland.

The Yankees tied the franchise record with four homers in an inning.

After throwing 105 pitches over six innings, he was replaced in the seventh by left-handed reliever Aaron Loup.

The W actually went to reliever Joe Smith (2-0). "But he's a guy that, you can just tell, it's a look in his face that, 'I'm thinking with you and I've got you and I'm on it.' It's really a luxury to have somebody like that". Aaron Judge followed with a double of his own, plating Hicks for a 2-0 lead. Toronto's Devon Travis replied with a sacrifice fly off Adam Warren in the bottom half. The rookie left-hander went six innings, allowing just three hits while walking three and striking out five. The Beaufort alum is 1-0 with a 5.63 ERA and 6 K's in 8 innings.

"It wasn't a no-doubter, but he hit it good", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

NY has lost seven times in Pineda's past nine starts against Toronto, including five straight.

Biagini was really, really good against a tough lineup. I think guys have a hard time picking up especially his off-speed stuff.

Hamilton: Ferrari is favouring Vettel
Only Michael Schumacher has more than the Briton's five wins in Montreal and Hamilton is eager to add to his tally. They corrected things and it was worse so then we went back to this unknown scenario.

"It was an important series for us", Donaldson said.

"Seeing Smoak and how he's progressed this season from the first season we got him, to past year to now, it's very satisfying to see". He is 2-0 with a 1.88 ERA in five starts since.

Thanks to a crowd of 44,058, Toronto became the first AL team to draw at least one million fans this season (1,014,651).

Last season there was one thing very effective for the Toronto Blue Jays.

The event happened with minimal fanfare and publicity, but when Kevin Pillar walked on to the Rogers Centre field to catch the ceremonial first pitch on Thursday, it was a notable statement by the Jays centre fielder.

"I got him to ground out (Saturday) on a good one, located", Clippard said.

The Blue Jays (27-29) couldn't solve NY starter Jordan Montgomery (3-4) all afternoon. They first did it in 1977 at Toronto against the expansion Blue Jays, with Cliff Johnson connecting twice and Lou Piniella and Thurman Munson once each. If he can get all three secondary pitches working, add them to his strong fastball and throw any pitch in any count as has been his wont, Biagini's ceiling as a starting pitcher will only continue to rise. Toronto optioned RHP Leonel Campos to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for Liriano.
