Scored the game.

Internet Baseball Scorecard | June 23rd: Yankees at Jays - Gm 1 |

Game Notes

Jays bat-around in the 2nd - Marcus Stroman has scintillating night - shuts down the Yankee order for 8 Innings on 114 pitches.

Despite losing Bautista and Lawrie this line-up is HOT ... for now. Cabrera remains Hot; Lind remains Hot. "Double E" has been Hot for a week; D Navarro is Hot right now. (Rasmus was hot in his first games back. Tonight: 0 for 4 with a walk.)

In this observers opinion, more good pitching is key to this order's long term success.

Toronto Blue Jays
Pitchers                  IP   H  R  ER  BB  SO  HR  PC-ST   ERA
Marcus Stroman (W, 4-2)   8.0  3  1  1   1   7   1   114-73  4.25

I like Gibbons' managing with the parts he has this year.

With Lawrie on the DL and Bautista out of the line-up indefinitely (for now) with a right hamstring issue, the Jays sent down Erik Kratz (C) and brought up Kevin Pillar (LF, RF, CF) and Anthony Gose (RF, CF, LF). Steve Tolleson (2B, 3B, RF, CF, SS, P) remains on the team's active roster off the bench.
