Blue Jays notebook: Toronto tops Yankees behind Estrada's seven shutout innings

Marco Estrada had been pitching too well recently not to win sooner or later.

Estrada (5-7) picked up his first win since a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on May 27 - a span of 12 starts.

Estrada dug in and got the big man with a strikeout to preserve his shutout through five innings. At the minor league level this season Cole has allowed just six hits in 12 2/3 innings pitched, posting a 0.00 ERA and a 0.63 WHIP.

"We didn't have a whole lot down there left", said Gibbons. “Hes one of the best at it that Ive seen.

"I was trying to put together a good at-bat", said Pillar. "So, I made the change".

Estrada, who allowed five hits and three walks, had only two clean innings but held the Yankees to 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position and stranded eight. It was his third consecutive seven-inning outing. By the time Estrada toed the rubber in Chicago on July 31, the trade deadline had passed. Of course, with MLBs waiver deadline of August 31 approaching, Estrada could be in further demand, especially if the Jays dont make up serious ground in the wild-card race by then.

“It is a little weight off your shoulders once you realize youre not going anywhere, ” Estrada acknowledged.

"They took advantage of some pitches I left over the plate", Tepesch said. I do know they all enjoy playing here, that's for sure. "I want to make sure everything is all right before I keep going".

Valdez has started three games for the Blue Jays this season and has struggled in the last two.

Father, Daughter Pulled From Water Off Park Point Deceased
A 38 year-old Wisconsin man and his year 10 year-old daughter drowned in the rough waters of Lake Superior on Thursday afternoon. According to the Saint Louis County Sheriff's Office, it wasn't long after that, that the swimmers could not be located.

Chad Green (2-0), who relieved Tanaka after he surrendered a leadoff homer to Jose Bautista and issued a walk to Josh Donaldson with none out in the fifth, earned the win for working 1⅓ innings.

After having to wait a week between starts, Sonny Gray wasn't as sharp as he was in Cleveland, but he was still effective, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits in six innings.

Toronto closer Roberto Osuna, who blew Sunday's game for the Jays by giving up four runs on five hits in 0.2 innings against the Astros, came in to face the top of the Yankees' order in the ninth, getting Brett Gardner to line out to short, pinch-hitter Jacoby Ellsbury to pop out to second, and rookie phenom Aaron Judge to pop up to first for the save, his 29th of the season. The seventh was a breeze, as Estrada nullified his final three batters and walked off the mound with a third consecutive seven-inning performance.

The sensational story of Judge has been a highlight of this season, but catching him in batting practice continues to be a treat.

Frazier was scheduled to start in right field and bat eighth.

In his next turn, Judge ripped one off the clock in deep left-centre, the equivalent of a fifth-deck rocket.

The game's key moment for Estrada and the Jays occurred in the fifth inning with the Blue Jays leading 3-0 and the Yankees threatening with their first two runners on board for the top three hitters in the NY batting order.

The win pushed the Yankees to 60-52 and made them 3-3 on their seven-game road trip.

"Clearly, I wasn't throwing enough strikes", Gray said.
