A recap of last night's New York Yankees/Toronto Game Two.

BUFFALO NY. - The Toronto Blue Jay's bullpen wasn't to blame this time.

Up 2-1 Jay's starting pitcher, Ross Stipling served up a pitch good enough for New York Yankee's pinch hitter, Gary Sanchez, to hit a two run homer over the left field fence on a three and one count at the top of the seventh inning last night.

The home run made it 3-2 for the Yankees.

New York eventually won the game by that score.

Up until the game winning home run, Stripling was actually pitching good.

Stipling went 6.2 innings, allowing three earned runs and struck out nine batters.

Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo said Stipling was on.

"He was great," said Montoyo at the postgame press conference.

Both Marcus Semien and Cavan Biggio hit home runs for the Jays.

Yankee's starting pitcher, Gerrit Cole, pitched eight good innings allowing just two earned runs.

Yankee's closer, Aroldis Chapman recorded his 14th save of the season.

Toronto is now 3-7 in their last 10 games.

Game Three is tonight.
