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

BUFFALO, NY. - In April, the Toronto Blue Jay's bullpen was something to rely on.

From mid-May to now, the bullpen has been really struggling.

Last night, the Blue Jays were up 5-2 and ended up losing the game 6-5 to the New York Yankees.

The bullpen again failed.

Despite all that, Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo, still has faith in his relievers.

"We're going to give them, (the relievers), a chance," said Montoyo at the postgame press conference.

The Jays were up 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning when Bo Bichette hit a two run single.

Bichette finished the night with three RBIs.

The Yankees, however, rallied back.

At the top of the seventh inning, D.J. LeMahieu scored on a wild pitch to tie the game 5-5.

LeMahieu went two for four at the plate last night.

Clint Frazier drove in the winning run at the top of the eighth inning.

Clint Frazier was last night's hero.

Yankee's starting pitcher, Jordan Montgomery allowed just four earned runs in 5.1 innings pitch.

Jay's staring pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu was just as good on the mound, despite the loss.

Ryu allowed just three earned runs in six innings pitched.

Game Two is tonight.
