Blue Jays silver linings after second loss to Bronx Bombers

Gift Ngoepe made his Jays regular-season debut as a defensive replacement and could get the start at shortstop on Saturday

The game was postponed due to weather and rescheduled for Tuesday.

"I didn't realize how bad it was until I started driving on the FDR and I was seeing everyone's cars and was like, 'Man, that's a lot of snow, '" Wade said. "We just go out and compete and have fun and whatever happens, happens". The White Sox have tabbed right-hander Miguel Gonzalez (0-0) to start on Monday against Jaime Garcia (0-0).

Smoak is hitting.467 so far this season with eight runs batted in over 15 at-bats.

Rookie Yankees manager Aaron Boone had chose to walk struggling Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson to load the bases to face Smoak, a move that failed dramatically.


Toronto has hit at least one home run in each of its first four games.

Devon Travis added an RBI single for the Blue Jays, who salvaged the split of the series by winning the last two games.

"You can't do any better than he did today", manager John Gibbons said.

With the Toronto Blue Jays struggling to score runs, Kevin Pillar found another way to create some offense. Pillar is batting.462 (6-for-13).


New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia throws against the Toronto Blue Jays during the first inning of a baseball game in Toronto on Saturday, March 31, 2018. The New York Mets home game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field was also postponed. It was Toronto's first straight steal of home since Aaron Hill did it against the Yankees in 2007 and it sent the crowd of 37,692 at Rogers Centre into a frenzy.

During Spring Training, he appeared in five games out of the bullpen.

"It was going to be quite an ordeal to have any kind of a chance", Boone said.

Renteria likes what he has seen so far. "Regardless of a 2-0 start, these guys are prepared and have a really good mindset".
