The Toronto Blue Jays flexed their muscle Monday night at Yankee Stadium, silencing the Yankees offense in a 3-0 shutout to move to 3-1 on the year. The loss drops New York to .500 (2-2).
The Yankees could only muster four hits, all of them singles against Toronto starter Alek Manoah and four relievers. In fact, Manoah held the Yankees to just a single hit over six innings with four walks and seven strikeouts. Overall, the Yankees left eight men on base, and were a combined 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position.

Meanwhile, George Springer had a huge night for Toronto. Springer was 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBI. Springer’s two-run shot in the third inning gave Toronto a 2-0 lead. Springer would tally the final run of the night on a double to right-center in the seventh inning to score Santiago Espinal to make it a 3-0 ballgame.
That's one way to silence the boos from Yankees fans.— Tim and Friends (@timandfriends) April 11, 2022
