The good vibes just keep coming for the Yankees who have been winning with a simple formula: get good quality starting pitching, hit home runs, and close it down with one of the best bullpens in baseball.
That has been the formula the Yankees have been rolling with the past two-plus weeks, as New York has rolled to a 15-2 record in its past 17 games to improve to a Major League best 22-8 on the season.
The Yankees victory train continued on Wednesday, plowing past the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3. Gleyber Torres had a huge afternoon, crushing a three-run homer in the fourth inning to stake the Yankees to a 3-1 lead. Later he added a two-run double to push New York to a 5-2 advantage.

Torres, who continues to scuffle in the batting average department, hitting at .194 on the year, has nine RBI in nine games this month.
Meanwhile Jameson Tallion joined the list of Yankees hurlers to toss a quality start. In 5.1 innings, Tallion scattered six hits and two runs, while walking one and striking out four. He is now 3-1 on the season.
Aroldis Chapman did get into some trouble in the ninth, surrendering a run, and finding himself in a spot with the tying run at the plate and one out, but found a way to strikeout Bo Bichette, and jam Vladimir Guerrero Jr. into a ground out to end the ball game.
The Yankees open up a four games series with the Chicago White Sox Thursday night.
