Yankees’ Happ posts 14th victory of season, beats Blue Jays
J.A. Happ fanned eight and held the Blue Jays to two runs over 5 1/3 innings of work in the Yankees' 10-2 victory on Sunday. The outing was Happ's shortest since he joined the Yankees, as his former team forced him to throw 103 pitches over his 5 1/3 frames. However, he was able to limit the damage for the most part and has now run his record to a perfect 4-0 in four starts in pinstripes.
Orioles’ Yacabonis allows three runs in spot start vs. Red Sox
Jimmy Yacabonis wasn't at his best in a losing effort against the Red Sox on Saturday, giving up three runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings. On the plus side, he didn't walk a batter while striking out a pair in the ballgame. His trouble stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard on Saturday, as all of the damage against him came on home runs by Eduardo Nunez and Jackie Bradley Jr. in the fifth inning.
