Jays help Bosox by blanking Yankees - MLB Summaries / Weekend Schedule

TORONTO (AP) — The New York Yankees will be 4½ games behind the Boston Red Sox when the two AL East contenders begin a three-game series Friday night in the Bronx.

The Yanks dropped another half-game back with a 4-0 loss at Toronto. Marco Estrada worked the first seven innings before two relievers completed the six-hit shutout.

The Blue Jays won with just five hits as Josh Donaldson and Kevin Pillar provided RBI singles before Jose Bautista's solo homer capped the scoring.

Losing pitcher Sonny Gray was reached for two earned runs and four hits over six innings to fall to 0-2 in two starts since joining the Yankees from Oakland. However, he owns a 3.00 ERA in those two games.

The Jays took two of three in the series, leaving New York seven games over .500.

Elsewhere in the majors:

— The Rays pulled out a 4-1 win over Cleveland on Corey Dickerson's three-run homer in the eighth. The Indians collected just four hits and were shut out following an RBI single by Jose Ramirez in the top of the first. The Indians have dropped four of their last five to cut their lead in the AL Central to 3 ½ games over Minnesota.

— The Twins vaulted over Kansas City in the AL Central standings by earning their fifth consecutive win, 7-2 at Milwaukee. Byron Buxton and Joe Mauer had three hits apiece and combined for three RBIs to help Minnesota complete a sweep of the home-and-home, four-game set with the Brewers. Zach Davies was tagged for seven runs and a career-high 11 hits over 5 2/3 innings as the Brewers dropped their fifth in a row to fall two games behind the NL Central-leading Cubs.

— The Cardinals completed a four-game season sweep of the Royals to pull within one game of the NL Central-leading Cubs. Dexter Fowler crushed a grand slam in the seventh inning to send St. Louis past Kansas City, 8-5. Fowler also supplied an RBI double that sparked a game-tying, three-run sixth in the Redbirds' sixth consecutive win.

— The Pirates are within three games of first place in the NL Central after Josh Bell slammed a two-run homer in the third inning and had three RBIs in a 7-5 victory over Detroit. Sean Rodriguez added a solo shot and an RBI single, while Adam Frazier was 3-for-5 with a two-run double. Gerrit Cole worked eight innings in his 10th win of the season, allowing three runs and six hits with seven strikeouts.

— Brian Goodwin's solo homer in the eighth inning pushed the Nationals past the Marlins, 3-2. Washington trailed 2-0 in the sixth until Goodwin hit an RBI single and scored on Bryce Harper's double. Giancarlo Stanton blasted his major league-leading 39th home run for the Marlins, who allowed the Nats to take a 15-game lead in the NL East.

— The Dodgers' lead in the NL West is up to 16 games over Colorado after Los Angeles outscored the Diamondbacks, 8-6. Enrique Hernandez put L.A. ahead for good with a three-run double in the top of the first. Chris Taylor homered and Justin Turner doubled home a pair to back Yu Darvish, struck out 10 over five innings and improved to 2-0 since joining the Dodgers.

— Yoan Moncada delivered the tying and winning hits as the White Sox rallied past the Astros, 3-2. Moncada extended the game with a ninth-inning homer and ended it with an RBI single. The Astros wasted Jake Marisnick's home run and lost for the ninth time in 12 games, leaving them with a 13-game lead in the AL West.

— The Angels blew a 3-0 lead in the eighth before Mike Trout's three-run double in the ninth lifted Los Angeles past the Mariners, 6-3. Jean Segura and Nelson Cruz homered against Bud Norris after Tyler Skaggs pitched shutout ball over 6 1/3 innings. The outcome puts the Mariners and Rays in a tie for the second AL wild-card berth, one game ahead of the Halos.

— Trey Mancini slammed two of the Orioles' four home runs in a 7-2 win at Oakland. Adam Jones chipped in with a solo shot and a two-run double, while Mark Trumbo added a solo blast. Wade Miley was terrific over seven innings, yielding only an unearned run and three hits with seven strikeouts.

— Homers by Wilmer Flores, Michael Conforto, Curtis Granderson and Neil Walker highlighted the Mets' 10-0 laugher against the Phillies. Flores and Conforto each hit three-run shots to back Jacob deGrom, who is 13-5 after limiting the Phils to four hits while striking out nine over 6 2/3s. DeGrom left the game with a contusion on his right triceps after getting hit by a line drive.

— Padres reliever Brad Hand had tossed 24 consecutive scoreless innings until Scooter Gennett tagged him for a grand slam in the seventh to lead the Reds' 10-3 rout of San Diego. Gennett erased a 3-2 deficit before Eugenio Suarez went deep two pitches later. Zack Cozart and Joey Votto added homers in the eighth, with Votto's solo shot extending his hitting streak to a season-high 15 games.
