Yankees set for first home game despite snow

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

Didi Gregorius added an RBI double and Neil Walker contributed a run-scoring single. Pillar is the first Blue Jays player to record three stolen bases in an inning. Jonathan Holder came on and immediately gave up a tiebreaking single to Luke Maile.

Tyler Clippard (1-0) worked an inning of relief for the win and Seung Hwan Oh pitched the ninth for his first save.

Drury connected off right-hander Marcus Stroman, who allowed four runs and three hits in five innings.

The Yankees and Rays might also have a hard time getting Tuesday's makeup game in as well.

In 2015, he went deep off Ivan Nova to become the first Blue Jays player to hit a grand slam in the Bronx - Toronto joined the majors in 1977.

Yankees rookie Billy McKinney slammed hard into the outfield scoreboard trying to make the catch and left the game with a shoulder sprain.

After going into rebuilding mode, the Yankees fell one win short of reaching the World Series previous year behind Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Luis Severino. The question is whether the snow will melt in time for first pitch. What do you expect in the debut of Giancarlo Stanton at Yankee Stadium?

Austin tied the game again in the seventh with his second homer, a solo shot to left. Walker made it 2-1 with a single to left field that easily scored Gregorius.

Notes: Donaldson (dead arm) was the designated hitter for a third straight game. He fielded ground balls before the game and said he feels close to returning to his usual position at third base.
