No more than 7 images from any single MLB game workout activity or event may be used while that game activity or event is in progress

Home runs have been coming in bunches for the New York Yankees in recent games, and they got a bunch more Saturday.

This was the fourth time the Yankees have hit four homers in an inning - they last did it October 1, 2012, against Boston.

"It would be nice to continue playing well right now", manager John Gibbons said.

Biagini threw 41 fastballs, 40 curves, along with a smattering of cutters and changeups just to keep them in hitters' minds.

"You look at his numbers, they're the best numbers on the team, so we just felt it was time to move him again", Joe Girardi said. Lead off batter Brett Gardner smacked a shot to the gap between left and centre and while left-fielder Ezequiel Carrera ran it down, the ball clunked off his glove.

Gardner found himself at third base on the error. He also struck out five. They sort of threatened a few times, back-to-back one out walks in the 2nd inning; back-to-back singles leading off the 3rd; two on with two out in the 5th.

Matt Holliday hit an RBI double in the fourth off Marcus Stroman and a run-scoring double-play grounder in the sixth. Luke Maile and Kevin Pillar singled to open the bottom of the third, but Jordan Montgomery was able to elicit a Josh Donaldson popup and two swinging strikeouts to get out of trouble. Clearly, Judge is wasting no time in preparing a case for his third straight Rookie of the Month honor.

In eight at-bats against Grilli this season, they have five home runs and a double.

And when Starlin Castro followed suit with a two-run bomb off Danny Barnes, the new Toronto pitcher, the Blue Jays' lead was down to 5-4.

Severino and Stroman were both flawless through their first three innings.

Despite shooting an underwhelming two-over on the front, Watson responded with a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie sequence on hole Nos. Defending champion William McGirt followed rounds of 71 and 72 with a 70 which leaves him on three under, 10 shots off the pace.

Figure out what 'covfefe' means
That follow-up appeared at 06:09 (10:00 GMT) on Wednesday, more than six hours after the original message (posted at 00:06). I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant ".

Jorge Sampaoli seems set to swap Sevilla for Argentina
But after being linked with the Argentina post, it appears to have been a position the Santa Fe born coach could not turn down. Argentina will now hope to have Sampaoli in place before the upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Singapore in June.

Blue Jays: RHP Joe Biagini (1-3, 3.64) pitched a career-high six innings in his previous start, May 28 against Texas. Not a bad performance for a pitcher who had been away for 20 games. It was the 11th multihomer game of his career.

Donaldson restored some of the cushion with his second homer, off reliever Jonathan Holder in the bottom of the sixth.

Tyler Clippard and Dellin Betances worked clean eighth and ninth innings, and the Yankees guaranteed at least a split in this four-game set. But on this day, Jay Stenhouse, the Jays VP of baseball media, approached the big right-hander and asked if he would speak to the media. Tepera, however, then struck out Castro to end the inning. Stroman was good in his start, going 6IP, allowing 5H, 2ER, 1BB, 4SO, but a 26 pitch 4th inning drove his pitch count high enough to pull him from going any further in the game.

Biagini retired 10 batters in a row until Castro led off the seventh with a bloop double to left.

Josh Donaldson hit two solo home runs, Justin Smoak added a two-run blast and a sacrifice fly and the Toronto Blue Jays held on to beat the New York Yankees 7-5 on Friday night.

But the Bringer of Rain seemed to rain on his own parade.

"There are a couple of things that I need to make adjustments on, like my cutter on the hit with Judge", Biagini said.

X-rays were negative. "I thought I broke sit", Travis said. "I'm hoping I wake up feeling good". The ball left his bat at 100 m.p.h. and travelled 384 feet to right centre-field to the delight of the sellout crowd of 46,782 with the Rogers Centre roof closed. Last season he slugged 24 home-runs for Toronto.

"It's unbelievable", marvelled Donaldson of Smoak's dinger production, now at 14, matching his HR output from all of 2016. Grilli declined. And you couldn't really blame him.
