MLB: Chris Bassett mutes Yankees

Chris Bassett got off to a good start, Alejandro Kirk scored twice, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 3-1 on Monday.

Bassett (2-2) held the Yankees to one run and four safe balls in 6 1/3 innings on the mound. He gave up two free passes and fanned five hits.

“He finds solutions for everything,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone commented. Finds things quickly. He's very good at coming up with different throws, so it's hard to really get a feel for what he's going to do. »

Bassett, who used eight different pitches, limited the Yankees to one run and four safe balls in 6 1/3 innings on the mound. He gave up two free passes and fanned five hits.

“He made big pitches,” Blue Jays manager John Schneider said. That's kind of what he does. »

Yemi Garcia retired all three batters he faced in the ninth inning to record his second save of the season.

Both teams had four hits in the first game of this three-game series.

The Blue Jays scored two runs in the second inning, the first on a walk with the bases loaded and the second due to a bad pitch with three runners on the lanes.

The Yankees, who started the day with the best record in the major leagues, are now 12-5. The Blue Jays (9-8) have won five of their last seven games.

“They're a tough team to play against, but we had a game plan and we stuck to it,” Bassett said.

The Blue Jays put runners on first and third base in the first inning. Yankees starter Louis Gale (0-1) escaped hits by Justin Turner and Bo Bichette at first base.

The Yankees scored their only run of the second inning. A single by Oswaldo Cabrera led Gleyber Torres to the plate. This was the first point of the match.

Kirk's double in the third period allowed Bichette to score the final point of the game.
