MLB: The Blue Jays beat the Yankees 6-0

TORONTO – Brandon Belt hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning on Thursday, leading the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees.

The Jays snapped a two-game losing streak and took another step toward a postseason playoff berth.

Toronto (88-71) ranks second among the three clubs that are on track to reach the playoffs without a division title in America.

Toronto is one game ahead of the Houston Astros (87-72), who were knocked out on Thursday, and two games ahead of the Seattle Mariners (86-73), who ousted the Texas Rangers in stunning fashion at the end of the ninth inning. To win 3-2 and survive.

Therefore, the Rangers (89-70) will have to be patient, as they are the ones who, if they had won, would have formalized their place in the series.

In the Jays’ victory, Dolton Varsho and Matt Chapman hit homers with singles in the third and fourth innings, respectively.

In the fifth, there were two outs on a Bo Bichette single. The latter stole the second pad, and then Cavan Biggio pushed him into the canvas one-on-one.

Pichet finished fourth for the first time this season. He also hit a single in the third inning.

Chris Bassett (16-8) struck out 12 batters in 7 2/3 innings, allowing four singles and a double.

He set a high in wins and reached 200 innings for the season.

“I think it’s a prestigious plateau in one season,” an emotional Bassett said. You need a lot of people to trust you. There is a lot of work going on in the shadows. It’s a milestone that has a lot of meaning to me. »

Bassett walked only once.

“He was pretty good,” rival manager Aaron Boone admitted. It was unpredictable. He has a large repertoire and his intentions are difficult to predict. What’s more, he was very accurate in this match. »

Luke Weaver (3-6) allowed two runs and six hits in four innings.

Oswaldo Cabrera scored twice for the Yankees, who had won three straight games.

The game was played in front of 36,657 people at Rogers Center.

Yusei Kikuchi (10-6) will start Friday for Toronto against the Tampa Bay Rays, who will reliever Aaron Civale (7-4).
