Solarte homers, Pillar steals home, Toronto tops Yankees 5-3

Solarte homers, Pillar steals home, Toronto tops Yankees 5-3

Baseball, a game that is often all about cold beer and hot dogs on a warm day, didn't feel quite so seasonal in NY on Monday as the Yankees spring opener was postponed. due to snow.

The Rays are coming off a series versus the Red Sox.

Gerrit Cole won his Astros debut by striking out 11 while yielding just two hits over seven innings of an 8-2 pounding of the Rangers. Although they haven't been as stellar as the Yankees' starters, they've given the team a chance to win the games by keeping the Bronx Bombers within reach.

Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker gave up three runs and four hits in 52⁄3 innings. The Yankees have lost six of their past eight series in Toronto, splitting the other two. In the New York City area, LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports all reported some flight disruptions.

The left-hander is 1-1 with a 4.73 ERA in three starts vs. Tampa Bay, all at Yankee Stadium. Smoak had already delivered a two-run shot when he belted his second career grand slam in the eighth inning to wipe out New York's 4-3 lead.

"We liked him better against Smoak and I think he felt better with the Smoak matchup", Boone said.

Toronto has hit at least one home run in each of its first four games.

Aaron Boone said Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash called him Monday to give him the update.

The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday at 4:05 p.m. Monday's game had been set to begin at 1:05 p.m.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are 20-6 in their last 26 home games and 21-7 in their last 28 Monday games.

NY now sits half a game behind the rival Boston Red Sox (3-1), for first in the AL East, but there are 158 games to go in what should be a whacky season in The Bronx.

Yankees fans looking forward to Monday's home opener will have to wait a little bit longer thanks to a springtime snowstorm. The sketchy weather this week will add a layer of statistical unpredictability here, and we could see games on the lower-scoring side.
