(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) TORONTO -- Over his 16 years in the big leagues, Vladimir Gurrero hit 12 of his 449 career home runs against the Yankees. His son now has one. A big one.

The 20-year old Vladimir Guerrero Jr. crushed his seventh homer of the season -- and of his career -- in the eighth inning Wednesday night, a go-ahead three-run homer off Zack Britton. That sparked the comeback as the Blue Jays scored a 11-7 win over the Yankees at the Rogers Centre.

Vlad Jr., Cavan Biggio set to make MLB history Friday Though it hasn't all been smooth sailing for the Toronto Blue Jays this season, they have seen some optimistic signs of what's ahead. 

Vlad Jr . received Coors Field advice from dad. Blue Jays phenom homered in opener against Rockies. Edwin Jackson took the mound to start the second game of the three-game Interleague series against the Padres at Rogers Centre, and the 35-year-old right-hander struggled to keep the

The Public and Toronto Blue Jays Await Vladimir Guerrero Jr .'s Arrival. MLB’s overall top prospect, Vlad Guerrero, Jr ., is poised to be his own mandatory viewing, a perfect 10.0. When I saw him with the Yankees , I had more questions than answers, but when I saw him last September, he Teoscar Hernandez can do some things that light you up , and then at times, he's playing with his hair on fire


It was the third loss in a row for the Yankees (38-22) and clinched the three-game series for the Blue Jays (23-38). That snapped a streak of nine straight series wins for the Yankees and it was the first time that they had lost three straight since they were swept by the Astros in April.

It came in a striking fashion.

The Yankees’ highly touted bullpen, which has been so devastatingly efficient, basically imploded. The Yankees relievers allowed seven runs over two innings.

Britton was charged with those three earned runs, snapping a streak of 13.1 scoreless innings dating back to May 6. It also gave the reliever his first loss of the season.

Jonathan Holder was charged with two unearned runs and Luis Cessa gave up two solo home runs.

When will Vlad Jr . arrive? Sooner or later, the Blue Jays will call up Vladimir Guerrero Jr . John Gibbons' second tour as Blue Jays manager ended following last season and the team replaced The best match for Smoak might be the Yankees , who are hoping either Luke Voit or Greg Bird runs away

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo was equally awed. "To be 20 years old, and all the press, and hitting batting practice and everybody's here and stuff. Guerrero missed the start of the season after an oblique injury in spring training. He played four rehab games at Class-A Dunedin before moving up

The bullpen was trying to catch up all night. Adam Ottavino and Tommy Kahnle, two of the Yankees who came in with an ERA under 1.50 since the start of May, could not get through a full inning. Britton had also been carrying an ERA below 1.50 since May 1.

But that didn't matter Wednesday, because they were in a hole early.

The last time James Paxton took the mound here in his native country, he threw a no-hitter. The 30-year-old from British Columbia, who is nicknamed the “Big Maple,” threw the sixth no-hitter in Mariners’ history here at the Rogers Centre May 8, 2018.

Wednesday night was not as sharp.

Paxton gave up a two-run shot to Randal Grichuk in the first and an RBI single to Cavan Biggio in the second.

The Yankees had battled back to take the lead in the fifth, but Paxton couldn’t hold it. Guerrero singled in a run to tie the game in the bottom of the inning.

Paxton could not get through the fifth. He allowed four runs, three earned on four hits with four strikeouts in just 4.2 innings.

Who is the worst team in MLB?

Who is the worst team in MLB? As Major League Baseball teams pass the 1/3 mark of their seasons, it’s becoming clearer which teams are contenders and which teams are pretenders. Teams that will end the season with the worst records are also becoming more obvious. While the Seattle Mariners, San Francisco Giants, and Washington Nationals have had dismal seasons and rank among the bottom-tier of performers this season, there are five teams in worse shape. Here are the five worst teams in MLB in 2019: 5.

The Yankees Can Thank Luke Voit for Their Surprising Surge. Welcome to the latest installment of 3 Up , 3 Down as we take the temperature of what's going on across MLB. Our latest edition includes notes on Luke Voit’s stellar season and the Braves bullpen woes, but first, we’ll discuss Vladimir

the Yankees are on the hook for a hair under M through 2020.

That spoiled DJ LeMahieu’s most productive night as a Yankee, just as his role was about to change.

The Yankees utility infielder drove in a season high four RBI Wednesday night, twice in Bombers’ come-from-behind rallies.

In the fifth, LeMahieu hit an RBI single and in the sixth, he crushed a three-run homer, a line drive into left field that put the Yankees up 7-4. It was LeMahieu’s seventh homer of the season. giving him 40 RBI in 55 games this season.

The four RBI on Wednesday were one off his career high and the most he has had since Aug. 27, 2018 when he was with the Rockies. It also gave him 40 RBI in 55 games this season. He has hit safely in 10 straight games and has had an RBI in 10 of his last 14 games with five homers, 17 RBI in that span.

With his two hits Wednesday with runners in scoring position, LeMahieu is hitting 24-for-51, or .470. He went into Wednesday night’s game with the third highest batting average with RISP, behind Tampa’s Austin Meadows and Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera.

It was Gary Sanchez, however, who got the Yankees going in the fourth.

The catcher hit his 19th homer of the season -- one more than he totaled last season -- with two outs and the Bombers behind 3-0. He singled in another in the Yankees’ three-run rally in the fifth along with RBI singles by Cameron Maybin and LeMahieu, to take the 4-3 lead.

Galvis, Grichuk HR as Jays end 6-game skid, beat Yankees 4-3 Freddy Galvis hit a two-run home run, Randal Grichuk added a solo shot and the Toronto Blue Jays held off the New York Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night to end a season-worst six-game slide. BOX SCORE: BLUE JAYS 4, YANKEES 3 Toronto closer Ken Giles struck out Gleyber Torres with two on in the ninth to wrap his 11th save, and Eric Sogard had three hits as the Blue Jays won for the first time since beating San Diego on May 26. Toronto went winless on a six-game trip to Tampa Bay and Colorado. Clint Frazier and Aaron Hicks homered for the AL East-leading Yankees, who lost consecutive games for the first time in more than a month.

Blue Jays have two very important things to look forward to in 2019: The arrival of the game’s top prospect, Vladimir Guerrero Jr . and the fact that they’re While all eyes will be on Vlad Jr .

Vlad Jr . and the Blue Jays ' dilemma. Toronto must decide when time is right to promote top The team's bullpen , in particular, has been nails, thanks to a gaggle of 30-somethings -- from Both the Yankees and Red Sox are on 109-win paces; there's one AL Wild Card spot essentially locked up right there. The Blue Jays (and Mariners) are your only real bets for a competitive playoff race in the AL.

With shortstop Didi Gregorius expected to join the Yankees on Friday, Gleyber Torres will move back to being an everyday second baseman. LeMahieu will have to play in different positions every day.

But Aaron Boone was quick to point out that he will find a way to keep LeMahieu in the lineup every day.

“You figure Didi is initially playing two out of three, three out of four as we continue to build up. You can plug in the math from there. Gleyber plays a day at short, a day off every six or seven days for a guy, you start having the moving parts,” Boone explained. “Maybe we get (first baseman) Luke (Voit) a day and play DJ there at first. Bottom line is, they'll all get very regular at-bats, the way I see it working out.

“Gio will play a lot of third base. Pretty much all third. The occasional spot over at first,” Boone said. “But for the most part, he would be the guy playing third and then you move DJ and Gleyber around.”

Watch: Angels closer uses bizarre leg kick to mess with Vlad Guerrero Jr..
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has played less than 50 games in his MLB career, and opposing pitchers are already coming up with unique ways to try to get the young slugger out. With the Toronto Blue Jays trailing 3-1 in the ninth inning Tuesday night, Los Angeles Angels closer Hansel Robles needed one final out. In order to keep Guerrero from making it a one-run game with one swing, Robles broke out a ridiculous leg kick to disrupt the 20-year-old’s timing. Vlad did not seem enthused. Hansel Robles was messing with Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s timing with perhaps the longest delivery ever for a 100 mph fastball. Vladito wasn’t happy about it. pic.twitter.
