Tom Dakers | Bluebird Banter: The Blue Jays won their eighth game in a row and swept the Yankees to pull within half a game in the AL Wild Card race. José Berríos struck out eight over 6 2⁄3 innings, and Bo Bichette, Randall Grichuk, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. all homered.
Devan Fink | FanGraphs: Swinging at a major league pitch is a dicey proposition. Hitters actually produce negative run value when swinging at pitches, but what about when they take a pitch?
Austin Bechtold | Buc’s Dugout: Yoshi Tsutsugo has had a rough beginning of his major league career, but the beginning of his Pirates career couldn’t have gone better. The former NPB slugger has seven home runs through his first 22 games with Pittsburgh.
Tyler O’Neill’s home run was enough for the Cardinals to take Thursday’s contest and split a four-game series against the Dodgers.
