BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Clint Frazier snapped an eighth-inning tie with a pinch-hit double and the New York Yankees hit three solo homers in a much-needed 6-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
Frazier hit a grounder inside the third-base line to score pinch-runner Tyler Wade from second as the Yankees completed a comeback from a 5-2 deficit and won for the third time in 10 games. The game was played before a crowd of 7,145, mostly in support of New York.
Chris Gittens homered for his first major league hit, Gary Sanchez had two hits, including a leadoff homer in the second inning, and Brett Gardner added a leadoff shot in the seventh that brought the Yankees to 5-4.
Bo Bichette homered and had a two-run single for the Blue Jays. Santiago Espinal added three hits for Toronto, which has lost four of six.
Jonathan Loaisiga (6-2) worked one inning to earn the win. Tim Mayza (1-1) allowed a leadoff single to Miguel Andujar in the eighth and took the loss. Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his 13th save.
Toronto starter Hyun Jin Ryu limited New York to five hits over six innings, but issued a season-high four walks.
