Smoak, who tied a career high with six runs-batted in, had three of Toronto's 12 hits.

"We're pleased, for sure", he said.

The Yankee had built a 4-1 lead that Smoak cut to one with a two-run homer in the seventh.


The Yankees' first homestand has them scheduled to play three week-day games against the Rays, then host the Baltimore Orioles for three this coming weekend.

The postponement also delays Boone's first exposure to the home crowd, not necessarily a bad thing. The Braves needed help at the position as they have put Tyler Flowers on the 10-day disabled list because of an abdominal injury and Kurt Suzuki has a bruised right hand. Manager John Gibbons said he expects Donaldson to return to his position within "the next couple of days". Warren left Saturday's game after he was struck by a comebacker. It's the first time the Blue Jays have done that since 2011, when they homered in five straight to begin the season. In the New York City area, LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports all reported some flight disruptions.

Blue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman was limited to two starts in spring training because of a sore shoulder.


After going into rebuilding mode, the Yankees fell one win short of reaching the World Series previous year behind Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Luis Severino.

The Blue Jays are.500 for the first time since the end of the 2016 season.

In eight starts with the White Sox in 2017, he was 3-3 with a 4.72 ERA.


A thick layer of snow forced the New York Yankees to postpone their home opener against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, the Major League Baseball giants announced.
