The Blue Jays needed more innings on opening day to beat the Yankees, 3-2.
The Jays opened the scoring in the second set with a hit and an RBI from Lourdes Gurriel; Teoscar Hernandez came to cross the marble.
But the Yankees responded immediately with a Gary Sanchez two-run homerun to Hyun Jin Ryu in the bottom of the second. A strike that went through the wall in center-left field.
At the start of the sixth, Hernandez returned to the charge with a resounding homerun to the left against starter Gerrit Cole. The first circuit of the season for the Jays. A bomb that travels the distance of 437 feet. It was 2-2 then.
In the seventh, the Blue Jays got hot, Aaron Judge had his goals filled with just one out, but he struck in a double play.
Then, in the ninth, with runners on the ends and one out, Cavan Biggio at third basked an excellent ground play to pin the runner to home plate. The match therefore moved into overtime.
Early in the 10th inning, with a runner starting the second inning, Randal Grichuk hit a double on the opposite field to give the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead.
And at the end of the 10th, reliever Julian Merryweather withdrew his three opponents on 11 shots, including 10 catches (false balls).
The Blue Jays win, 3-2.
The two teams will face each other again on Saturday afternoon.
