Yankees home opener postponed by snow

Toronto Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar

Aaron Boone noted it has been just four games and that small samples are magnified this time of year because all that is available are small samples.

For now, though, it is making the new manager look bad.

Pillar is the first big league to steal three bases in an inning since San Diego's Wil Myers did it last August 16.

Smoak also hit a two-run home run in the seventh with nobody out off Tommy Kahnle.

Livestream the Toronto Blue Jays, including Blue Jays Central pre-game. Manager John Gibbons said he expects Donaldson to return to his position within "the next couple of days". But this is all supposed to be beside the point. Boone said Warren's condition was better than expected.

In fact, neither area of power that made leaving the broadcast booth for this job so attractive to Boone has yet really manifested. Tyler Austin homered twice for the Yankees. Didi Gregorius added an RBI double and Neil Walker contributed a run-scoring single.

Yankees right-hander Sonny Gray allowed one run and seven hits in four-plus innings. That began the domino fall to disaster. Drury then turned on an 0-2 pitch for his first homer of the season.

Kevin Pillar moved to third on the play and scored on a Travis single. One out later, NY chose to intentionally walk Josh Donaldson to load the bases for Smoak, who worked the count full before his shot to center field.

But again, what do you want to take from history? It also left no open base to work carefully to Smoak.

He got ahead in the count at 2-0, Robertson then evened the count but Smoak fouled off two breaking balls to stay alive before launching his second career grand slam and first hit in six career at-bats against Robertson. The question is whether the snow will melt in time for first pitch. "The second one I completely missed my spot". Robertson had yielded his first grand slam since 2010.

Pillar's daring play was Toronto's first straight steal of home since Aaron Hill did it against the Yankees in 2007 and it sent the crowd of 37,692 at Rogers Centre into a frenzy.
