Devon Travis followed with an RBI single as the Blue Jays opened the scoring for the second straight game. The Blue Jays stole four times in the eighth against him. It 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.

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. Luke Maile had the other RBI.

Tyler Clippard (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning and Seung Hwan Oh finished for his first save. Marco Estrada started for the Blue Jays, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two over seven innings.

Another detained suspect - a guard from a private security firm - will be charged shortly, Russia's Investigative Committee says . That official said that the initial suspicion is that a child had a cigarette lighter, which burned the foam rubber in the room.

In 107 career minor league games, 94 starts, he has a 27-30 record and a 3.57 ERA and 402 strikeouts over 532 2.3 innings.

All three stolen bases came off of Yankees relief pitcher Dellin Betances, who also gave up the game winning home run to Blue Jays third baseman Yangervis Solarte earlier in the inning to put the Blue Jays up 4-3 at the time.

Outfielder Billy McKinney sprained his left shoulder when he crashed into the left field scoreboard while chasing Josh Donaldson's double in the first. What do you expect in the debut of Giancarlo Stanton at Yankee Stadium? An hour after the game ended, Donaldson played catch on the outfield turf, making throws from right-center to the left field foul line, before fielding grounders and making throws to first base. Walker made it 2-1 with a single to left field that easily scored Gregorius.
