GameThread for Game 8: Yankees @ Jays

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Our first series against the Yankees starts today.

Good news: Josh Donaldson is back at third base. With that, Chris Colabello is at first.

Aaron Sanchez gets his second start of the year. His first was very good, 7 innings,1 earned, no walks and 8 strikeouts. I guess it would be too much to ask to do that again?

It is also Masahiro Tanaka's second start of the season. He went 5.2 against the Astros, with just 2 earned, 4 hits, 1 homer,1 walk, 4 strikeouts.
