Todd Frazier ignites Yankees offense to 11-5 win over Blue Jays

  Todd Frazier ignites Yankees offense to 11-5 win over Blue Jays TORONTO -- Todd Frazier had mostly struggled since joining the Yankees -- until Wednesday night. Frazier had three hits -- including a homer -- scored four runs and drove in three more, leading the Bombers to a 11-5 victory over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. The 31-year-old third baseman came in hitting .207 (12-for-58) since being traded to the Big Apple. Gary Sanchez (18th) and Frazier (third as a Yankee, 19th overall) connected for back-to-back homers leading off the second inning. The Toms River, N.J. native added a huge two-out, two-run double in the fifth to give the Yankees a 5-2 lead. Didi Gregorius (three hits) added his 18th homer in the third. Ronald Torres posted two hits and two RBIs. Jacoby Ellsbury contributed a double and two RBIs. The ever-inconsistent Masahiro Tanaka was all over the place, walking a career-high five and failing to complete five innings. His final line: 4+ IP, 2 H, 3 R (2 ER), 5 BB, 2 K, 1 HR. Tanaka has given up 28 homers this season -- including one to Jose Bautista leading off the fifth. Yankees starters have produced five or fewer innings in 13 of the team's last 24 games. Five relievers would be needed to wrap things up. Sanchez committed his 11th error of the season on a catcher's interference leading off the third. The batter, Raffy Lopez, ultimately came around to score. Clint Frazier -- in a 5-for-33 slump -- was a late scratch to the lineup due to oblique tightness.
