For the second time in as many starts Javier Vazquez was on point: one hit over seven innings with nine strikeouts. More important than the line itself is the fact that he kept the Yankees in a game in which they were being shut down by Brandon
League Morrow, helping the Bombers salvage their lost weekend in Toronto.
Vazquez is 3-2 with a 2.45 ERA in his past five starts and opposing hitters are
batting .171 against him over that time. He still has a ways to go to drag his stats out of the hole he dug for himself early in the season, but the Yankees appear to have finally gotten the starter they thought they were trading for over the winter.
