Yankees' Home Opener Postponed by Snow

Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances walks off the mound

After fouling off a pair of curveballs, Justin Smoak figured he'd get a fastball from David Robertson. "It was that loud, even in here you could still hear the fans", the right-hander said.

Devon Travis added an RBI single for the Blue Jays, who salvaged the split of the series by winning the last two games. Manager John Gibbons said he expects Donaldson to return to his position within "the next couple of days".

Robertson was left frustrated at his failure to finish off Smoak. "He just won today".

"The first home run he hit a pretty good pitch so tip your hat and move on", Estrada said.

Tyler Clippard worked an inning of relief for the win and Seung Hwan Oh pitched the ninth for his first save. Kahnle walked Josh Donaldson before the homer. It also left no open base to work carefully to Smoak.

Toronto's comeback denied NY its first series victory north of the border since August 2015.

The Yankees lost two players to injuries.

Betances allowed two runs and three hits in two innings. Stroman, limited to two starts in spring training because of a sore shoulder, walked three and struck out eight.

Pillar got a huge lead off third base and took off for home, but Betances threw the ball past the catcher to allow Pillar to score standing up. In the New York City area, LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports all reported some flight disruptions. Stanton walked and scored on Didi Gregorius' double.

Brandon Drury hit a two-run homer in New York's four-run third inning. The two-run shot was just the second hit allowed by Estrada and first since a first-inning double from Giancarlo Stanton. "They're not having two-seamer tail or something like that, hitting the ground and darting a different way".

Then a bullpen most consider to be the best in baseball gave it up. The question is whether the snow will melt in time for first pitch. Boone was believed to have one good option after another to summon from his pen to make any decision look ingenious.

Boone said McKinney's recovery time would be "at least a few weeks". Outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury (strained right oblique) and Clint Frazier (concussion) are also on the DL.

Toronto will close out its seven-game homestand with a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox starting Monday night.
