George Springer and Alek Manoah lose the Yankees to the Blue Jays

That didn’t last long.

After back-to-back wins to open the season against the Red Sox, the Yankees lost a second straight game, this time 3-0 to the Blue Jays.

And on a night the Yankees could barely buy a hit, it was Aaron Judge who ended up hearing boos as he huffed for the second from the eighth inning.

Unlike Sunday’s loss to Boston, when the Yankees squandered numerous chances, they showed little offense as they were finished off by Alek Manoah’s pitching and George Springer’s bat.

It was the Blue Jays’ fifth straight win in the Bronx.

Manoah – who pitched six scoreless innings at the ballpark in his MLB debut last May 27 – was just as impressive on Monday night.

He allowed just one hit in six shutout frames and while Jameson Taillon impressed in his first start of the season, Springer finished him off.

The former Astro – booed throughout the game, ran the game with a line drive single to the left.

Taillon was ahead of almost every batsman in the early stages, going straight out seven times to lead the game after a Springer’s single to the left.

Santiago Espinal scored a singles with an out in the third game before Springer reappeared and this time sent a laser into the left field seats to give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead.

Manoah walked two-loaded bases at the end of the inning before Giancarlo Stanton showed up and landed one in the hole behind the shortstop, but Bo Bichette made a great backhand play and a strong throw to get Stanton first.

Taillon tossed around a Teoscar Hernandez leadoff double in the fourth.

Manoah struggled with his command, but the Yankees couldn’t get much hard contact with the right-hander.

In six innings, the Yankees had just one hit, a second inning single to center by Joey Gallo.

Toronto added a run from Michael King in the seventh to the right center fence with a two-off single from Espinal and an RBI double from Springer for Springer’s third RBI of the night.

Manoah walked after six innings and 89 pitches and Gleyber Torres greeted right-hander Trevor Richards with a single to the left. Aaron Hicks followed up with a walk for the Yankees’ first threat of the game.

Kyle Higashioka hit a flare to the right where Hernandez made a nice sliding catch for the first out.

Josh Donaldson pinched for Marwin Gonzalez and met Adam Cimber.

Donaldson hit a hard grounder down the middle, but second baseman Espinal moved to base, made a great grab to the left, turned and made a perfect throw to Bichette, whose strong throw first completed the double play at the end of the inning.

Gallo led with a single from the bottom of ninth, but Torres followed with a hard-hit double, ending any hope of a comeback.

It continued Toronto’s championship over the Yankees at the stadium, where they beat a four-game streak in September and won eight of the 10 inter-team games in the Bronx last year.
