The Toronto Blue Jays started their 2015 regular season campaign on the right foot, beating the New York Yankees 6-1.
Blue Jays pitcher, Drew Hutchison, threw six innings and allowed one run in his opening day debut. Hutchison is the first Jays pitcher to allow one or fewer runs in an opening day road start since Jim Clancy in 1984.
Edwin Encarnacion and Devon Travis both hit home runs in the win. Travis, a rookie, is the fourth player in Blue Jays history to hit a home run in his first career major league game.
20-year-old Miguel Castro and Aaron Loup pitched together for three scoreless innings of relief. Toronto went 3-7 last season at Yankee Stadium, and did not register a win in New York the season before.
R.A. Dickey is on the mound for the Blue Jays against fellow right-handed pitcher Michael Pineda in the team’s next game on Wednesday.
