Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homers as Toronto defeats Yankees

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. put Toronto ahead in the first inning with his 11th home run in the Bronx and Brandon Belt drove in four runs to lead the Blue Jays to a 6-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday.

Yusei Kikuchi (3-0) allowed one run and four hits in six innings and has a 1.91 ERA in five starts and one relief appearance at Yankee Stadium. Erik Swanson, Trevor Richards and Yimi Garcia finished the game with five hits.

Wearing a light blue uniform, Toronto took the lead against Domingo Germán (1-2) when George Springer doubled on the game’s first pitch and two batters later Guerrero homered into the visitors’ bullpen to left-center field for his fourth home run this season. Guerrero is hitting .301 (37-for-123) in 32 games at Yankee Stadium.

“Since you are a little kid, you dream of playing at Yankee Stadium,” the 24-year-old son of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero said through a translator before the game. “Yankee Stadium is always a stadium you want to go to, you want to perform, you want to hit. That’s the mentality all the time when I come here.”
