NEW YORK— David Price pitched three-hit ball for seven innings, Justin Smoak lined Toronto’s first grand slam in the Bronx and the Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 6-0 Saturday for their seventh straight win.
Newcomer Troy Tulowitzki also homered as Toronto closed within 2 1/2 games of the AL East leaders.
With two wins in a row, the Blue Jays became the first team to take a set against the Yankees since early July. On Sunday, Toronto will try to sweep them in a series of at least three games for the first time since May 2003.
A day after R.A. Dickey and the Blue Jays beat New York 2-1 in a 10-inning matchup between the highest-scoring teams in the majors, Price (11-4) dominated.
