THE BRONX — Randal Grichuk led off the 10th with an RBI double, and the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage of the second year of starting extra innings with a runner on second to beat the New York Yankees 3-2 in the major league opener.

Fans returned to Yankee Stadium for the first time since 2019 after the pandemic-shortened season.

Toronto reliever Jordan Romano escaped trouble in the ninth with the help of third baseman Cavan Biggio, who threw out pinch-runner Michael Tauchman trying to score from third on a grounder by AL batting champion DJ LeMahieu.
