KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup.

Hill (1-0) allowed five hits and walked three, striking out five.

Said scheduled starter Jordan Montgomery, a native of SC: "I've thrown in hail before".

Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar was 3-for-4 Sunday and is the only Blue Jays player to hit in all four games this season. He played in New York's season opener against the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday, going 2-for-4 in the 6-1 win.

"I think it's big", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

But when Justin Smoak lined a single to left field, scoring Donaldson, McKinney threw the ball toward the infield and took himself out of the game. The Yankees play Sunday and Monday, but are off on Tuesday. Both homers reached the second deck, and both tied the score. Austin hit a two-run drive in the fifth and a solo shot in the seventh. Vince Velasquez faltered in a tough spot for Philadelphia after it used a combined 13 relievers in the first two games of the series.




At Petco Park, Japanese right-hander Kazuhisa Makita, who played for the Seibu Lions in Nippon Professional Baseball until last season, made his major league debut but the San Diego Padres lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6. After a one-out walk to Pillar, Aledmys Diaz hit a first-pitch fastball that ricocheted off his left ankle to Austin at first base.

About one to three inches of snow was forecast to fall Sunday night into Monday in NY, but it was to stop early in the morning and the high temperature was forecast to be in the mid-40s. McKinney was recalled from Triple-A Friday after Hicks went on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained right ribcage.

Trainer Steve Donohue also checked McKinney for concussion symptoms, and it was surprising he wasn't pulled immediately, especially after Frazier has encountered multiple setbacks after experiencing recurring symptoms following a similar wall collision during spring training. Josh Donaldson is aging and has one foot out the door; David Price in a Blue Jays uniform only exists online and in pictures, and Jose Bautista is adding everyone he can on twitter but not playing baseball.

The timing of McKinney's injury couldn't have been worse, as the Yankees are reeling from a spate of injuries that have suddenly attacked their outfield.

Yankees: RHP Sonny Gray is 4-3 with a 2.47 ERA in eight career starts against the Blue Jays.

Toronto starter Marcus Stroman was on a pitch count after being hampered by a right shoulder injury at spring training. The right-handed Gray struck out 153 hitters in 162 innings a year ago (27 starts) but finished the season 10-12 overall with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.
