NEW YORK -- Carlos Beltran and Nathan Eovaldi continued their recent hot streaks, while the Yankees' bullpen was stingy as usual on Tuesday night, as the Yanks beat the Blue Jays, 6-0, for their sixth straight win and pulled back to .500 for the first time since April 14.
Eovaldi shut down the Blue Jays' lineup for six-plus shutout frames, striking out five and at one point setting down 11 consecutive Toronto batters. The Jays only mustered two hits off him, the last of which led off the third inning. The Yankees' offense didn't do too much to back Eovaldi up, notching just three hits while he was in the game, but Beltran had two RBIs, one of which came on a fourth-inning home run, and New York broke it open with a pair of runs in both the seventh and eighth.
