The New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 20-6 to return to second place in the MLB’s American League (AL) East.
After a bad form of threat threatened to knock the Yankees out of the playoffs, the Yankees returned better after six consecutive victories.
The Yankees on Tuesday ousted AL East Blue Jays opponents thanks to DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit, who became the first players at the top of the New York strike line to have five RBIs in the same game.
Voit took home twice to improve his entire MLB to 18 and LeMahieu hit four to go with his five RBIs to New York, where the Yankees used a seven-run second-inning to see the Blue Jays .

Christian Yelich, meanwhile, returned home with a three-pointer to give the Milwaukee Brewers St Louis Cardinals 18-3 lead.
In the early 1-0, Yelich and Ryan Braun hit back-to-back solo homes to beat the Brewers in Milwaukee.
