Sev­erino gets 14th win, Yankees top Blue Jays

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS - FROM WIRE RE­PORTS

Yankees man­ager Aaron Boone would like to see Luis Sev­erino start the All Star game for the Amer­i­can League.

He just wants some­one else to take over in the sec­ond in­ning.

Sev­erino pitched five in­nings to earn his ma­jor league-lead­ing 14th win, Brett Gard­ner and Aaron Judge each hit solo home runs, and New York beat the Blue Jays 8-5 Sat­ur­day in Toronto.

Sev­erino (14-2) won his fifth straight start, al­low­ing three runs and five hits. Two of the hits off Sev­erino were home runs, mark­ing the first time this sea­son that he has al­lowed more than one homer in a game. Sev­erino has al­lowed three earned runs or less in 16 con­sec­u­tive starts.

“He’s been ev­ery­thing you want an ace to be,” Boone said.

The All-Star ros­ters will be an­nounced Sun­day, although start­ing pitch­ers for each league won’t be named un­til the day be­fore the game.

“I’d love to see him start, and go one in­ning,” Boone said.

Jonathan Holder, David Robertson, and Dellin Be­tances each worked one in­ning and Aroldis Chap­man got the first out of the ninth be­fore leav­ing with a sore left knee, the same in­jury that has both­ered him for sev­eral weeks.

“Just a lit­tle more dis­com­fort than what I usu­ally have been feel­ing,” Champ­man said through a trans­la­tor.

Cano apologizes for sus­pen­sion

Mariners sec­ond base­man Robin­son Cano apol­o­gized to his team­mates, the or­ga­ni­za­tion and the fans for his 80-game sus­pen­sion for vi­o­lat­ing base­ball’s drug agree­ment.

Cano tested pos­i­tive for Furosemide, a di­uretic that can be used to mask per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs.

Cano said it was pre­scribed to him in the Do­mini­can Repub­lic to ad­dress a med­i­cal is­sue.
