Yanks back on playoff track after 20-run outburst

NEW YORK —

Giancarlo Stanton and Gio Urshela returned from the injured list for the Yankees, who expect to get Aaron Judge back Wednesday or Thursday.

Stanton was 0-for-4 with a walk as the designated hitter, the only Yankees starter without a hit, after missing 32 games because of a strained left hamstring. Urshela had three hits and made several sparking defensive plays at third after missing 11 games with a right elbow bone spur.

Judge, limited to one game since Aug. 11 because of a strained right calf, could return Wednesday or Thursday.

But Gleyber Torres was out with a left quadriceps issue and New York manager Aaron Boone said James Paxton had not yet started to throw in his rehabilitation of a strained left flexor tendon, a sign the left-hander might not return this season.

Rookie Deivi Garcia allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.

New York scored its most runs since a 20-6 win at Atlanta on Aug. 30, 2015. The Yankees batted around in the second, third and fourth innings, the first time they achieved the feat in three consecutive frames since doing it from the fifth through eighth innings in a 22-9 rout of Oakland on Aug. 25, 2011, according to research by Elias Sports Bureau.

Toronto had won eight of its previous 12 games.

Ace Gerrit Cole starts for New York on Wednesday, seeking to join Justin Verlander, Roy Oswalt and Mark Mulder as the only pitchers since 2000 to reach 100 career wins in 203 or fewer appearances.
