NEW YORK — Chad Green struck out 11 in six dominant innings, Aaron Judge delivered again with an RBI double and Dellin Betances escaped a big ninth-inning jam, leading the New York Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0 on Monday night.

Betances got major league RBI leader Edwin Encarnacion to ground into a game-ending, around-the-horn double play with runners at the corners.

The Yankees won for the fifth time in six games, taking the first 1-0 decision between the teams since 2005. They dropped Toronto percentage points out of first place in the AL East and pulled within 51/2 games of new division leader Baltimore.

Promoted earlier in the day from Triple-A for his fifth stint of the season with the Yankees, Green (2-2) was in complete control. He gave up two hits, walked none and outpitched R.A. Dickey (8-13).

Tyler Clippard, Adam Warren and Betances combined for scoreless relief. Betances held on for his fifth save as the Yankees stopped a five-game losing streak to Toronto.

Green retired the first 13 batters, with just one ball hit out of the infield. After Troy Tulowitzki singled and Darrell Ceciliani doubled with one out in the fifth, the 25-year-old rookie fanned his final hitters.

Green twice struck out reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson. The right-hander fanned him with his 104th and final pitch, a 96 mph heater, and Donaldson flung his bat toward the Toronto dugout.

Judge homered in his first two big league games over the weekend.

ROYALS 3, TIGERS 1: Ian Kennedy pitched effectively into the seventh inning to win for the first time since June 26 as Kansas City won at Detroit.

The Tigers lost slugger Miguel Cabrera after four innings to a strained left biceps. Cabrera appeared to injure himself in a first-inning collision with Cheslor Cuthbert at first base, but batted twice before leaving the game.

Detroit said Cabrera is day to day.

Kennedy (7-9) ended an eight-start winless streak, allowing one run on five hits and a walk in 62/3 innings.

RANGERS 5, ATHLETICS 2: Adrian Beltre hit a grand slam not long after Texas ended a 24-inning scoreless streak and Martin Perez pitched seven strong innings for his first win since late June, leading Texas to a win at home.

Beltre’s 100th home run at Globe Life Park, which went about a dozen rows above the 14-foot wall in left field, came against former teammate Ross Detwiler (1-1) in the fifth inning with Texas trailing 2-1.

The decisive homer, Beltre’s 10th career slam, came three batters after Shin-Soo Choo fractured his left forearm when he was hit by a pitch.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

MARLINS 6, REDS 3: Chris Johnson drove in two runs with a home run and a double, former reliever David Phelps pitched into the sixth inning in his third start of the season as Miami opened a four-game series at Cincinnati with a win.

Marcell Ozuna also homered and Dee Gordon beat Joey Votto’s high toss to pitcher Blake Wood covering first base for a bases-loaded, two-run infield single for Miami, which has won two straight games after a three-game losing streak. Both wins have come since Giancarlo Stanton was lost on Saturday for what is expected to be at least six weeks with a groin injury.

The Marlins went into Monday one-half game behind idle St. Louis for the National League’s second wild-card slot.

INTERLEAGUE

RAYS 8, PADRES 2: Drew Smyly allowed just a solo homer over seven innings of one-hit ball, Logan Forsythe and Kevin Kiermaier each homered as Tampa Bay won at St. Petersburg, Florida.

Alexei Ramirez hit his fifth homer and Derek Norris walked twice, and those were the only baserunners against Smyly (5-11). The left-hander struck out four during his fifth straight start with six or more innings and two or fewer runs.

Kiermaier had a three-run drive in a five-run eighth that made it 8-1. He had three hits and two stolen bases.
