TORONTO — Todd Frazier homered and had three RBI, Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius also went deep Wednesday night, and the New York Yankees overcame a shaky start by Masahiro Tanaka to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 11-5.

Rookie Garrett Cooper had four hits for the Yankees, who had not scored in double figures since a 13-4 win at Houston on June 30. New York’s 17 hits were one shy of its season high set June 10 against Baltimore.

Frazier, who entered in a 5-for-33 slide, went back-to-back with Sanchez in the second, hit a two-run double in the fifth, then added a leadoff single in the eighth for his first three-hit game since the Yankees acquired him from the Chicago White Sox. He was hit by a pitch in his final plate appearance.

Cooper wasn’t in the original starting lineup but replaced Clint Frazier, who felt tightness in his oblique during batting practice and is scheduled for an MRI on Thursday.

ANGELS 5, ORIOLES 1: After 10 seasons in the minors and playing in his first major league game, Cesar Puello singled in the go-ahead run and C.J. Cron added a two-run homer to lead Los Angeles at Anaheim, California.
