The Yanks managed just two other hits and no other runs as the Blue Jays' hardly regaled pen - especially by comparison - did fantastically with Danny Barnes, Jon Axford, Tyler Clippard and Seung-hwan Oh teaming for four innings of goose eggs. Donaldson had reached on a double to left for his first hit, snapping an 0 for 7 start to the year.
New manager Aaron Boone said he will stick with Betances, who has allowed runs in both appearances this season after struggling last September. The Yankees have lost six of their past eight series in Toronto, splitting the other two.
Jose Altuve and the Astros are set to celebrate their first World Series title when they play their home opener against Baltimore. Donaldson did not look like his ferocious self in this four-game series and certainly was inferior to Smoak, who had homered in his previous at-bat against Tommy Kahnle to draw the Blue Jays within 4-3.
Walker made it 2-1 with a single to left field that easily scored Gregorius.
The Toronto slugger also hit a two-run homer in the seventh and had three of Toronto's 12 hits.
Outfielder Billy McKinney sprained his left shoulder when he crashed into the left field scoreboard while chasing Josh Donaldson's double in the first.
New York's Sonny Gray allowed one run on seven hits in four-plus innings but needed 89 pitches.
"I've thrown in hail before", said Montgomery, a SC native. Boone said Andujar will be used at third, first and DH. The question is whether the snow will melt in time for first pitch.
Boone said McKinney's recovery time would be "at least a few weeks". The Phillies used a big league-record 15 relievers in their first two games with their new skipper, plus six more in the third, and have allowed 27 runs during a 1-2 start. Outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury (strained right oblique) and Clint Frazier (concussion) are also on the DL. Tampa Bay is using a four-man rotation and plans to turn to its bullpen to get through a game every fifth day.
