WATCH: Yankees' Luke Voit takes MLB homer lead with 426-bomb off Blue Jays' Taijuan Walker

Voit got one from Toronto Blue Jays starter Taijuan Walker in the second inning Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium, and the 85-mph cutter was whacked into the eighth row of the bleachers for a 426-foot, three-run homer.

The Blue Jays took a 1-0 lead in the second when Vladimir Guerrero Jr., homered off rookie Deivi Garcia before the Yanks countered with seven in the bottom of the inning, six of them unearned runs due to a dropped flyball by right fielder Derek Fisher.

The Yankees swept a four game series vs. Baltimore from Thursday to Sunday and had their last scheduled off day on Monday.

WHAT A RELIEF: Yankees relievers combined to toss four scoreless innings (1 hit, 1 BB, 5 K) on Sunday.

... After allowing 10 runs n the sixth inning on Sept .7, Yankees relievers have posted a 16-inning scoreless streak (4 hits, 4 BB, 18 K).

... RHP Jonathan Holder is 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA over his last eight games since Aug. 20 (10 IP, 6 hits, 2 runs, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K, 1 HR).
