The New York Yankees announced on Twitter on Monday morning that their home opener against the Tampa Bay Rays has been postponed due to snow.

Justin Smoak hit a grand slam in the eighth inning - his second home run of the day - to power the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-4 win over the New York Yankees on Sunday.

The Yankees, after scoring four runs in the third inning against Patchogue-Medford's Marcus Stroman, led the entire way, pulling into the seventh inning with a 4-1 lead.

Stroman allowed four earned runs over five innings.

Last season, the Yankees won 12 of 19 meetings with the Rays, including eight of 10 at home.
