Frankie Montas flops as Yankees fall to Blue Jays

So much for momentum.

If the Yankees’ dramatic, extra-inning win over the Rays on Wednesday was a spark, another tough pitching performance from Frankie Montas promptly poured cold water on it Thursday.

Montas was tagged for six runs over six innings — including a five-run second inning — as the Yankees fell flat in a 9-2 loss to the Blue Jays in The Bronx.

The offense that had shown signs of snapping out of its recent funk 24 hours earlier wasn’t much help, either, as Jose Berrios kept the Yankees’ bats in check across 6 ²/₃ innings. The Yankees went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. The only real bright spot was rookie Oswaldo Cabrera collecting a pair of hits, including the first of his big-league career.
