New York Yankees’ win streak rises to 10 as unsung heroes step up

TORONTO — As an early-season bonding moment, a 10-game winning streak beats a spring training billiards tournament by a mile.

With each victory, these Yankees – a 7-6 team less than two weeks ago – are learning more about trusting one another in tense situations.

“Close games are the ones that sometimes can get away from you,’’ said Jordan Montgomery, and Monday night’s close-and-late affair at Rogers Centre might have easily slipped from their grip.

Instead, the Yankees hung tough and found a route past the Toronto Blue Jays.

“It’s impressive – guys one-through-26 are contributing to that. It’s different guys every night,’’ said Chad Green, who saved Monday night’s 3-2 win.

Like the man said, it’s unsung players and unanticipated performances that have helped extend the Yankees’ victory march to 10 straight games.
