The New York Yankees offense is alive well again after experiencing a three-week power outage.
On Tuesday, the Yankees extended their winning streak to six games after thumping the Toronto Blue Jays 20-6 at Yankee Stadium.
The 20-run output nearly doubled New York’s prior season best — 11 runs against the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 15 — and as many keen observers have noted, it’s also higher than the New York Jets and New York Giants outputs during Week 1 of the NFL season.

We’re not sure if that’s more encouraging for the Yankees or discouraging for New York’s football squads. The Jets fell 27-17 to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon. The Giants were soundly defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-16, on Monday Night Football.
