Bichette tied his career high with an 11-game hitting streak. He had three hits and also stole a base.
Alejandro Kirk also homered for the Blue Jays. Rafael Dolis (1-0) worked the ninth to get the win.
Judge hit two home runs for the Yankees, who went 2-4 on a road trip. New York also lost two of three at Tampa Bay.
“It’s the little things,” Judge said. “I looked back, it’s either baserunning mistakes, mistakes in the outfield, not coming up with just a clutch hit. There’s a bunch of things. For me personally, a couple thing I need to work on to help put this team in a better position to come out with better outcomes.”
The Yankees scored 23 runs over the six games away from home.
“Inconsistent,” Judge said. “That’s the word I keep coming back to. Not consistently having quality at-bats, put the ball in play when we need to, situational hitting.”
Toronto went 3-3 with one rainout in its first regular-season homestand at TD Ballpark, its spring training home.
The Blue Jays are playing their first three homestands through May in Florida because of COVID-19 restrictions in Canada. The team used its Triple-A stadium in Buffalo, New York, as a home base last year and could return there later this season.
The rotation behind Yankees ace Gerrit Cole was a concern entering the season and the overall numbers of the other starters have been suspect. They have a combined record of 1-4, and have allowed 28 runs and 48 hits over 36 2/3 innings in nine outings. Cole is 2-0 in three starts. He has given up three runs and 12 hits in 18 1/3 innings.
Yankees: SS Gleyber Torres (sore right ring finger) started after sitting out Tuesday’s game.
Blue Jays: Closer Julian Merryweather went on the 10-day IL with a strained left oblique.
Yankees: New York has not announced its starting pitcher but options include RHPs Michael King and Deivi García for Friday night’s game against Tampa Bay.
Blue Jays: Toronto could start RHP Tanner Roark (0-1) or use a bullpen day against Kansas City’ RHP Jakob Junis (0-0) on Thursday night.
