TORONTO -- The New York Yankees will be trying to do something they have failed to do for the past three games when they play the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon. Cheap Air Max 90 2018 .They will try to score a run, or even better, several of them,The Yankees have not scored in their past three games, the past two against Toronto and the first against the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday.It is the first time the Yankees have been held scoreless in three consecutive games since July 27 (a doubleheader) and July 28, 1975.Its hard to explain, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after the 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon. We didnt have too many opportunities today. (Toronto starter Marcus) Stroman kept us in check (for seven innings). We just werent able to get anything going off him.You hope you go out and score the first inning the next day and that it kind of gets you going. Theres no lack of effort. You become disappointed when theres a lack of effort.The Yankees have been shut out six times in September and an American League-leading 13 times overall this season. They also have lost 10 of their past 13 games and are pretty well out of the race for a wild-card spot although still mathematically alive.They also will be trying to end a seven-game losing streak at Rogers Centre when they send out right-hander Michael Pineda (6-11, 4.89 ERA) against Toronto right-hander Marco Estrada (9-9, 3.62).The Blue Jays have won six of their past nine games and occupy the first American League wild-card spot.All of their runs Saturday came on the 20th homer of the season by Jose Bautista with two outs in the eighth inning against Yankees reliever Tyler Clippard.This season has been a struggle for Bautista, who has had two stints on the disabled list that have cost him 42 games.Hes heating up at the right time, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. He has been known to do some things in key spots. I was sitting on the bench with DeMarlo (bench coach Hale) and mentioned that to him (when Bautista batted in the eighth). Right guy, right time, basically.Bautista is showing that he might be a key figure down the September stretch and into October.He hit a ninth-inning homer on Wednesday to tie the score in Seattle, a game the Blue Jays went on to lose 2-1 in 12 innings to the Mariners.Bautista, who has put the Blue Jays ahead in a game with 14 of his homers this season, was not about to point to nagging injuries this season as an excuse for a .233 batting average and lower than usual power numbers.Everybody in here has been banged up or had to deal with something so I cant really point to that as an excuse, Bautista said. Do I feel better physically? Yes. Does that help? Probably. Ive been nicked up for the past fives, six years, and Ive had success before so Im not going to use that as an excuse.Estrada, who will start the third game of the four-game series against the Yankees on Sunday, ended a three-game losing streak Monday when he held the Mariners to one hit, three walks and no runs in seven innings. He had eight strikeouts in the 3-2 victory. It was his first win since Aug. 29.In four starts in September, he is 1/3 with a 5.49 ERA. Estrada is 2-0 with a 3.79 ERA in three starts against the Yankees this season and is 3-2 with a 4.09 ERA in nine career games, including eight starts, against them.Meanwhile, Pineda has not completed five innings in three of his past four starts. He is on an eight-start winless streak that matches his career high. He is 0-1 with a 4.02 ERA during that span, although the Yankee are 4-4 in those starts.In two starts this season against Toronto, he is 0-1 with a 1.64 ERA. He is 2/3 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 career starts against the Blue Jays.It wont matter how well Pineda might pitch, however, if the Yankees do not score.Whatever were doing right now its not working, which disappointing because we swung the bats well the first two games in Tampa, said Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who has had a sore neck and was limited to an inning in the field for the past two games. We just seem to have lost it the last few days.

Union spokesman Greg Bouris confirmed the appeal and said the players association had no further comment. Rodriguez, who was back at third base and batting third for the New York Yankees against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night, said he had "no reaction" to the filing of the grievance. "I dont think any of us thought it was going to be any different," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "As far as having a reaction, its kind of what I expected. Its part of the process that was negotiated between MLB and the players association and you let it play out. I expect him to play a lot. We need him to help us." Major League Baseball declined comment. Rodriguez was suspended through the 2014 season on Monday when the league penalized 13 players following an investigation into Biogenesis of America, a shuttled Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. The other 12 players accepted 50-game suspensions, but Rodriguez said he planned to fight. Union head Michael Weiner said the punishment for the slugger was "way out of line." Under the collective bargaining and joint drug agreements, discipline must meet a "just cause" standard. Rodriguezs punishment was scheduled to begin Thursday, but he is allowed to keep playing until the grievance is heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. He isnt expected to rule until November or December at the earliest. Coming back from hip surgery in January, Rodriguez played his first game of the season Monday night in the series opener at Chicago. The three-time AL MVP singled in his first at-bat and was 2 for 6 with a walk in his first two games. He followed that up by going 1 for 5 with a single and walk on Wednesday.

The Yankees are off Thursday and then open a three-game series against AL Central-leading Detroit on Friday night in New York. It will be the first home game for Rodriguez since the suspension was announced. "I am curious what its going to be like Friday," Girardi said. "Im not sure. And I dont really know what the appropriate response is. I dont think its my right to tell people how to respond certain situations." Asked how he expects to be received, Rodriguez said, "Im not sure." How would he like the crowd to react? "Same way you would like them," Rodriguez said. "Again, Im just super excited to come home, put on the pinstripes and play for the greatest fans in baseball." Rodriguez, who agreed to a 10-year, $275 million contract with the Yankees in December 2007, is the majors active leader with 647 career homers. He helped New York win the 2009 World Series, batting .365 with six homers and 18 RBIs in the post-season that year. In an interview on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM, former teammate Johnny Damon said Wednesday that title would be diminished if Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs during the playoff run. "I really havent gotten to think that far, but if thats how he was able to hit in the post-season, like he did that year, then yeah, absolutely," said Damon, who has been friends with Rodriguez since they were teenagers. "Then you start going and saying, Well, was anybody on their team cheating? "Theres just so many different factors that determine if a team wins, and A-Rod was a huge determining factor." Asked about Damons comments, Rodriguez said he hadnt seen what he had said. "I talk to Johnny all the time so no disappointment whatsoever," Rodriguez said.
