(Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays are finally starting to play up to expectations. They will be put to the test this weekend, as they start a three-game series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Thanks to a few offseason deals that landed them reigning NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, as well as Jose Reyes, Melky Cabrera, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, Toronto was expected to compete. However, the new acquisitions have either struggled or been injured and the Blue Jays sit seven games under .500 and eight games back of the American League East-leading Yankees. Toronto, though, heads to New York having won four in a row and seven of its last 10. It could be getting hot at the right time. Following this set in the Bronx, the Blue Jays can further chip into their division deficit, as they host series against both Tampa Bay and Baltimore. "All we can do from here on out is play good consistent baseball," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "Weve dug a pretty big hole, and theres a lot of good teams in our division ... so it wont be easy. There still is a lot of time, but you got to play better baseball from here on out. "Lets face it, weve got to have some pretty good streaks in there, too." Getting the call on Friday will be one of Torontos newcomers, Buehrle, who is just 1-2 with a 6.19 ERA. Buehrle pitched well his last time out in Boston, but did not get a decision, despite yielding a run and five hits in seven innings of a 3-2 win. Buehrle could have his work cut out for him on Friday, as he is just 1-9 lifetime versus the Yankees with a 6.19 ERA in 14 starts. Hes 0-1 in two starts against them this year and has allowed seven earned runs in 12 1/3 innings of those outings, both Toronto losses. He hasnt beaten them since April 10, 2004. New York, meanwhile, will counter with Japanese righty Hiroki Kuroda, who has won five of his last six decisions. Kuroda beat the Kansas City Royals on Sunday, limiting them to a pair of runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings to run his record to 5-2 to go along with a 2.31 ERA. Kuroda defeated the Blue Jays back on April 25 and is 3-1 in five starts against them with a 3.82. New York could use a big start from Kuroda on Friday, as it enters this series having dropped two of three to the Seattle Mariners after falling 3-2 in Thursdays rubber match. Curtis Granderson finished 3-for-4 and scored a run for New York, which saw Andy Pettitte (4-3) depart after 4 2/3 innings due to a tight left trapezius muscle. The veteran left-hander, making his 499th career start, gave up two runs on four hits, walked three and struck out five. "Its been a battle my last four starts," said Pettitte. "My command just isnt what I want it to be." While the Pettitte injury doesnt seem too bad, the Yankees also lost catcher Chris Stewart to a groin injury that could land him on the disabled list. "When he went around the base and stopped, he said he felt something," Yankees skipper Joe Girardi said of his catcher. "He said it didnt pop. He said he was OK, but when we saw him run, he said it continued to hurt." The Yankees swept a four-game set from the Jays the last time these teams met in the Bronx and have won 16 of the last 18 meetings at home in this series.

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. CHICAGO -- The flashy speed is as advertised. Its the power that is a bit of a surprise, even for Tim Anderson.Anderson and Dioner Navarro each hit a two-run homer off CC Sabathia, helping James Shields and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 8-2 on Monday.Chicago had a string of 15 consecutive solo shots, matching a franchise record, before Anderson connected in the third inning, tying it at 2. Brett Lawrie hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the fifth before Navarro belted a drive to left field for his fifth homer.Anderson went 2 for 4 for his 12th multihit game since he was promoted from the minors on June 10.

Starlin Castro went 4 for 4 with two doubles in his first game in Chicago since the Yankees acquired the infielder in a December trade with the Cubs.Sabathia (5-6) struck out nine in six innings, but allowed five runs and eight hits. The big left-hander has dropped each of his last two starts and is winless in his last three outings with an 8.31 ERA during that stretch.I thought his stuff was much better than the numbers indicated, but thats baseball, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. You have to make pitches all the time.While Sabathia is struggling, Shields (4-9) got his second straight win after a long slump that started with San Diego and carried over to Chicago after he was acquired in a trade a month ago. The right-hander, who went 0-2 with a 15.80 ERA in his first four starts for the White Sox, limited New York to five hits in six innings.Youre going to have rough stretches pretty much every year, so its nothing crazy, Shields said. But were just going to continue to work hard and try to get this team some wins.The Yankees loaded the bases with two outs in the fourth, but Shields retired Aaron Hicks on a fly to right to end the inning.dddddddddddd They put the first two batters on in the eighth before Nate Jones struck out Didi Gregorius, Headley and Hicks -- all swinging.New York (40-42) went 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position.That was the difference in the game, Girardi said. They got the hits when they needed them and we didnt. We had plenty of opportunities.The Yankees also were hurt by three errors by the normally sure-handed Gregorius at shortstop, including a flubbed grounder that helped the White Sox score two runs in the eighth.Todd Frazier went 3 for 3 with two walks as Chicago (43-40) moved three games over .500 for the first time since June 3. It has won five of six and 10 of 14 overall.It was just one of those days, Frazier said.
