Winless since the start of June, the task doesnt get any easier for Torontos Mark Buehrle on tonight with the veteran scheduled to go up against a longtime adversary. Buehrle looks to beat the New York Yankees for only the second time in his career as the Blue Jays begin a three-game series in the Bronx. The 35-year-old Buehrle appeared on his way to a career season nearly two months ago, improving to 10-1 with a victory over Kansas City on June 1. His earned run average at the time stood at 2.10. However, Buehrle has gone 0-5 with a 4.06 ERA in eight starts since, losing once to the Yankees in two starts over that time. His setback in New York on June 18 was his eighth consecutive losing decision to the Yankees and he is just 1-11 against them lifetime with a 5.81 ERA. The left-hander escaped with a no-decision versus Texas last time out on Sunday, giving up five runs on eight hits and three walks over six innings. He is 10-6 on the year with a 2.86 ERA. Both the Blue Jays and Yankees are putting heat on Baltimore in the race for first place in the American League East. Toronto and New York both find themselves three games back of the front-running Orioles thanks to some recent surges. The Blue Jays saw starter Marcus Stroman carry a no-hitter into the seventh inning of Thursdays 8-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Stroman ended up allowing one hit over seven scoreless frames, while Juan Francisco ended a double shy of the cycle, hitting a two-run homer and driving in four. But the true spotlight was on Stroman, who walked two and struck out seven to help Toronto go 5-2 on a seven-game homestand. "He pitched a hell of a game today," said Toronto catcher Dioner Navarro, whose club now begins a 10-game road trip. The Yankees, meanwhile, have lost just once in seven games since the All-Star break and took the final three of a four-game set with Texas by winning Thursdays finale 4-2. Brandon McCarthy pitched six strong innings for his second straight win, striking out five and giving up one run on four hits and two walks. The Yankees have won all three of his starts since acquiring the right-hander from the Diamondbacks on July 6 for Vidal Nuno. "They put up some long at-bats against him," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. "But he just kept at it, kept throwing strikes. ... He just found a way to get through it." The Yankees next turn to 39-year-old Hiroki Kuroda, who is 6-6 with a 3.88 ERA on the year. Kuroda did not factor into a 3-2 win over Cincinnati on Sunday, charged with one unearned run over 6 2/3 innings. The righty worked around three hits and two walks, striking out six. Kuroda is 5-3 with a 3.86 ERA in his career versus Toronto, including a recent road win on June 25. He gave up three runs over 6 1/3 frames of work. The Yankees have won six of nine versus the Blue Jays this season, including a three-game sweep at home from June 17-19. Jaleel Scott Jersey . Browns advice worked.

Im sure you heard Peter Forsbergs comments last week regarding Canadian referees in the gold medal game. Seems to me that he was questioning the integrity and impartiality. Kenny Young Jersey .ca presents a week long look at some of the teams and stories that will shape the up coming campaign. Robert Griffin III Jersey . The 19-year-old Swiss centre back will initially have to impress in Uniteds reserve side to earn a spot in the first team. Veseli says "Manchester United has a long history of younger players coming through and hopefully I can follow and do the same.Virat Kohli struck an unbeaten half-century as India kept their World Twenty20 hopes alive with a six-wicket win over arch rivals Pakistan in Kolkata. Shocked by New Zealand in their opening match, when they failed to chase 127 in Nagpur, the hosts kick-started their campaign by comfortably reeling in a victory target of 119 in a game reduced to 18 overs a side by rain.The result maintained Indias unbeaten record against Pakistan in 50-over World Cups and World T20s.They did not have it all their own way though, slipping to 23 for three after the five-over powerplay, but a 61-run partnership between Kohli and Yuvraj Singh got their side back on track.Despite Yuvraj departing for 24, Kohli steered India home with an unbeaten 55 from 37 deliveries to enhance their chances of qualifying from Group 2 with games against Australia and Bangladesh still to come.The Super-10 match, switched from Dharamsala due to security concerns, was reduced after rain delayed the start by an hour.India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to chase, his bowlers restricting Pakistan to 118 for five on a pitch that turned sharply from the off.Pakistan struggled for fluency until Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik joined forces in the 12th over, the fourth-wicket pair upping the tempo with a stand of 41 in 24 balls.Openers Sharjeel Khan and Ahmed Shehzad operated cautiously, adding 38 in 7.4 overs until the former mis-timed a pull off Suresh Rainas fourth ball and was well caught by a diving Hardik Pandya at mid-on.Shehzad, having passed 1,000 T20I runs, sliced Jasprit Bumrah to point to depart for 25 and Shahid Afridi, promoted to number three, holed out in the deep off Pandya to leave Pakistan 60 for three. India skipper MS Dhoni reflects on his side’s six-wicket win in the company of Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi But Malik struck 26 from 16 balls, the same amount of deliveries it took Umar to make 22, and the pair both showed intent by crashing the only sixes of the innings in the 14th over, bowled by Pandya.ddddddddddddThey departed in the space of four balls, Umar edging Ravindra Jadeja behind before Malik top-edged Ashish Nehra to short fine-leg.Indias chase started poorly as after Rohit Sharma skied Mohammad Amir to cover, Shikhar Dhawan and Raina played on to consecutive Mohammad Sami balls.Yuvraj survived the hat-trick delivery and then combined effectively with Kohli, the duo playing themselves in for five overs before starting to cut loose.Kohli swept Malik for four and six in the 11th but after Yuvraj pulled Wahab Riaz for a maximum, he holed out in the deep attempting to repeat the shot.Like he did against Pakistan in the recent Asia Cup, Kohli held the innings together and Dhoni smacked a six and then the winning single to complete victory with 13 balls to spare.Watch highlights of Indias win over Pakistan on Sky Sports 2 at 7pm.
