Marco Estrada tossed 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball and Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson both hit solo homers as the Blue Jays blanked the Yankees 2-0 on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

It’s the eighth consecutive victory¬†for the Blue Jays, who now stand just 1 1/2 games back of New York in the American League East standings.

Toronto beat the Yankees 2-1 on Friday and 6-0 on Saturday. This is the first time the Yankees have been shut out in back-to-back games since May of 1999, per MLB’s Stat of the Day Twitter feed.

Troy Tulowitzki must be loving all this winning stuff. He’s been a part of 11 wins and only one loss since leaving the last-place Rockies on July 28.
