TORONTO — The New York Yankees’ offense has disappeared, and their playoffs chances also have pretty much vanished.

Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer off Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning Saturday and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Yankees, 3-0.

New York has been shut out in three straight games for the first time since July 27-28, 1975. The Yankees, who have lost 10 of 13 following a seven-game winning streak, dropped 41/2 games back for the AL’s second wild card with eight games left and likely will miss the playoffs for the third time in four years.

The Yankees, shut out for an AL-high 13th time, haven’t scored since Donovan Solano’s two-run homer in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s win at Tampa Bay. New York has gone 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position in its last three games and has stranded 20 runners.

RANGERS 5, ATHLETICS 0: The lone veteran in the lineup a day after Texas won another AL West title, Elvis Andrus hit a pair of two-run homers at Oakland, California.

Yu Darvish (6-5) had all the run support he needed on a couple big swings from Andrus, who had his first career multi-homer game. Andrus, who volunteered to play and will get a break Sunday, also established career highs for homers with eight and RBI with 68.

ROYALS 7, TIGERS 4: Paulo Orlando hit a tying, two-run double and Eric Hosmer followed with a three-run homer against Francisco Rodriguez, capping a ninth-inning comeback that led Kansas City at Detroit.

Given a 4-2 lead, Rodriguez (3-4) allowed singles to Alex Gordon and Hunter Dozier before Orlando’s double. Cheslor Cuthbert walked and Hosmer hit his 24th homer.

TWINS 3, MARINERS 2: Miguel Sano hit a tiebreaking homer in the fourth inning and Tyler Duffey pitched seven strong innings for his best start in more than a month as Minnesota won at Minneapolis.

Sano’s 24th homer followed Nelson Cruz’s tying two-run shot for Seattle in the top of the fourth.

ANGELS 10, ASTROS 4: Kole Calhoun had three hits and two RBI, and Los Angeles scored nine runs in the final two innings at Houston.

WHITE SOX 8, INDIANS 1: Cleveland blew some early chances at home against Jose Quintana and lost. Its magic number to clinch the AL Central is two.


CARDINALS 10, CUBS 4: Yadier Molina drove in four runs, Stephen Piscotty homered and St. Louis won at Chicago.

REDS 6, BREWERS 1: Dan Straily pitched into the seventh inning and Joey Votto hit a two-run homer to lift Cincinnati at Milwaukee.

PHILLIES 10, METS 8: New York fell behind by 10 runs early at home and finished just short of what would have been the largest comeback victory in team history.

NATIONALS 6, PIRATES 1: Washington clinched a postseason berth and no worse than a tie for the National League East title, winning at Pittsburgh behind 51/3 scoreless innings from rookie reliever Reynaldo Lopez.

MARLINS 6, BRAVES 4: Derek Dietrich hit a two-run homer to help Miami win at home and end Atlanta’s winning streak at seven games.


ORIOLES 6, DIAMONDBACKS 1: Trey Mancini hit his third homer in nine major league at-bats, Mark Trumbo connected for his league-leading 45th homer and Baltimore won at home.
