Two AL East opponents will face off this week in the latest edition of TBS’ Sunday MLB on TBS.

The Yankees and Blue Jays will face off live at 1:00pm ET on TBS’ weekly MLB program Sunday MLB on TBS.  The game is the third in the teams’ four-game series.  The series’ closer is Monday night with first pitch set for 7:07pm.

Michael Pineda is expected to get the start for the Yankees in Sunday afternoon’s game while Marco Estrada (9-9) is expected to take the mound for Toronto.  Estrada’s last time on the mound was Monday against Seattle.  He was credited with the win in the Blue Jays’ 3-2 win over the Mariners.  Estrada shined in the game, fanning 8 while only allowing just 1 hit, 0 runs or earned runs, 3 walks and no home runs.  That was over the course of 7 innings pitched.

Pineda (6-11) last took the mound Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays.  Pineda pitched 5.1 innings in the Yankees 5-3 win over the Rays.  He had a rough time on the mound, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits 2 earned runs, 1 walk and no home runs while striking out 11.

The numbers seem to favor Toronto in Sunday’s game and the weekend’s series overall.  Toronto is almost as good at home as it is on the road so far this season, going 42-32 at home so far this season and 41-37 on the road.

New York meanwhile has been lackluster on the road going 35-42 on the road so far this season versus a home record of 44-31.  Even with both teams looking to get back in the “W” column this weekend – both teams lost their most recent games – Toronto’s chances are better having gone 5-5 in its last ten games versus New York going 3-7 in its last ten games.

Ernie Johnson will have the call in Sunday afternoon’s broadcast on TBS.  He will be joined in the booth by MLB on TBS analysts Ron Darling and Cal Ripken, Jr. for additional commentary.

MLB on TBS Pre-Game Show will precede Sunday afternoon’s broadcast of the Yankees and Blue Jays. Broadcast of the TBS Pre-Game Show begins at 12:30pm ET.  Casey Stern will anchor the program and will be joined by analysts Pedro Martinez and Gary Sheffield for additional commentary.

The NFC South goes under the lights next week as the NFL finishes off Week 3 of the 2016 – ’17 season.

Atlanta has scored 40 points against so far this season but also allowed 41 points to be scored against.  New Orleans meanwhile are close to that number, scoring 47 points so far but allowing 51 to be scored against.

Atlanta is winless at home so far this season while New Orleans is winless at home and on the road.  So Monday night’s game is going to be big for both teams in trying to get themselves on the right path.

Sean McDonough will have the call for Monday night’s NFC South matchup on ESPN.  He will be joined in the booth by Jon Gruden for additional commentary.  Reporter Lisa Salters will be on the sidelines with all of the latest in-game interviews and news.  Coverage kicks off at 8:15pm ET.
