NEW YORK -- Kansas City players tipped their caps to Derek Jeter when the retiring New York Yankees captain walked up to the plate in the first inning. Adidas Shoes Clearance Sale . Then the Royals went back to work trying to make some history of their own. Yordano Ventura pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning, and the AL Central leaders beat the Yankees 2-0 Sunday on a pair of unearned runs for their second shutout in the three-game series. Trying for its first playoff berth since winning the 1985 World Series, Kansas City maintained a two-game lead in the AL Central over the second-place Tigers, who defeated San Francisco 6-1 on Sunday night. The Royals headed to Detroit for a three-game series that starts Monday. "Were playing great baseball," manager Ned Yost said. "Were pitching, and were playing defence and scoring runs and winning ballgames, and thats all I can ask." Kansas City scored due to errors by pitcher Shane Greene in the second inning and right fielder Carlos Beltran in the third. The Royals won 1-0 Friday night on an unearned run following third baseman Chase Headleys error and went 4-3 against the Yankees this year to take the season series for the first time since 1999. And they won on Derek Jeter Day, when many Yankees stars of the past returned for a 45-minute ceremony that also included NBA great Michael Jordan and baseball ironman Cal Ripken Jr. Video messages from athletes, celebrities and even astronauts in space were shown throughout the day. "Oh, man! That was, honestly, one of the coolest things Ive ever seen," Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas said. "Any time anyone came on that board or anyone they announced, I got chills." Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie suggested to his teammates that they tip their caps. "He was my favourite player growing up," Guthrie said. "I was there for the final game at (the original) Yankee Stadium. I was there when he recorded his 2,723rd hit that broke the hits record for the Yankees. ... And now to be here for this -- Ive seen quite a few really cool moments." Kansas City, which hasnt been in first place this late in a season since 1989, hopes to give its fans a reason to celebrate this fall. Ventura (12-9) won his third straight start, leaving after a leadoff walk in the seventh -- his fourth of the game. "When I was able to throw the curve for a strike, it really helped all of the other pitches and made for quick innings," he said through a translator. "When the curveball wasnt getting over for a strike, that could have been the difference in the walks." With closer Greg Holland sidelined by a strained right triceps, Aaron Crow, Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis combined for one-hit relief. Kansas City went ahead in the second when Josh Willingham reached on an infield single near the mound, advanced on Moustakas single and scored with two outs when Nori Aoki hit a slow roller that Greene (4-3) threw wildly past first base. Beltran dropped Alex Gordons easy fly leading off the third, and Gordon stole second before scoring on a single by Eric Hosmer, his first RBI since July 29. "Any way you can score runs is a good way," Moustakas said. "It doesnt matter how they get across as long as youre scoring." TRAINERS ROOM Royals: LHP Danny Duffy headed back to Kansas City for an MRI of his sore left shoulder. Yost said Holland played catch, "felt much, much better today" and will have his status re-examined Monday. Yankees: OF Brett Gardner missed his second straight game because of a lower abdominal strain. UP NEXT Royals: RHP Jeremy Guthrie (10-10) is slated to pitch Monday, with Justin Verlander (12-12) on the mound for the Tigers. Yankees: RHP Hiroki Kuroda (10-8) starts Tuesdays series opener against Tampa Bay RHP Chris Archer (8-8). BIRTHDAY BOY Pitching on his 29th birthday, Davis got his second save of the series -- and his big league career. After Beltran singled over first leading off the ninth, Davis struck out Brian McCann on a 3-2 pitch, retired Mark Teixeira on a soft grounder to third and fanned Stephen Drew on another full-count pitch. Davis has 94 strikeouts in 63 1-3 innings this season and has allowed one run in 53 innings dating to late April. That run scored when he hit the Los Angeles Dodgers A.J. Ellis with a bases-loaded pitch on June 25. ROAD WARRIORS Kansas City is 6-0-1 in its last seven road series. Adidas Shoes Cheap Wholesale .

Happ will make his first start of the season and has made three appearances out of the bullpen, allowing two runs and three hits in 4 1/3 innings of work. A sore back landed Happ on the DL to start the season. Happ has four Ks and five walks on the season and the Blue Jays have lost all three games the left-hander has competed in. He played with the Phillies from 2007 through parts of 2010 before being traded to Houston, and has won both of his starts in this series, accumulating a 2.19 ERA in 12 1/3 frames. Toronto is coming off a 7-2 victory of the Pirates on Sunday. Colby Rasmus belted a grand slam in the second inning and finished with three hits and two runs scored.

Dustin McGowan was solid on the mound for the Jays, tossing seven innings of one-run ball and allowing just three hits with five strikeouts and three walks. "It was good to get a win for this team," said McGowan. "It was something we needed and maybe it will give us a little boost going forward." The Blue Jays are 2-4 on an eight-game road trip and will return to Rogers Centre later this week to start a nine-game homestand. They will start the stay with two games versus the Phillies.

In Sundays 1-0 win in the rubber match, Chase Utleys RBI single stood as the winning run and scored Jimmy Rollins, who stroked a one-out triple.

Mike Adams and Antonio Bastardo got the final two outs in the eighth and closer Jonathan Papelbon worked around a hit in the ninth to post his ninth save.

Kendrick is still searching for his first win of the season and has an 0-2 record with a 3.52 earned run average in five starts. The Phillies are 2-3 in that time. Kendrick did not figure into the decision of a 7-3 win at Los Angeles on April 24 and allowed just two runs on 10 hits and a walk over 5 2/3 frames. He has given up at least two runs in each of his past four starts (11 total).
