TORONTO (AP) - Ryan Roberts singled home the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-5 on Friday night.

 

Evan Longoria, Wil Myers, Kelly Johnson and Ben Zobrist all went deep off Toronto starter Esmil Rogers, but it was former Blue Jay Roberts whose two-out single off Steve Delabar was the key in lifting the Rays to their 15th win in 17 games.

 

Zobrist and Myers both had three hits, each coming within a triple of the cycle.

 

Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer for the Blue Jays, who got solo shots from Edwin Encarnacion, Brett Lawrie and J.P. Arencibia, but couldn't protect a 4-1 lead, losing for the ninth time in 12 games.

 

David Price (4-5) pitched seven innings for the win.

 

Johnson singled off Brett Cecil (3-1) to begin the eighth, bringing Delabar on in relief.
