St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Jeremy Hellickson cooled off baseball's
hottest team, firing seven shutout innings to enable the Tampa Bay Rays to
stop the Toronto Blue Jays' 11-game win streak with a 4-1 triumph at Tropicana
Hellickson (6-3) limited a Toronto offense that averaged 6.4 runs over the
club's franchise record-tying unbeaten stretch to just one hit -- a J.P.
Arencibia single in the second inning -- to improve to 4-1 in June. The right-
hander did issue four walks after going four straight starts and a total of 26
innings without one.
He got all the support he needed from the trio of James Loney, Wil Myers and
Sam Fuld, who socked back-to-back-to-back solo home runs off Esmil Rogers in
the bottom of the second.
Myers finished 2-for-4 in the rookie's first-ever game at Tropicana Field,
with Luke Scott contributing an RBI double to help the Rays take the opener of
this three-game set.
Rogers (3-3) surrendered all four Tampa runs on seven hits over six innings of
