In a case of just "one of those things,'' the Rays have dominated the Jays this season, winning six of the eight meetings by a combined score of 55-22, including 19-1 the past two nights. (By the way, the Rays are 31-13 against Toronto dating back to 2007.) Even Rays who have been struggling wake up when the Jays come to town. Carlos Pena hit another homer (his fourth in three games) and Dioner Navarro homered for the first time this season. Ben Zobrist also homered as David Price won his American League-leading ninth game.
