Blue Jays try to get even with Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Toronto's powerful bats were supposed to lead the Blue Jays in 2017; but, with 36 games left, the best the offense can do is lead the Jays out of last place in the American League East.

The Blue Jays belted six home runs Wednesday in a 7-6 victory against the Rays -- their most in any game since 2012 -- and the six homer hitters matched a franchise record.

With a win in Thursday's series finale, Toronto would pull into a virtual tie with Tampa Bay after an extended stay alone in the cellar.
