Rays Double Blue Jays 8-4

Jake Bauers hit his first career home run to put Tampa Bay ahead in the fourth inning and the Rays went on to an 8-4 victory over the Blue Jays.

Bauers' two-run homer off Sam Gaviglia after Matt Duffy's single erased a 4-3 Toronto lead.

Tampa Bay tacked on three runs in the seventh with the help of a bases-loaded throwing error by reliever John Axford.

Left-hander Ryan Yarbrough, who leads the major leagues with 44 relief innings, started and pitched six innings for the Rays.

Bauers, playing in his fifth major league game, got on base his first four times and scored three runs.

Rookie Willy Adames, recalled earlier yesterday from the minor leagues, also drove in two runs for the Rays, who won for only the second time in 11 games.
