St. Peterburg- Travis d'Arnaud and Daniel Robertson produced two races when there were two outs of the eighth inning, so that the Tampa Bay Rays won the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday 5-3.
In that eighth chapter, Jordan Romano (0-2) handed a ticket to the emerging J-Man Choi, before Kevin Kiermaier shook a double. As an emergent, D’Arnaud hit a sacrifice fly that pushed Michael Brosseau, who entered as a substitute on the trails, to match the 3-3 board.
Robertson, who had matched the game through a double tug in the seventh inning, hit a single against Ryan Tepera, so that Kiermaier scored another race.
Nick Anderson (5-4) took the victory, while Oliver Drake delivered three strikeouts in a row to credit his second save three times.
The Rays won for the ninth time in 10 games, at a time when they fight against Oakland and Cleveland for one of two wild-card tickets in the American League.
For the Blue Jays, Dominicans Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 4-1 with one scored, Teoscar Hernández 1-0.
For the Rays, the Venezuelan Avisaíl García 5-2 with one scored, Jesús Aguilar 4-0. The Dominican Willy Adames 1-0 with a towed.
