ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Jeremy Hellickson allowed one hit in seven shutout innings and rookie Wil Myers homered in his home debut, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Blue Jays 4-1 on Monday night to end Toronto's 11-game winning streak.
Myers hit the second of three straight Tampa Bay homers in the second, connecting in his first at-bat at Tropicana Field. His drive to center off Esmil Rogers (3-3) was sandwiched between home runs by James Loney and Sam Fuld as Tampa Bay went deep three times in a span of eight pitches.
Luke Scott added a bloop RBI double to make it 4-0 in the third, and that was all the support Hellickson (6-3) needed. Fernando Rodney worked the ninth, earning his 16th save in 21 opportunities.
The Blue Jays were limited to four singles and five walks. They came up short in their bid to extend the longest winning streak in the majors since Detroit won 12 straight in 2011.
Toronto's winning streak matched the best in club history. The Blue Jays also won 11 in a row in 1987 and 1998.
INDIANS 5, ORIOLES 2
BALTIMORE (AP) - Michael Brantley homered and had four RBIs to lead Cleveland past Baltimore for its ninth win in 12 games.
Brantley put the Indians ahead with a two-run single off Zach Britton (1-2) in the sixth inning and made it 5-2 with a two-run shot in the eighth off Darren O'Day. His four RBIs tied a career high, reached twice previously.
The victory improved Cleveland's record against the AL East to 7-17 and provided an uplifting start to an 11-game road trip.
Ubaldo Jimenez (6-4) allowed two runs in 5 1-3 innings and Vinnie Pestano, the fourth Indians reliever, worked the ninth for his fourth save.
Nick Markakis and Matt Wieters homered for the Orioles, who have lost four straight.
