 TORONTO (AP) -Adam Lind hit a three-run homer, John-Ford Griffin added a solo shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 5-3 on Saturday.
The Blue Jays have won 10 of 15, while Tampa Bay has lost 13 of 17.
Toronto broke a 1-all tie with a four-run eighth against reliever Dan Wheeler (0-5). Reed Johnson started the rally by reaching base on a throwing error, Matt Stairs walked and Russ Adams, pinch hitting for Frank Thomas, bunted down the third base line. Wheeler fielded the ball and threw to Joel Guzman, but he couldn't find first base with his foot.
With the bases loaded, Hill hit a sacrifice fly and Lind connected to right-center.
Scott Downs (4-2) earned the win by getting pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes to ground into an inning-ending double play in the eighth.
