The Rays look to keep pace with the Yankees in playing the second game of this three-game set at Tropicana Field.
Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays
Toronto fell 6-2 in the series opener against the Rays at Tropicana Field, with a costly error by second baseman Aaron Hill proving too difficult to fight back from. “I’m not going to fault my guys for playing hard,” Monday night’s starter Brett Cecil said. “I’ve got to take it upon myself.” The Blue Jays had won four straight against the Rays in the season series, but now trail 7-6 with last night’s loss. Offensively, the team has been led by outfielder Jose Bautista, recently named AL Player of the Week for August 23-29. Over those seven days, he hit .500 with eight extra-base hits and four home runs. Bautista currently leads the majors with 42 home runs. The club owns a 33-36 mark away from the Rogers Centre this season, including a 12-11 record on the road. Toronto is a disappointing 7-13 as a road underdog of +125 to +150 this season (-360) and the total is 10-9 O/U in those contests.
