Reyes lifts Blue Jays over Rays 5-4 in 10 innings

IAN HARRISON Associated Press Published:

TORONTO (AP) -- Jose Reyes singled home the winning run in the 10th inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Saturday.

Colby Rasmus reached on a bunt single to begin the 10th against Joel Peralta (2-4) and stole second as Munenori Kawasaki struck out for the second out.

Jeff Beliveau came on to face Reyes, who grounded a single between second and third. Rasmus slid home safely, knocking over catcher Curt Casali as the ball rolled away.

Dustin McGowan (5-3) worked one inning for the win, and the Blue Jays improved to 6-13 in August.

Toronto took a 4-3 lead in the seventh when Dioner Navarro hit a two-run homer off Brad Boxberger, but closer Casey Janssen couldn't hold on. Pinch-hitter James Loney singled home the tying run with one out in the ninth, handing Janssen his fourth blown save.
