Rays Vs. Blue Jays Final Score: Rays Beat Jays 11-5, Keep Playoff Hopes Alive

The Tampa Bay Rays kept their playoff hopes alive on Saturday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 11-5 in Tampa.

Desmond Jennings, Evan Longoria, Jose Molina and B.J. Upton all hit home runs, and the offense helped out on a poor pitching night from Matt Moore. Moore only lasted 2⅔ innings, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks. Burke Badenhop came on in relief for Moore and recorded the win. Brandon Morrow took the loss for Toronto, giving up five runs in four innings while allowing five hits and four walks.

The Rays are 6.5 games behind the Yankees for the AL East and 3.5 games behind the Athletics for the second wild card spot with 10 games remaining. They'll go for the sweep on Sunday at 1:40 p.m. ET.
