The Rays lost for an MLB-high 11th time while allowing two runs or less Friday in dropping a 2-1 game to the Blue Jays.
Tampa Bay outhit Toronto 10-4 in the contest, but could muster only a single run, that coming when Desmond Jennings homered in the third.
The Rays had pinch-runner Elliot Johnson cut down at home plate for the final out of the game. They’ve now lost 11 of their last 12 one-run games.
Brandon Morrow was the winning pitcher for the Jays tonight in his second start back from a strained oblique. He allowed one run on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings and struck out five.
Tampa Bay has scored more than two runs in just one of Hellickson’s 10 losses. They’ve scored three runs or fewer in 17 of his 25 starts.
