The streak is over. Jeremy Hellickson allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings tonight as the Rays topped the Blue Jays 4-1 at Tropicana Field. And just like that, Toronto’s winning streak ends at 11 games.
Hellickson entered tonight’s start with a 5.50 ERA on the year, but a second-inning single by J.P. Arencibia was the only offense the Blue Jays could muster against him. They squandered a bases-loaded opportunity against Alex Torres in the eighth inning, as they could only get one run on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Jose Bautista.
The Rays got all the offense they would need in the bottom of the second inning, as James Loney, Wil Myers, and Sam Fuld hit consecutive solo home runs off losing pitcher Esmil Rogers. You can watch the video of Myers’ shot below. It was a majestic blast.
