The Rays are in Toronto to open a three-game series against the red-hot Blue Jays. Collin McHugh took the mound as an opener against Alek Manoah.
Before anything, it’s best to get this fact out of the way now: the offense did nothing all game long until the top of the 9th inning. The Rays offense, that is. Toronto’s offense did more than enough.
McHugh did a good job opening, working 2.1 scoreless innings with a strikeout while allowing three hits.
Ryan Yarbrough relieved and everything went downhill from there. The Blue Jays strung five-straight hits together in the bottom of the fourth inning, putting them ahead 4-0.
