Jays ace Ryu will try to even series with Rays

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu finds himself right back at the same place and in another big moment as when the regular season started.

The team's top offseason acquisition will take the mound Wednesday in Game 2 of the American League first-round series against Tampa Bay with the rival Rays holding a 1-0 lead.

The second contest in the best-of-three series has a 4 p.m. (TBS) first pitch in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Blake Snell and three relievers shut down Toronto's high-powered offense Tuesday's series opener, 3-1 -- holding the visitors to five hits -- and the Blue Jays hope Ryu can level the short series.
