Rays 2, Blue Jays 1
Adam Lind hit his fourth homer of the year on Friday. (John Meric/AP)
Adam Lind launched a homer to right in the third inning, and for a while, A.J. Burnett cruised with the one-run lead. But he allowed a two-run shot in the seventh, and while the Jays got a man on third with one out in the eighth, they were unable to tie the game.
