Purcey K's 11 in loss
Photos
Rays 1, Blue Jays 0
David Purcey allowed just one run in a complete game but took the loss. (Chris O'Meara/AP)
David Purcey made one mistake against the Rays, but it resulted in a solo homer by Carlos Pena, which became the difference in the game. Outside of that mistake in the fourth inning, Purcey was stellar, as he gave up just five hits and struck out a career-high 11 batters.
