Percival falters

Blue Jays 7, Rays 4
James Shields allowed three runs on six hits over eight frames Saturday. (J.P. Moczulski/AP)
James Shields kept it close for eight frames, and late rallies in the ninth and 13th gave the Rays hope, but Troy Percival loaded the bases later that inning, dropping the series on a walk-off. The Rays have lost four of their last five games.
