A recap of last night's Toronto/Tampa Bay Game Two of three.
The Toronto Blue Jays are still in the wild card race after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays last night 4-2.

Jays starting pitcher, Alek Monoah, had a good night on the mound, going six innings, allowing just two earned runs and struck out seven batters.

Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo, said after the game that he thought that Monoah was a bit off last night, but is still competitive.

"He,(Monoah) competes," said Montoyo.

Despite Monoah's good pitching, the Blue Jays walked 11 batters during the game.

Brandon Lowe put Tampa on top 1-0 in the bottom of the second inning.

Toronto's Lourdes Gurriel Jr. scored on a routine ground and hit a solo home run.

Jay's Marcus Semien scored on a sacrifice fly and Teoscar Hernandez had a RBI single.

Tampa's Joey Wendle had a RBI single.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Gurriel Jr. went two for four at the plate.

Tampa's starting pitcher, Drew Rasmussen pitched five innings and allowed four hits.
