Rays hold on for 6-5 win over Blue Jays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays' 6-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night was their 62nd of the season. Alex Colome has saved 37 of them, the most in the major leagues.

Colome gave up a run for the first time in nine appearances. But after giving up hits to Kendrys Morales and Steve Pearce and a sacrifice fly that left the potential game-tying run on third base, he got a ground ball with the infield in and a flyout to finish the game.

"Even if things get a little hairy, he trusts his ability," winning pitcher Chris Archer said. "He's allowed to give up a run every now and then, he's human. But he got that save, and that's why he's a lock-down reliever."
