ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Carlos Pena homered and Evan Longoria added a pair of hits Monday to help the Tampa Bay Rays defeat Toronto 6-2.

Pena drove in a run with a first-inning sacrifice fly and added a three-run blast in the third to give the Rays a 5-1 lead.

Longoria capped the scoring with an eighth-inning sac fly and Tampa Bay took the opener of a three-game series at Tropicana Field with their seventh win in nine contests.

They entered the game tied with the New York Yankees atop the American League East.

Wade Davis (11-9) gave up six hits and two runs over 7 2/3 innings, fanning three without a walk.

Blue Jays starter Brett Cecil (11-7) surrendered five hits and five runs (two earned) over seven innings.
