Sept. 28, 2013 at 5:10 PM

TORONTO, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Adam Lind drove in three runs to back J.A. Happ's strong start Saturday and the Toronto Blue Jays handed playoff-hopeful Tampa Bay a key 7-2 loss.

Lind provided a score-tying RBI single in the third inning and broke a 1-1 deadlock with a two-run hit in the fourth against reliever Alex Torres (4-2) that put the Blue Jays head to stay.

Ryan Goins and Kevin Pillar each belted a two-run homer for Toronto.

Happ (5-7) controlled the Rays on one run over 7 1/3 innings, allowing five hits with a walk while striking out four.

Wil Myers and Delmon Young each supplied an RBI for Tampa Bay, which dropped a second straight following an eight-game winning streak.

The loss dropped the Rays into a tie with the Texas Rangers for the second and final American League wild-card spot with one game remaining.
