Smoak hits tiebreaking homer in 8th, Jays beat Rays 5-3

TORONTO (AP) A sustained power surge from Josh Donaldson has put the Toronto Blue Jays back in the AL playoff picture.

With little production to speak of, meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Rays risk sliding right out of contention.

Justin Smoak hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, Donaldson added two solo blasts and the Blue Jays beat the Rays 5-3 on Thursday, completing a 7-3 home stand.
