Donaldson homers, Tepesch wins as Blue Jays beat Rays 2-1

The slugger hit a two-run homer in the first inning for the second consecutive game, Nick Tepesch won for the first time in almost three years and Toronto beat the slumping Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Monday night.

Donaldson, who had a two-run homer in the first inning of Sunday's win over Pittsburgh, connected this time off Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi, hitting a full-count pitch just over the wall in right.

The flying bat ended up in the stands, where a fan wearing a baseball glove managed to catch it, juggling it once before using his bare hand to corral the wayward lumber.

Rays: LHP Blake Snell (0-6, 4.69 ERA) has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his past six starts, but has finished six innings just three times in 15 outings this season.

Blue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (5-7, 4.85) pitched seven shutout innings against the Yankees last time out to snap a 12-start winless streak.
