Devon Travis’ career night helps Jays snap batting slump vs. Rays

TORONTO – Devon Travis had a career-high four hits as the Toronto Blue Jays busted out of their offensive slump to score a 7-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

Travis hit a go-ahead bases-loaded single in the seventh inning and Jose Bautista added a two-run double to push the Jays in front for good in the opener of a six-game homestand.

Toronto came alive offensively after an ultimately successful road trip (4-3 record) that nonetheless saw the club mostly neutralized offensively (17 runs scored). The seven runs scored Monday night at Rogers Centre were the most by the club this month and helped end a two-game slide.

The Jays entered the night a game back of Baltimore for first place in the American League East.
