Brandon Morrow carried a no-hitter into the sixth and allowed just one run in seven-plus innings, and Adam Lind hit a first inning two-run homer, leading the Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays last night, in front of 11,335 in the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Lind's homer, his 8th of the season, came with Aaron Hill on base, staking the Jays to a 2-0 lead. Hill brought in Fred Lewis with a fifth inning single, edging the lead up to 3-0. Tampa Bay mounted their usual late game rally, with two in the eighth. B.J. Upton drove in John Jaso with a one-out triple to right, then scored on Willy Aybar's ground out to second. The Rays got runners at the corners in the ninth with one out, as Evan Longoria tripled and Carlos Pena walked. Longoria was thrown out at home by shortstop Alex Gonzalez on Jaso's grounder. Kevin Gregg came out of the bullpen and got Gabe Kapler to ground to short, with the force on Jason at second ending the game and giving Toronto the win.

Morrow got the win for the Blue Jays, he's now 4-4. Tampa Bay starter Matt Garza, allowed 3 earned runs on 10 hits with 3 strike outs in 6 1/3 innings to take the loss, he's now 5-4.

The Rays, 34-18, saw their A.L. East lead over the Yankees shrink to 2 1/2 games. Game two of the three-game set at Toronto is tonight at 7:07pm EDT on 620 WDAE and the Rays Radio Network. You can also watch the game on Sun Sports and MLB.TV.
