Toronto, ON. -- Nobody could say the Rays didn't give their all. One look at Elliot Johnson's bloodied face spoke volumes.

Unfortunately for Johnson and the Rays, the play at the plate in which Johnson's face got marked up ended the game, handing the Rays yet another one-run loss.

The Blue Jays came away 2-1 winners over the Rays on Friday night at Rogers Centre, which means the Rays have now lost six of their past seven games and 11 of their past 12 one-run games.

Don't blame the Giants for wishing that August had 32 days, or 46, or some other ridiculous number.

That's because the Giants assembled some ridiculously grand statistics of their own during August, which ended with Friday's 6-4 loss to the Cubs. San Francisco never recovered after an unusually ragged Madison Bumgarner yielded five runs in the first three innings.
