The Toronto Blue Jays will try to push their winning streak to four in a row tonight as they play the middle contest of a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays. After closing July on a six-game winning streak, the Blue Jays won consecutive games just twice in August, including the first two contests of their current winning streak. They extended their current run on Tuesday with an 8-2 victory over the Rays. Jose Reyes had a three-run homer, Dioner Navarro connected on a two-run shot and Danny Valencia added a solo homer for the Blue Jays, who are 5 1/2 games out of the American Leagues second wild card spot. R.A. Dickey earned the win after holding Tampa Bay to just two runs off two hits and three walks with six strikeouts over seven solid innings. "From a movement standpoint, I had a really good knuckleball tonight," Dickey said. Ryan Hanigan and Kevin Kiermaier each had an RBI for the Rays, who mustered just two hits and have dropped six of their last nine games. Jeremy Hellickson lasted just 3 1/3 innings as the right-handers struggles at home continued. He gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks to stretch his winless streak at Tropicana Field to 10 straight starts. "A lot of it was poorly-located pitches at the wrong time," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "That three-run home run was the difference in the game." Toronto will go for the series victory tonight behind right-hander Marcus Stroman, who struggled in his first career meeting with the Rays on Aug. 22. The rookie was hit hard in the 8-0 loss, charged with five earned runs, 10 hits and three walks over five innings of work. Stroman did rebound to beat Boston 5-2 on Wednesday and snap a string of three straight losing decisions. The 23-year-old held the Red Sox to two runs -- one earned -- on five hits over 7 2/3 frames with six strikeouts, moving to 8-5 on the season with a 3.88 earned run average. Countering for the Rays will be right-hander Chris Archer and hell be trying to put his most recent outing in the rearview. Archer had been charged with only one earned run in four straight outings, including a seven-inning no-decision at Toronto on Aug. 24, before getting lit up by Boston on Friday. Archer was hammered for eight runs -- seven earned -- and 10 hits over four innings in taking an 8-4 loss. "This game has a funny way of humbling you, and tonight was a very humbling experience. Im disappointed in myself," said Archer, who dipped to 8-7 with a 3.40 ERA on the year. The 25-year-old has never lost in seven previous meetings with the Blue Jays, going 2-0 with a 2.90 ERA. Though Toronto leads the season series 8-6, Tampa Bay has won four of the past six meetings.

HOUSTON -- Nolan Reimold found out he was starting right before batting practice Thursday night. He made the most of the chance to play. Reimold hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking solo shot in the ninth, and the streaking Toronto Blue Jays rallied for a 6-5 win over the Houston Astros. Reimold was claimed off waivers on July 6 after he was designated for assignment by Baltimore. It was just his fifth start with Toronto. Manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays got Reimold and Danny Valencia for a reason. Valencia, who was acquired in a trade with Kansas City on Monday, had two hits. "Theyve both played in the big leagues and had some success and theyre both going to help us out," Gibbons said. Reimolds first homer came in the fifth and cut Houstons lead to 4-3. His second homer of the season was off Chad Qualls (1-3) and sent Toronto to its ninth win in 10 games. It was Reimolds second career multihomer game and first since May 26, 2011. "I was trying to be aggressive," Qualls said. "I just wanted to be really aggressive with the fastball to get ahead. He ambushed it and hit it over the fence." Reimold has been hampered by an assortment of injuries the last two years. He said Thursday night helped show he might be back. "Its been two years since I could say that I feel like I am good enough to play again," Reimold said. "Its been a long process, so hopefully, all the work I did to come back pays off." Jose Bautista and Dioner Navarro also had solo homers for Toronto. Bautista connected for his 21st homer in the first, and Navarro tied it at four with his eighth in the sixth. Aaron Sanchez (2-0) threw two scoreless innings for the win, and Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his 18th save. Jon Singleton homered for Houston, and Robbie Grossman had two hits. "Their four solo home runs proved to be the difference in the game," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "Theyre definitely a power-hitting team." TThe Astros scored three times in the third to open a 4-2 lead.dddddddddddd Grossman and Marc Krauss each hit an RBI single off Drew Hutchison, and Jason Castro had an RBI double. Hutchison was charged with four runs and six hits in three innings. He is 2-5 with a 6.64 ERA in his last eight starts. Gregorio Petits run-scoring groundout gave Houston a 5-4 lead in the sixth, but Bautista tied it again with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Jake Buchanan started for Houston after scheduled starter Jarred Cosart was dealt to Miami earlier in the day. Buchanan allowed three runs and five hits in five innings. TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: First baseman Dan Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. The Blue Jays recalled right-hander Chad Jenkins from Triple-A Buffalo. Astros: Either outfielder George Springer, who has been on the disabled list since July 20, or Dexter Fowler, who has been on the DL since June 27, could go on a rehab assignment during the next road trip, which starts Monday, Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said. ON DECK Left-hander J.A. Happ (8-5, 4.58 ERA) starts for Toronto on Friday against his former team. The Astros are sending right-hander Collin McHugh (4-9, 3.45 ERA) to the mound. RASMUS SCRATCHED Toronto outfielder Colby Rasmus was scratched for being late to the stadium. "I wasnt here when I was supposed to be here, and they punished me as they should have," Rasmus said. Anthony Gose started in centre field, and Rasmus entered in seventh as a defensive substitution. HOUSTON TRADE Houston acquired outfielder Jake Marisnick, infielder Colin Moran and right-hander Frances Martes as well as a 2015 compensatory draft pick from Miami for right-hander Jarred Cosart, infielder Kike Hernandez and outfielder Austin Wates. Right-hander Brad Peacock, who was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, will likely take Cosarts place in the Houston rotation, Luhnow said. ' ' '
