TORONTO (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays used big games by a pair of former National Leaguers to keep their American League wild-card playoff hopes alive.Austin Meadows drove in three runs Drew Robinson Jersey , Tommy Pham had two hits and two RBIs and the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 11-3 on Friday night.Pham also walked twice and added a sacrifice fly as Tampa Bay recovered from a tough, 9-8 loss Thursday, when the Blue Jays scored seven runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the victory. The Rays have not lost consecutive games since Aug. 17-18 at Boston.“We’ve got a bunch of guys who are quick to forget a loss,” manager Kevin Cash said. “They bounced right back and put pressure on the defense and the pitchers right out of the gate.”Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit two home runs for the Blue Jays, and Randal Grichuk added a solo shot. Toronto has lost 10 of 14 games against Tampa Bay this season.Gurriel Jr.’s older brother, Yuli, hit two home runs for Houston on Friday night. They are the first brothers in major league history to have multihomer games on the same day.“I’m happy for him, but for me as well,” Gurriel Jr. said through a translator.The brothers will play one another for the first time as big leaguers next week when the Astros visit Toronto.“I’m very happy, but I’m also curious,” Gurriel. Jr. said. “It’s a little bit weird.”The Rays remained 6 ½-games behind Oakland in the race for the second American League wild card spot. Tampa Bay is 15-4 in September.Pham began the season with St. Louis, while Meadows started the year with the Pirates. Both were acquired in July 31 trades.Pham is batting .348 with five homers and 18 RBI in 30 games since joining the Rays.“He just has a lot of solid at-bats,” Cash said. “He hits the ball really hard.”Pham tripled for the second straight game , the second time in his career he’s done it. All five of his triples this season have come with the Rays.“When I use the whole field, it’s kind of hard to defend,” Pham said.Pham got an advance look at Meadows when they were opponents in the NL Central, and came away impressed.“I played against him earlier in the season when he was with Pittsburgh and he was on fire,” Pham said. “It seemed like we couldn’t get him out.”Promoted from Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Meadows went 3-for-3 with two singles and a double after replacing injured designated hitter Ji-Man Choi (left knee) in the sixth.“I’m honored to be a part of this team right now, especially the way they’ve been rolling,” Meadows said.Diego Castillo opened for the Rays and allowed one run and one hit in one inning. Jalen Beeks (5-1) followed by allowing two runs in three innings, Adam Kolarek worked 1 2-3, Hunter Wood got one out, and Austin Pruitt pitched the final three innings for his third save.Making his sixth career start, Blue Jays right-hander Sean Reid-Foley (2-4) allowed for runs, two earned Robinson Chirinos Jersey , and six hits in four-plus innings.THREE OF A KINDGurriel, who hit a game-tying homer in the ninth inning of Toronto’s win on Thursday, became the first rookie in Blue Jays history to homer in three straight at bats when he connected off Diego Castillo in the first and off Jalen Beeks in the fourth. Gurriel Jr. is the 14th Toronto player to achieve the feat, the first since Josh Donaldson on Sept. 16-17, 2017.DOUBLE DIGITSGurriel Jr.’s homers were his 10th and 11th, giving Toronto a franchise-record 11 players with at least 10 home runs. The Yankees lead the majors with 12.GOMEZ GOES OFFAfter being ejected from Thursday’s game, Rays OF Carlos Gomez went to the clubhouse and posted several tweets criticizing the performance of home plate umpire Andy Fletcher. Gomez didn’t back down Friday, accusing Fletcher of missing “more than 30” pitches.“He’s the one that should have been thrown out last night because he’s the only one who didn’t do his job,” Gomez fumed.TRAINER’S ROOMRays: Cash said Choi’s knee buckled when he was running the bases after hitting a single in the first. Choi is not expected to start Saturday.UP NEXTRays RHP Tyler Glasnow (2-6, 4.22) faces Blue Jays LHP Thomas Pannone (3-1, 3.77) on Saturday afternoon. Glasnow allowed seven runs and five hits in 2-3 of an inning in a Sept. 5 loss at Toronto. Pannone has won his past two starts, including a Sept. 16 outing at Yankee Stadium.__ BOSTON (AP) — Now that he’s rebuilt his pitch count, Chris Sale has to fix his mechanics before his next start in the AL Division Series.Sale struck out eight over 4 2/3 innings in his final tuneup before the Baltimore Orioles salvaged a split of Wednesday’s day-night doubleheader with a 10-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox.“This is what these starts have been for — building blocks Curtis Granderson Jersey ,” Sale said. “I feel like I’ve gotten enough work in and gotten my pitch count up enough to where I’ll be ready for it.”But the lefty needs to correct his delivery and the drop-off in his command and velocity, which mostly was in the low 90 mph range.“As soon I took him out, he was up in the video room,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “It seems like there’s something mechanically going on. He’s not flying his hips the way he usually does. We don’t have too much time.”Boston won the opener 19-3, dealing the Orioles a franchise-record 112th loss. The Red Sox were 16-3 against Baltimore this year.“That was an ugly game,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “I wish we scored nine more runs and beat them 19-3. It’s a crazy game. It’s a great club over there.”A major league-best 107-52, Boston opens the Division Series at home Oct. 5 against the New York Yankees or Oakland.Sale left after giving up Adam Jones‘ go-ahead, RBI double that made it 3-2 in the fifth. He threw 92 pitches, allowing three runs and four hits.Sale was limited to one start in six weeks because of left shoulder inflammation but has gradually built up his pitch count in four outings. He had control trouble early, hitting two batters on sliders in the first inning as he allowed two runs.Trey Mancini had a tiebreaking two-run single off Matt Barnes (6-4) in a three-run seventh and drove in three runs. Tanner Scott (3-2) worked 2 2/3 innings of one-run relief, and Paul Fry pitched three hitless innings for his second save.In the opener, J.D. Martinez had three of Boston’s season-high 22 hits, including a three-run homer that brought his major league-leading RBIs total to 127. The Orioles (46-112) broke the franchise loss mark set by the 1939 St. Louis Browns went 43-111.“Man , he doesn’t leave anyone for no one,” Xander Bogaerts said in mock anger after driving in four runs to reach 100 RBIs for the first time in his career and lead Boston to a 19-3 win.The Red Sox had five homers and nine doubles and matched their biggest scoring output this season. The 14 extra-base hits were the most in the majors this year and the most for Boston since 1950.In the makeup of Tuesday’s rainout, David Price (16-7) settled down after an early stumble in his final start before the playoffs. He allowed three runs — all in the second inning — six hits and three walks, striking out six before leaving with a 10-3 lead after five.“Probably I was one pitch from getting taken out of that game,” said Price, who is expected to start Game 2 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees or Oakland. “To reel it back in … was big.”Rafael Devers had four hits and six RBIs, including two homers, and Mookie Betts had two hits to raise his major league-best batting average to .346. Betts also stole a base, making him the second player in Red Sox history with at least 30 homers and 30 stolen bases in a season.Ryan Meisinger (2-1) got just one out in his first start since he was a sophomore at Radford University, allowing five runs and four hits.SURPRISE VISITORRed Sox TV color analyst Jerry Remy visited the booth and was on the air briefly because “he wanted to thank the fans” for the cards and letters as he undergoes cancer treatment again.The 65-year-old Remy has had numerous reoccurrences with the disease. He was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008.He plans to return in a limited role next season.“I think the best way to describe it is: I’m not retiring,” he said. “But, they’ll be limitations. I’m not going to travel anymore.”MILESTONESBogaerts’ 22 homers also is a personal best. … Martinez’s previous career high for RBIs was 104, last year. … Martinez’s 42d homer tied Dick Stuart (1963) for the most by a player in his first year with the Red Sox. … Devers’ six RBIs was a career high.EMERGENCY PITCHEROrioles infielder Jace Peterson pitched the eighth in the first game Yangervis Solarte Jersey , throwing mostly in the 90 mph range. He gave up four runs and six hits, but he could have gotten out of it with less damage if he had remembered to cover first on a grounder to the right side. Two other hits barely eluded the fielders, including one that went off second baseman Corban Joseph’s glove.Peterson struck out Christian Vazquez to end the inning.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: INF Eduardo Nunez, who hasn’t played since Sept. 19 due to hamstring soreness, ran in the outfield with a team athletic trainer watching between games. Cora said he’ll DH Friday and play third on Sunday.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP David Hess (3-10, 5.14 ERA) is slated to start the opener against Houston Thursday. RHP Gerrit Cole (15-5, 2.92) is set to go for the AL West champs.Red Sox: After an off-day, RHP Rick Porcello (17-7, 4.33) is scheduled to pitch the first of three games Friday against the Yankees.
