ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - J.A. Happ won in his first game at Tropicana Field since a scary injury three months ago and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 on Saturday.
Happ (3-2), who suffered a skull fracture and sprained right knee when he fell to the ground after getting hit with a liner by Desmond Jennings on May 7, allowed two runs and five hits over 5 1-3 innings. It was his third start overall since returning from the disabled list.
It was Happ's first victory since beating Kansas City on April 12.
Adam Lind homered twice for the Blue Jays. Jose Bautista hit his 28th homer of the season.
Happ retired nine in a row before Jason Bourgeois opened the fourth with a bunt single down the first base line.
