DUNEDIN, Florida (AP) - Alex Cobb tossed three scoreless innings as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Friday.

Cobb, who did not allow any runs over 1 2-3 innings in his first start against Minnesota, gave up two hits, struck out one and walked one.

The right-hander allowed back-to-back singles to Melky Cabrera and Jose Bautista in the first, but then retired eight straight batters, seven on groundballs. Cobb was pulled one batter into the fourth.

Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle made his second start of the spring. The left-hander gave up one run and four hits in three innings.

Kevin Kiermaier hit a two-run homer in the Rays fourth. Wil Myers added an RBI single in the fifth.

The game included a replay review by umpires with one out in the ninth when Toronto's Munenori Kawasaki was called out at first base. The call was confirmed.
