ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Wander Franco had three RBIs, Jonathan Aranda homered and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-5 on Thursday night in the opener of a big four-game series between playoff contenders.

Randy Arozarena had three hits and drove in two runs for the Rays, who were coming off a three-game series in which they were swept by Houston and scored just twice.

“Baseball’s weird. I saw a score tonight that was a little different.” Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. “They do a good job of flushing it, getting to the next day, coming in ready to work, get better, and find a way to win.”
