Rays-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- The Toronto Blue Jays' once-potent lineup had been failing to compensate for a struggling rotation for much of August until the finale of their recent trip.

The fading Blue Jays will try to win back-to-back contests for only the second time this month Friday night when they open a nine-game homestand with the first of three against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Toronto (65-62) led the majors with 134 homers, ranked third with a .264 average and fifth at 4.65 runs per game when it stood 1 1/2 games behind AL East-leading Baltimore on July 31.
