TORONTO -- After the final out, thats when things really heated up between the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.Both benches and bullpens cleared after the Blue Jays wrapped up a 3-2 win Monday night, and the skirmish got settled without anyone throwing punches.After Steven Souza Jr. hit a liner to center for the last out, he traded words with Russell Martin, misunderstanding the Toronto catchers praise for his hard-hit drive as criticism.The situation escalated when Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki joined the fray with some choice words for Souza.Troy decided to jump in and say some things that werent really necessary, Souza said.Martin said Tulowitzki kind of came in there and just kind of blew up in (Souzas) face.Cooler heads soon prevailed, and Souza sorted things out with Martin before everyone left the field.Were fine, Martin said. Theres no bad blood or anything.Ezequiel Carrera connected for a tiebreaking, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning. Jose Bautista added a two-run homer as the Blue Jays improved to 3-7 in September and moved one game ahead of Baltimore in the AL wild-card race.The Orioles lost 12-2 at division-leading Boston. The Red Sox are two games ahead of Toronto.Jason Grilli (5-3) pitched one inning and Roberto Osuna got his 32nd save.Carrera replaced Darwin Barney to face incoming reliever Brad Boxberger (3-1). Carrera homered on the right-handers first pitch.He did it in a big way, manager John Gibbons said.Boxberger said he was surprised Carreras ball ended up a home run.It was down and away, good pitch, Boxberger said. When a ball you think is just going to be a lazy fly ball all of a sudden goes out you kind of just have to laugh it off.Carrera was the batter the last time Toronto got a pinch-hit homer, on July 25, 2015, at Seattle.Blue Jays left-hander Francisco Liriano opened the game by giving up a leadoff single to Logan Forsythe, then retired the next 14 batters. Souza broke the streak with a two-out walk in the fifth but Liriano fanned Richie Shaffer to end the inning.He was cruising, Souza said of Liriano. He was throwing everything kind of where he wanted to, down in the zone.Bautista gave Toronto a 2-0 lead with a two-out homer off Jake Odorizzi in the sixth. For Bautista, it was his first extra-base hit since homering at Baltimore on Aug. 31.Evan Longoria homered on Lirianos first pitch in the seventh and Brad Miller followed by homering on a 1-0 slider. It was the third time this season the Rays have hit back-to-back homers and the second time theyve done it on their current road trip.TO ERR IS...Toronto has made at least one error in a season-worst six consecutive games. Its their longest streak since a seven-game run in 2011.MILESTONE KOdorizzi recorded his 500th career strikeout by fanning Melvin Upton Jr. to end the second.TRAINERS ROOMRays: 1B Logan Morrison will miss the rest of the season after injuring his left wrist in Sundays win at New York. He will return to Tampa on Wednesday for further tests.Blue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson got the day off. Gibbons said the reigning AL MVP is banged up and needed a day to regroup. Donaldson is hitless in a career-worst seven games, going 0 for 23 with seven strikeouts in that span.UP NEXTLHP Drew Smyly (6-11, 5.05) starts against Blue Jays RHP Marcus Stroman (9-7, 4.55) on Tuesday. Smyly is 3-0 with a 1.23 ERA in five career games at Rogers Centre, including three starts. Stroman is winless in four starts, including an 8-3 loss at Tampa Bay on Sept. 2. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. . Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team. "Martyn is a highly-respected coach with experience at the top levels in England," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson. . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. FORT WORTH, Texas -- Helio Castroneves fourth IndyCar victory at Texas was much different than his other ones. Instead of driving flat out and side by side with other cars at more than 210 mph almost every lap on the high-banked, 1 1/2-mile track, this time it was about managing tires along with a different aero package providing less downforce. And just holding on. "A lot of cars were going forwards and a lot of cars were going backwards," Castroneves said. "Because of that, it just changed and you had to be ahead of the game." Team Penske and Castroneves nailed the setup and their strategy Saturday night to finally get their first victory this season. Castroneves led the final 132 laps and finished 4.7 seconds ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay. His other three Texas victories -- in 2004, 2006 and 2009 -- were by a combined margin of just over 1 second. "Oh man, that was interesting. ... It was like, at times, a race against yourself, just to save the tires and keep yourself off the wall. It was just a very challenging race," Hunter-Reay said. "I was searching around for grip, getting into a rhythm, but definitely have had the full range of racing here at Texas Motor Speedway from 2008 to now." The top five finishers were Chevrolets, and those were the only cars to finish on the lead lap. Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan was third, followed by Ed Carpenter and Marco Andretti. Hunter-Reay led 35 of the 228 laps, all of his up front in the first half of the race. "Its so difficult to get the package exactly right with the downforce and the tires and the degradation of the tires," he said. "As a series were working toward that." Texas, always known for some of the fastest and closest IndyCar races, was the first of four consecutive oval events for IndyCar. The Milwaukee Mile is next. Kanaan, a past winner at Texas, was already ready to talk about the package for next year in the Lone Star State after what he described as an exciting and long night. "I dont know what happened behind me, but I can tell you that I had my hands full," Kanaan said. Asked what its like on the high-speed track when the tires start going away like they are designed to do, Kanaan responded, "Its extremely uncomfortable.dddddddddddd Because here, youre along for the ride." Hunter-Reay described a lack of predictability about what will happen without tires and with less downforce. "The car gives you a feeling and then it does something different," he said. "It does not want to get into the corner at all. ... The car does not want to come up out of the bank. Once it does, the rear just snaps loose, and I had some major ones, corrections. Im sure everybody did." Castroneves held on for his 28th career victory, and became the seventh winner in eight IndyCar races this season. He also took over sole possession of the points lead, breaking a tie with Andretti, who dropped 22 points back and is still without a victory. Will Power, Castroneves teammate who was the polesitter, finished seventh. Penske got his eighth IndyCar win at Texas, along three NASCAR victories there (two Sprint Cup, one Nationwide). Chip Ganassis team, which has won four IndyCar races at Texas, is still looking for a win anywhere this season. Dario Franchitti was the highest-finishing Honda in sixth, while Ganassi teammate Scott Dixon was 23rd in the 24-car field after finishing only 61 laps because of an apparent gear shaft problem. Andretti led the first 53 laps after starting on the front row, before giving up the lead on a green-flag stop. He led only four more laps before Castroneves went high around him late on lap 96 and stayed in front. "The car was absolutely on rails," Castroneves said. Before Oriol Servia spun out right in front of him on lap 113, Castroneves had built a 14-second lead over defending race winner Justin Wilson. Castroneves was able to get around Servias car without any issue, and his ensuing stop under caution ended a sequence of 61 laps without a stop -- after an early 54-lap run. "We knew we wanted to run as long as we could, and the tires were so good when we took them off the first time, we didnt have to worry," Penske said. "We just stayed steady the whole time. ... Helio did a great job. He drove all night long and coming up on cars that are 10-15 miles an hour slower and is able to maintain his speed and the distance between cars behind him." ' ' '
