Drew Smyly threw a complete game two-hitter, and both Evan Longoria and Wil Myers homered as the Tampa Bay Rays started their three-game series in Toronto with a 8-0 whitewashing of the Blue Jays.
Smyly (8-10) only allowed a leadoff single by Jose Reyes in the first, and a third-inning base hit to Steve Tolleson, retiring the final 19 Blue Jays hitters in a row.
Tampa Bay opened the scoring in the second when Evan Longoria led off the inning against Marcus Stroman with his 16th home run of the year.
The Rays tacked on in the fourth thanks to an RBI double by Kevin Kiermaier, scoring Wil Myers, who walked, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch by Stroman.
James Loney helped make it 3-0 an inning later, as after Matt Joyce doubled and Longoria drew a walk, he reached on a throwing error by Tolleson on the back end of a possible double play, allowing Joyce to score.
Tampa Bay blew the game open in the sixth, as Curt Casali and Kiermaier each singled to start the inning, with Casali scoring on a base hit by Desmond Jennings to chase Stroman (7-5).
Ben Zobrist then greeted Aaron Loup with a single that scored Kiermaier. Joyce's fielder's choice loaded the bases for Longoria, who brought in Jennings and Zobrist with a double into the left-field corner.
Myers finished the scoring in the eighth, launching his sixth homer of the year, the first since going on the disabled list on June 1.
