• Villanueva guides Blue Jays to victory over Rays

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 30, 2012
    Carlos Villanueva pitched six sharp innings and the Toronto Blue Jays beat slumping Tampa Bay 2-0 on Thursday night, snapping a five-game losing streak against the Rays. Pitching despite an illness, Villanueva allowed five hits all singles to win for the first time since July 27 against Detroit. Carlos Villanueva had been experiencing his first hiccup since joining the rotation in late June, but he snapped out of his recent funk and also shook aside what was described as a low-grade fever on Thursday night in a 2-0 win over the Rays at Rogers Centre. Toronto strung together a two-out rally off Rays starter Matt Moore, who allowed a pair of walks and a single, loading the bases for Kelly Johnson. The free-agent-to-be recorded his seventh quality start in 11 outings, won for the first time this month and continues to drive up his asking price for potential offseason suitors.
