Dansby Swanson hit the go-ahead homer in the seventh and Matt Kemp had yet another big day at the plate with four RBIs as the Braves came away with a 9-5 victory over the Blue Jays on Tuesday at Rogers Centre.
Swanson broke a 5-5 tie with a solo shot off Blue Jays reliever Danny Barnes. It was Swanson's third home run of the year and just the third earned run that Barnes has allowed in 14 innings this season. The deep shot to center allowed Atlanta to win both games in the first part of this home-and-home series, and the Braves have now won four of their last five.
CLEVELAND -- The Rays entered Tuesday's game against the Indians fifth in the American League with 51 home runs. Once again, the team's power was on full display, as Tampa Bay combined to hit a season-high five homers to back starter Jake Odorizzi and defeat the Indians, 6-4, at Progressive Field.
Rays designated hitter Corey Dickerson led the way with two solo homers off Indians starter Danny Salazar. Tim Beckham connected for a two-run home run off reliever Shawn Armstrong, and Colby Rasmus and Derek Norris both added solo shots off Salazar.
