Sanchez exits early, but Jays win a series


Russell Martin drove in the winning run with a single in the eighth as the Toronto Blue Jays rallied for a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday after losing starter Aaron Sanchez to a finger injury in the first inning. Jose Bautista began the rally with his 1,000th hit as a Jay — a game-tying double off reliever Alex Colome (1-1) that nearly cleared the left-field wall. The Jays (8-17) won back-to-back games and a series for the first time this year. Sanchez, activated from the 10-day disabled list for Sunday’s game, left with a split nail on his right middle finger after the top of the first inning.
