ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Alex Cobb turned an impressive breaking ball into his second straight strong performance. Cobb pitched seven solid innings, helping the Tampa Bay Rays keep up their home dominance of Toronto in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. "That was the best curve Ive seen all year from any of our pitchers," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "To both righties and lefties, it was quick, it was hard, there was no hump in it. It was absolutely great, and I think that set up the whole game for him." Cobb (6-8) allowed one run and five hits, striking out seven. The right-hander was coming off a start last Wednesday when also gave up one run over seven innings in a 4-1 victory against Oakland. "The curveball was probably the best it has been all year," Cobb said. "I was able to throw it for a strike when I wanted, out of the zone when I wanted, and it had some good bite to it." The Rays clinched their 16th consecutive home series win over Toronto by winning the first two games of the three-game set. The longest such streak in AL history is 19, held by the New York Yankees against the St. Louis Browns from 1946-51. After Joel Peralta fanned all three batters he faced in the eighth, Fernando Rodney got his 34th save despite giving up David Coopers one-out, solo homer in the ninth. Coopers shot stopped Rodneys scoreless streak at 22 innings, one short of James Shields team record set in 2011. Evan Longoria went 0 for 4, including three strikeouts, in his second game back as the Rays designated hitter after sitting out 85 games because of a partially torn left hamstring. The Blue Jays did get some good news postgame about injured slugger Jose Bautista, who had an MRI exam earlier in the day on his injured left wrist. Toronto manager John Farrell said Bautista has been cleared to take dry swings and hit off a tee on Monday. "At that point, its still proceed with his tolerance to any kind of discomfort," Farrell said. "This will be a cautious approach and well monitor it daily. Hopefully with some additional time down, hell get back into the swing of things. Looking forward to getting him back, making progress towards eventual activation." Bautista has been on the disabled list since July 17. The MRI exam showed improvement, but some inflammation in one small spot. Carlos Villanueva (6-2), who rejoined the team Tuesday after tending to a personal matter, gave up three runs and six hits in six innings for the Blue Jays. Toronto has lost eight of 11, scoring just 29 runs over the stretch. "We seem to struggle for some reason playing in this ballpark." Villanueva said. B.J. Upton hit an RBI double and scored when Longoria grounded into a double play, and Jeff Keppinger hit a run-scoring single as the Tampa Bay took a 3-1 lead during the third. The Blue Jays went ahead 1-0 on Edwin Encarnacions sacrifice fly in the third. Longoria struck out with a runner on a second and two outs in the first. He had one hit in three at-bats, and a sacrifice fly, in his return in Tuesday nights 4-1 win over the Blue Jays. NOTES: Rays DH Luke Scott (oblique) could be ready to start a minor league rehab assignment in the next few days. ... Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie missed his fourth consecutive game because of a rib cage injury. Lawrie, who had an MRI exam Tuesday night that showed some oblique inflammation, said he feels a lot better. ... Rays RHP Jeff Niemann (broken right fibula) allowed one run over 2 2-3 innings in his first start for Class A Charlotte. ...

Larsen wants to pay for their education by auctioning off a prized possession -- the uniform he wore when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.The Canadiens havent racked up many goals over their losing streak, but scoring wasnt an issue the last time they faced the Wild. Montreal hopes to avoid matching its longest losing streak of the season tonight as it hosts equally-struggling Minnesota. You can listen to the game live at 7pm et on TSN Radio 990 at TSN.ca/Montreal. It will mark the first home game for forward Blake Geoffrion, who will wear the bleu, blanc et rouge beneath the banners for the retired numbers of his great-grandfather Howie Morenz and grandfather Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion. Blake chose to wear No. 57 in his first game with the team on Tuesday, paying homage to Boom Booms No. 5 and Morenzs No. 7. "Its an honour to wear the Geoffrion name on the back and to be a part of this family and the tradition here," Geoffrion told reporters on Wednesday. "Pressure comes along with that but Im my own player. Ill just play as hard as I can." The Canadiens have dropped five straight in regulation and sit last in the Eastern Conference with 58 points. They have been outscored 16-5 over their current slide and are in danger of matching the season-worst 0-4-2 drought posted back on Oct. 13-24. David Desharnais scored the lone Montreal goal in a 2-1 setback to hosting Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Carey Price made 20 saves but was outdueled by Mathieu Garons 23 stops for the Lightning. "I think we had a couple of late shifts that hemmed them up into their own zone and we had some opportunities, but thats the way it goes sometimes," Canadiens head coach Ranndy Cunneyworth said.dddddddddddd"You have to credit their goaltender. He played a very good game." Montreal has won three of its past four versus Minnesota, including an 8-1 road victory in the lone meeting between the clubs last season. That seven- goal triumph featured the first hat trick of Montreal defenseman P.K. Subbans career and he also added an assist. The Wild are 2-2-0 with a tie all-time at home versus the Canadiens and come into this game with their own offensive issues. Tuesdays 4-0 loss to the Kings marked their ninth defeat in 12 games and Minnesota has been held to one goal or less in eight of their past 13. Minnesota was shut out in its first game since trading steady defenseman and the franchises all-time leader in games played, Nick Schultz, to Edmonton for the more offensive-minded blueliner Tom Gilbert. "It was nice. The first period I was trying to get my feet under me," said Gilbert, a Minnesota native. "I wish we had scored a couple more goals, but it was a good experience." Los Angeles jumped on Minnesota for three goals in the first period on Tuesday and Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom came up with just 15 saves. "We didnt create any breaks because we didnt deserve any and earn any. It was another game where we started on our heels. They took it to us and we didnt fight back," said Wild forward Kyle Brodziak. Minnesota had won three of four coming in, but sit six points back of the Stars for the eighth spot in the West.      ' ' '
