The Toronto Blue Jays slugged eight homers Saturday, getting two apiece from Aaron Hill and J.P. Arencibia in a 17-11 victory over the slumping Tampa Bay Rays.
Jose Bautista, Adam Lind, Edwin Encarnacion and Lyle Overbay also connected for the Blue Jays, whose 175 homers are the most in the majors. Bautista's shot was his major league-best 34th of the season.
It was the most homers in a single game for the Blue Jays since they hit a major league-record 10 against Baltimore on Sept. 14, 1987. Toronto scored in each of the first seven innings and set season highs in runs and hits (20).
The eight homers are the most allowed in a single game by the Rays, whose losing streak reached a season-high four games.
