ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Hunter Renfroe hit a grand slam and the AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays won a postseason series for the first time in 12 years, overpowering the young Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 to finish a two-game sweep of their wild-card matchup.

Renfroe's slam came during a six-run second inning against Blue Jays ace Hyun Jin Ryu.

The top-seeded Rays also got a strong pitching performance from Tyler Glasnow, who allowed two runs and six hits over six innings.

Tampa Bay will face the New York Yankees in the division series.
