FRED GOODALL, AP Sports Writer

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — J.P. Arencibia hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Fernando Rodney and the Toronto Blue Jays completed their comeback from a seven-run deficit, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 on Monday night.

Evan Longoria hit his third career grand slam, helping Tampa Bay build a 7-0 lead that Jeremy Hellickson and four Rays relievers failed to protect before a season-low crowd of 9,952 at Tropicana Field.

Colby Rasmus and Mark DeRosa also hit two-run homers for Toronto.
