(Newser) – Four different players drove in runs to back the pitching of Andy Sonnanstine and help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 Thursday night for a three-game sweep of a home-away-from-home series at Disney World. Evan Longoria tripled and had a sacrifice fly for Tampa Bay, which got two RBIs from Eric Hinske.

The Rays swept a "home" series for the first time since beating Texas three straight at Disney last May. The Rays improved to 6-0 in regular-season games they've played here in an ongoing effort to bolster fan support in the Orlando area, which is about 90 miles east of the team's domed stadium in St. Petersburg.
