TORONTO (AP) -- Josh Donaldson hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, connecting for No. 41 this year and sending the playoff-bound Toronto Blue Jays over the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Sunday in their final regular season home game.

The Blue Jays, already set to make their first postseason appearance since 1993, moved closer to clinching the AL East title.

Donaldson tagged Steve Geltz (2-6) for Toronto's majors-leading 222nd homer this year.
