June 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Tampa Bay Rays ended the Toronto Blue Jays’ 11-game Major League Baseball winning streak with a 4-1 victory fueled by three consecutive home runs during the second inning.

James Loney, rookie Wil Myers and Sam Fuld hit back-to-back-to-back blasts off Blue Jays pitcher Esmil Rogers last night at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson allowed one hit over seven scoreless innings, preventing Toronto from setting a new franchise record for consecutive wins. The Blue Jays had also won 11 straight games during the 1987 and 1998 seasons.

“Losses are never easy, but we’ve been on a nice little roll,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters. “You knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Some nights you run into really good pitching.”

Toronto’s streak was the longest since the Detroit Tigers won 12 in a row during the 2011 season.
