Once again, Alex Colome failed to close the door.

The Toronto Blue Jays got to Colome Sunday, and as a result won their first set of back-to-backs of the year. It was the second blown save of the year for Colome.

The Blue Jays rallied to win 3-1.

Tampa Bay had taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the seventh on Daniel Robertson's squeeze play that brought home Logan Morrison.

It might have been enough, but Colome faltered again. He came on with one out in the seventh and Darwin Barney on second, and immediately gave up a double to Jose Bautista. Singles by Russell Martin and Ezequiel Carrera brought home two more runs to win the game.

Archer started and pitched 7 1/3 innings for the Rays.

Tampa Bay now travels to Florida as Jake Odorizzi pitches against Wei-Yin Chen.
