St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Jeremy Hellickson cooled off baseball's hottest team, firing seven shutout innings to enable the Tampa Bay Rays to stop the Toronto Blue Jays' 11-game win streak with a 4-1 triumph at Tropicana Field.

Hellickson (6-3) limited a Toronto offense that averaged 6.4 runs over the club's franchise record-tying unbeaten stretch to just one hit -- a J.P. Arencibia single in the second inning -- to improve to 4-1 in June. The right- hander did issue four walks after going four straight starts and a total of 26 innings without one.

He got all the support he needed from the trio of James Loney, Wil Myers and Sam Fuld, who socked back-to-back-to-back solo home runs off Esmil Rogers in the bottom of the second.

Myers finished 2-for-4 in the rookie's first-ever game at Tropicana Field, with Luke Scott contributing an RBI double to help the Rays take the opener of this three-game set.

Rogers (3-3) surrendered all four Tampa runs on seven hits over six innings of work.
