On Friday, the Jays’ Lourdes Gurriel and the Astros’ Yuli Gurriel became the first big-league brothers to have multi-homer games on the same night. The 34-year-old Houston first baseman launched his 13th homer Sunday and is hitting .288, while his 24-year-old sibling slipped to .282 with an 0-for-4 line against the Rays.


Former Jays closer Roberto Osuna returns to the Rogers Centre for the first time since early May, when he was charged with domestic assault and suspended 75 games. He had nine saves and 2.29 ERA as an Astro heading into Sunday’s game … Ken Giles, acquired in the Osuna trade at the July deadline, is 12 for 12 in save attempts as a Jay … The Jays are 39-39 at home … Houston clinched a playoff spot Saturday.


In Tampa for three games starting Friday to close out the season.
