ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Marco Estrada lost his bid for a perfect game on Logan Forsythe's infield single with one out in the eighth inning, but Chris Colabello homered in the 12th to lift the Toronto Blue Jays over the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Wednesday.

Forsythe barely beat out a slow chopper to third that Josh Donaldson fielded barehanded. Donaldson's throw to first was just a hair too late.

Toronto challenged the safe call by umpire Joe West, which was confirmed after a 40-second replay review.

Tampa Bay's only other hit off Estrada was Kevin Kiermaier's two-out double in the ninth that chased the right-hander.

Colabello connected for a one-out shot to center off Brandon Gomes (1-3).

Brett Cecil (2-4) escaped a bases-loaded jam in the 11th, and Steve Delabar got three outs for his first save of the season.
