DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer in the Toronto Blue Jays' 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.

Ben Zobrist returned to the Rays lineup at designated hitter after missing three games with a stiff neck. He was 0 for 2 with a walk and two strikeouts.

Rays starter Nathan Karns, who is a candidate for the fifth spot in the rotation, walked one, struck out one and allowed three hits in 3 1-3 scoreless innings.

Encarnacion connected off reliever Josh Lueke as part of a four-run fifth inning, which included an RBI double by Colby Rasmus. It was Encarnacion's second home run of the spring.

Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie each doubled for the Blue Jays.

Tampa Bay outfield prospect Jeremy Moore hit his third home run, a solo shot off starter Marcus Stroman that went over the 30-foot batter's eye screen in centre field.
