DETROIT -- Former Tiger Matt Joyce was awarded a home run against his former team in the first inning Sunday night after a brief review.

Joyce, the Rays' left fielder, cranked one off the right-field wall, and it was initially ruled in play. Joyce stretched it for an RBI triple, but a crew chief review, initiated by Greg Gibson, granted him a two-run homer.

The line-drive blast pushed Tampa Bay's early lead to 3-0.

Rick Porcello had a 25-inning scoreless streak entering the first inning following two shutouts in his last two starts.
