Tulowitzki powers Blue Jays past Tigers 5-4

--

TORONTO - The only thing consistent about the Toronto Blue Jays is that they keep winning.

Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki had a pair of RBI singles, including a tie-breaking hit in the bottom of the eighth inning, as the Blue Jays rallied past the Detroit Tigers 5-4 on a muggy Thursday night.

Toronto has won six straight but not without some struggles, like stranding 14 runners on base against Detroit.

"That's how winning streaks start, that's how they continue," said Tulowitzki after the game. "It's a different guy every night, you get good pitching, you play good defence, mix it in with some timely hitting.

"I think that's the recipe you'll hear teams talk about when they're on a winning streak."

All-star third baseman Josh Donaldson had two hits and two runs for the Blue Jays (49-39). Canadian Michael Saunders, who hopes to be voted into the all-star game by fans in an online ballot, was 2 for 4 with three runs and a run batted in.

Drew Hutchison (1-0) pitched six innings, striking out seven but giving up three runs on six hits in his first Major League Baseball start since April 24 when he struck out five over 5 2/3 innings in Toronto's 6-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. Brett Cecil, Jason Grilli and Roberto Osuna each pitched an inning of relief, with Cecil giving up a run.

Hutchison was pitching on Thursday in place of Marco Estrada, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sore back on Wednesday.

Justin Upton and Nick Castellanos each hit a home run for Detroit (45-41). Former Cy Young winner Justin Verlander (8-6) went 5 2/3 innings with five strikeouts but allowed six hits and two runs. Shane Greene, Justin Wilson, Alex Wilson all came out of the Tigers bullpen. Justin Wilson took the loss, while Alex Wilson was charged with the blown save.

"It was a battle," said Verlander of the potent Blue Jays lineup. "Those guys, one through nine, really fought me. I was able to get out if some jams there but obviously, ideally I'd like to go deeper in the game."

Tulowitzki hit an RBI single in the eighth inning, scoring Donaldson and Saunders and moving Russell Martin to third base. …
