The Toronto Blue Jays (68-61) scored three-runs early, and held on for the second of back-to-back victories against the visiting Detroit Tigers (64-66).
The win came, in part because of the Jays multi-positional talent and MLB homerun leader Jose Bautista.
Bautista, who continued swinging a hot bat yesterday, hit a two-run triple in the 1st-inning off of Tigers RHP Alfredo Figaro (0-2).
The early run support supplied by Bautista have increased his offensive totals against Detroit pitching to 2hr’s and 4rbi in the first three-games of the series, with a chance for more in Sundays’ game.
On the mound, Toronto starting pitcher Brandon Morrow (10-6) seemed to gain confidence from the early lead en route to his 10th win of the season.
