It was in the sixth inning that manager John Schneider's men were the most productive. With the bases loaded, Bo Bichette hit a sacrifice fly first, which gave George Springer time to cross home plate.

The next hitter, Teoscar Hernandez, allowed the other runners in place to complete their lap of the trails, he who expelled an offering from gunner Derek Law 424 feet from the plate, producing three runs that way.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. produced the only other run for the winners, with a single from the opening bout.

On the mound, starter Ross Stripling did not last long for the crowd favorites, he who was sent to the showers after four and a third innings of work. He allowed two runs on five hits and struck out five opponents, but was not involved in the decision.

Rather, it was reliever Trevor Richards (3-1), who was only on the mound for two-thirds of an inning, who saw the victory added to his record. For his part, Jordan Romano ended the Tigers' hopes of a comeback by signing his 23rd save of the season.

The Blue Jays will have a chance to wrap up this four-game series with a third win on Sunday. Jose Berrios should logically be Schneider's right-hand man on the mound and should face Garrett Hill.
