Jays starter JA Happ was charged with six runs on six hits including a pair of homers over five frames before Gavin Floyd gave up three and Drew Storen two. Toronto had nothing going at the plate with three hits and four bases on balls with Michael Saunders smacking a triple while Darwin Barney singled twice.

The Tigers have now won four of five after Monday’s one sided affair where not one thing went wrong in any area.

JD Martinez drove in two while Ian Kinsler and Nick Castellanos scored five times. The Tigers have scheduled Matt Boyd for Tuesday’s outing against visiting Toronto.

The Toronto Blue Jays return to the Rogers Centre after an eight-game road trip, having gone 6-2, outscoring their opponents 67–35 in the process.

Entering a weekend series against the Detroit Tigers, the Blue Jays are looking to add to their 1.5-game lead in the AL East with victories against a scuffling Tigers squad that has taken losses in six of their last seven outings.

Toronto (71-56) totaled 54 runs while batting .347 in a five-game win streak that ended with Thursday’s 4-1 defeat to Texas. The Blue Jays went 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position while nearly getting shut out for the first time in seven weeks.

Edwin Encarnacion saved his team from that fate with an RBI double in the eighth inning that extended his hit streak to 22 games, the longest in the majors this season. The Blue Jays had their division lead against the idle New York Yankees cut to 1 1/2 games after wrapping up a 6-2 road trip.

Toronto, easily the MLB leader with 689 runs and the winner in 21 of 26, will try to get back on track in its first matchup against Matt Boyd (1-4, 7.04 ERA). The left-hander was traded from the Blue Jays to Detroit on July 30 in the David Price deal.

The Tigers (60-67) have continued to struggle in close games lately and fell 2-0 to the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday. Detroit has dropped six of seven, with five losses by two runs or fewer.

Detroit took two of three from visiting Toronto in early July and dealt R.A. Dickey an 8-3 defeat in the middle game of the series. The knuckleballer gave up five runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Detroit Tigers (48-52) at Tampa Bay Rays (51-51) — 12:10 PM ET

Tropicana Field — St. Petersburg, FL

(foxsports.com)-Even when they’ve pitched well lately, neither Detroit’s Justin Verlander nor Tampa Bay’s Chris Archer can pick up a victory. It’s been a whole lot longer, though, since Verlander got one.

Wednesday’s series finale between the Tigers and Rays at Tropicana Field may be regarding who will be Archer’s catcher.

Even if Curt Casali isn’t, manager Kevin Cash could give him a first career start at designated hitter after the unheralded rookie homered four times through two games of this series. Casali appears to have taken the starting role from Rene Rivera, who is batting .176 and is 1 for 17 since the All-Star break. Casali has six homers in 20 plate appearances since the break

Archer (9-7, 2.67), meanwhile, is winless in a career-high five straight starts while going 0-3, equaling his worst losing streak. He couldn’t be blamed for not winning his two games since the break, getting no run support as he yielded three runs in 13 innings while striking out 15. The All-Star also threw 6 2-3 scoreless innings in a 12-inning loss at Yankee Stadium on July 3.

Archer is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA in three starts versus Detroit.

When We Last Met

The Detroit Tigers futility claimed another victim on Tuesday as David Pricewas hit hard by his former team. The Tampa Bay Rays had not scored more than four runs since July 8 and have now done it in back-to-back games, putting up 10 runs in the 10-2 shellacking. This drops Detroit four games under .500 and will look to avoid a sweep Wednesday afternoon.
