Tigers Drop Game Against Blue Jays, 3-2

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Jose Bautista knocked in two runs to back a solid outing from Shaun Marcum as Toronto clipped Detroit, 3-2, in the second of a four-game set from Comerica Park.

Vernon Wells drove in the other for the Blue Jays, who showed no signs of slowing down following a Friday rain out and snapped a two-game slide.

Marcum (9-4) yielded eight hits and a pair of runs over 5 2/3 frames, fanning five with one walk to register his third win in four starts.

Miguel Cabrera had two hits and drove in a run for the Tigers, who lost slugger Magglio Ordonez to a fractured right ankle and second baseman Carlos Guillen to a leg injury.

Rick Porcello (4-8) gave up five hits and three runs with four walks over six innings in defeat for Detroit, which has dropped eight of its last 10 games.
