Tigers Top Blue Jays For Series Split

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Rick Porcello spun seven solid innings and Ryan Raburn belted two home runs, finishing with four RBI, as the Detroit Tigers pounded Toronto, 10-4, to salvage a split of a four-game series at Rogers Centre.

Porcello (7-11) allowed only three baserunners on two hits and an error. His lone mistake came in the sixth, when Blue Jays shortstop John McDonald homered with two out.

Detroit rookie Casper Wells supplied three RBI and Brandon Inge added a two- run homer for the Tigers, who have won seven of their last 10 games.

Toronto starting pitcher Marc Rzepczynski (1-3) gave up four runs -- three earned -- on five hits in 5 2/3 innings. Rzepczynski, who was celebrating his 25th birthday on Sunday, struck out a season-high eight batters but walked five to match his career high.
