Hunter's decisive RBI lifts Tigers over Blue Jays

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO (AP) -- Torii Hunter drove in the tiebreaking run with a two-out infield single in the eighth inning, and the Detroit Tigers rallied from a 4-0 deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 on Tuesday.

Hunter had four singles and Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run home run, his 26th, as the Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak.

Colby Rasmus homered and drove in four runs for the Blue Jays, who failed to extend their seven-game home winning streak.

Omar Infante singled off Neil Wagner (1-3) to begin the eighth, moving to second on Alex Avila's sacrifice bunt and taking third on Austin Jackson's deep fly ball. Hunter followed with a comebacker that bounced off Wagner and rolled to shortstop Jose Reyes, whose throw to first was too late to get Hunter.
