Tigers fall to Blue Jays 5-4

Pillar's HR snaps tie as Jays top Tigers

Then it was left fielder Steve Pearce who followed him into the sick bay, exiting before the start of the third inning after experiencing lower-back tightness.

Mahtook went 1-for-4 out of the fifth spot on Friday night, but he'll move up three spots to bat in the second on Saturday.

Earlier in the game Nicholas Castellanos hit a grand slam so the Tigers had a grand slam and triple play in the same game.

Pillar broke a 2-all tie with a leadoff drive against Warwick Saupold (3-2) in the sixth, helping Toronto snap a three-game losing streak against Detroit. With runners on first and second, Kevin Pillar lined a grounder to rookie third baseman Jeimer Candelario. Ian Kinsler took the throw and then relayed to Efren Navarro at first, where the throw beat Pillar by a half a step.


It was the first time the Tigers completed a triple play since August 1, 2001 against the Seattle Mariners, according to the Tigers public relations staff.

Kinsler then drilled a solo home-run shot off Danny Barnes in the seventh that proved critical to the Detroit win, bringing the score to 5-2.

Jose Bautista crushed a solo home run and Richard Urena hit the first homer of his career, both in the eighth inning, for Toronto (64-77).
