Juan Francisco and Brett Lawrie hit consecutive home runs in the sixth inning off Justin Verlander, and the Toronto Blue Jays completed a three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 7-3 victory Thursday.

Casey Janssen got the final out for his 10th save in 11 chances. He needed only one pitch to retire Nick Castellanos on a line drive to left with two on.


Melky Cabrera also homered for the Blue Jays.


Verlander (6-5) allowed six runs - five earned - and eight hits in seven innings. He walked four and struck out four. Toronto scored three runs each in the fourth and sixth.
