J.P. Arencibia hit a three-run double in the seventh inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Detroit Tigers 8-6 on Wednesday.
Detroit led 6-1 in the sixth, but starter Rick Porcello allowed hits to the first three batters that inning. They all eventually scored, and Toronto added four more runs the following inning. Brayan Villarreal (0-1) came on with one on and one out in the seventh and proceeded to walk three straight hitters, forcing in a run. Arencibia followed with a drive to the gap in left-center off Octavio Dotel.
Aaron Loup (1-0) pitched a scoreless sixth for the Blue Jays. Casey Janssen, the last of five Toronto relievers, pitched a perfect ninth for his second save.
