TORONTO (AP) — Troy Tulowitzki drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied to beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 Thursday night for their season-best sixth straight victory.

Tulowitzki finished 2 for 4 with a walk and three RBIs. He is batting .338 (22 for 65) with 20 RBIs in 17 games since coming off the disabled list on June 18.

Jason Grilli (3-2) pitched one inning for the win. Roberto Osuna worked the ninth for his 18th save.

Toronto trailed 4-2 after James McCann scored on Ian Kinsler’s double play groundout in the seventh, but the Blue Jays shaved the deficit to one when Tulowitzki hit an RBI single off Shane Greene in the bottom half.
