DETROIT (AP) — Ian Kinsler drove in the winning run with a 10th-inning single, and the Detroit Tigers won their fifth straight game, 3-2 over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

The Tigers tied it with two runs in the ninth, spoiling an outstanding effort by Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez. The Toronto right-hander struck out a career-high 12 and took a one-hitter into the ninth inning, but he didn’t get another out as Detroit rallied.

Kinsler’s RBI double in the ninth chased Sanchez, and Miguel Cabrera’s one-out double off Roberto Osuna tied it.

The Tigers loaded the bases in the 10th with no outs against Joe Biagini (3-2), and Kinsler won it with a chopper into left field.

Justin Wilson (2-1) pitched a scoreless 10th for the win.

Kevin Pillar homered for the Blue Jays.
