Hernandez homers twice as Toronto beats Detroit 8-2
(TORONTO) – Teoscar Hernandez homered in consecutive at bats to give the Toronto Blue Jays back-to-back wins for the first time in three weeks. Hernandez hit his first two home runs of the season, Darwin Barney had four hits and the Blue Jays beat Detroit 8-2 Sunday to assure the Tigers of just their second losing season in a decade. Toronto had not won consecutive games since Aug. 16 and 17 against Tampa Bay. Hernandez, who played one game in April and then was brought up from the minors on Sept. 1, hit a two-run drive in the fourth and a three-run homer in the fifth, both off Anibal Sanchez (3-4). Detroit dropped to 60-82 with its eighth loss in 10 games this month. The Tigers' only other losing record since 2008 was 74-87 two years ago. J.A. Happ (8-10) allowed two runs and five hits in six innings. Ian Kinsler hit a two-run homer for the Tigers, who are 2-8 in September. Kinsler's 17th homer was his first this season that wasn't a solo shot. Sanchez (3-4) gave up seven runs and a season-high 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings. He is winless in his last five starts and 0-3 with a 9.31 ERA in four career starts at Toronto.
