Jays Win and Tigers Lose


Derek Fisher hit a two-run homer and the Toronto Blue Jays held on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3.

Blue Jays rookie Bo Bichette set a team record with a double in eight straight games, breaking the mark of seven set by Carlos Delgado in 2000.

The 21-year-old also extended his career-opening hitting streak to 10 games.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Randal Grichuk also homered for the Blue Jays, who were winless in the last 10 series (0-9-1) against Tampa Bay before taking two of three at Tropicana Field.

Toronto went 7-3 on a 10-game road trip.

Ivan Nova pitched eight scoreless innings, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 8-1.

Nova allowed five hits, walked three and struck out one as he picked up his third win in four starts and former Tiger James McCann had three RBIs.

The White Sox took three of four games from the Tigers at Comerica Park.
