DETROIT (AP) — Michael Fulmer allowed two hits over six innings in another outstanding performance, and Justin Upton and James McCann homered to lift the Detroit Tigers to an 11-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.

Fulmer (6-1) struck out five and walked three in his third straight start without allowing a run. Detroit has won four in a row.

Detroit acquired Fulmer last year in the trade that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the New York Mets. The rookie right-hander has won four straight starts, allowing only one run over that span.

J.A. Happ (6-3) allowed six runs and six hits in five innings. McCann’s three-run homer opened the scoring in the second, and Upton added a two-run shot in the third.
