TORONTO (AP) — St. Louis native Max Scherzer won his sixth consecutive decision, Victor Martinez hit a two-run homer and the Detroit Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-5 on Monday night.

The Parkway Central High School and University of Missouri product has not lost in eight starts this season. His season-opening winning streak is the longest by a Tigers pitcher since Jeremy Bonderman won eight straight in 2007.

Scherzer (6-0) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings, matching his shortest start of the year. He walked three and struck out five.

Martinez went 3 for 4 with three RBIs and Austin Jackson had four RBIs for the Tigers, who have won six of seven to even their record at 18-18.

Toronto lost for the seventh time in nine games and dropped a season-high five games below .500.
