TORONTO -- Detroits Austin Jackson lined the first pitch from Toronto starter Esmil Rogers into right-centre field for a leadoff single on Thursday night. Robin van Persie Jersey . It was all downhill from there for the Blue Jays. Jackson hit a two-run homer and scored four runs while Tigers starter Justin Verlander threw seven shutout innings as Detroit crushed Toronto 11-1 in front of 35,978 fans at Rogers Centre. Verlander (9-5) allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out five. Jackson had four of Detroits 16 hits and Don Kelly chipped in with three runs of his own. Maicer Izturis hit a two-out single in the ninth inning to bring Josh Thole home with Torontos only run. The Blue Jays managed just six hits on the night. "We didnt play good baseball," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "Plain and simple." Toronto (41-44) fell three games under the .500 mark and deeper into the American League East basement. Detroit (46-38) won the last three games of the four-game set to hand the Blue Jays their first home series loss in over two months. "A lot of times its not who youre playing, its when youre playing them," said Tigers manager Jim Leyland. "They didnt have (Edwin) Encarnacion for most of the series, Melky Cabrera is on the DL and banged up a little bit. Im very impressed with their bullpen, they keep bringing really good arms out of the bullpen. "I look for them to have a big second half. Theyre a good team. (Jose) Reyes hasnt been back too long. Theyre going to be really good in the second half. We just got them at the right time." The Blue Jays have dropped eight of 11 since going on an 11-game winning streak through mid-June. "We were on that nice little streak and then ran into a few buzzsaws," Gibbons said. "Tonight we just didnt have anything. It just wasnt a good ball game. We fell behind, Rogers got hit around pretty good and then Verlander, hes not going to give you much. "Even when hes not on, hes not going to give you much." Verlander was certainly on for this one, his first appearance at Rogers Centre since tossing a no-hitter on May 7, 2011. The veteran right-hander breezed through the Toronto lineup over the first half of the game. He was perfect until giving up a two-out single to Encarnacion in the fourth inning. "Verlander was just locked in and when a guys locked in, you dont play around," said Tigers right-fielder Torii Hunter. With the win, the Central Division-leading Tigers moved 1 1/2 games up on the Cleveland Indians, who dropped a 10-7 decision to the Kansas City Royals. "They swing, they swing pretty good over there," Gibbons said. "Going in you figure (slugger Miguel) Cabreras not in the lineup, you kind of like to see that. But it didnt matter tonight." In the first, Andy Dirks hit an RBI double off Rogers (3-4) and moved to third on a Hunter groundout. Dirks scored on a single by cleanup hitter Prince Fielder. The Tigers tacked on two more runs in the third inning. Jackson got things started again with a single and Dirks followed with a walk. Jackson came across on a double by Hunter and Dirks moved to third. After a Fielder strikeout, Rogers made a nice play by snagging a comebacker from Victor Martinez and chasing down Dirks in no-mans land for the second out. Jhonny Peralta doubled to score Hunter and make it a 4-0 game. With two runners in scoring position, Rogers got out of the jam when Alex Avila lined out to centre field. Izturis legged out an infield hit in the fifth and moved to second when Rajai Davis drew a walk. Izturis took third base on a J.P. Arencibia sacrifice fly but Munenori Kawasaki flied out to end the threat. Rogers was pulled after giving up three straight singles to open the sixth. All three runners came around to score. Jacksons single drove in Ramon Santiago, Kelly scored on a sacrifice fly by Hunter and Jackson came across on an infield single by Fielder. "He was missing off the plate a lot so that put him into a little bit of a jam," Gibbons said. "You can see when hes good, hes flipping his off-speed stuff in there, with a good slider, the occasional curveball and some change-ups. "That big two-seam fastball has been a big pitch for him lately but he couldnt keep that on the plate." Rogers allowed 11 hits, seven earned runs and two walks while striking out four. His earned-run average rose from 3.12 to 3.84. He felt his sinker wasnt effective, possibly due to a slight difference in his delivery. "It was a little bit slow -- my arm," he said. "I watched the video after the game and I saw my arm was a little longer than it is normally. Im going to get ready for the next (game)." Reyes led off the bottom of the sixth with a sharp single to right field. Encarnacion drew a one-out walk but Adam Lind hit into an inning-ending double play. The Tigers piled on with two more runs in the eighth inning. Jackson went deep off reliever Neil Wagner for his fifth home run of the season. Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen came on for some work in the ninth but was pulled after loading the bases and then issuing a one-out walk to Dirks. Hunter hit a sacrifice fly off Aaron Loup before Fielder was retired on a groundout. Notes: The Blue Jays will close out their seven-game homestand with a weekend series against the Minnesota Twins.

Except this one came on the road. And it put the Saints on top of the so-so NFC South. Mark Ingram ran for 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns and New Orleans defeated the Carolina Panthers 28-10 on Thursday night. The Saints broke a scoreless deadlock by scoring on three straight possessions in between the second and third quarters to build a 21-7 advantage and cruised the rest of the way en route to ending their seven-game, regular-season road losing streak. Following a career-high 172 rush yards Sunday, Ingram topped the 100-yard mark again after tallying just one 100-yard rushing performance prior in his first 40 games. Drew Brees was 24-of-34 for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception and added a rushing score for the Saints (4-4), who have bounced back from a 1-3 start by winning three of their last four contests. Jimmy Graham caught seven passes for 83 yards and a score, while Kenny Stills added five receptions for 72 yards in the triumph. Junior Galette recorded two of New Orleans four sacks and its defense held Cam Newton to just 151 yards passing with an interception on just 10-of-28 efficiency. Newton carried the ball seven times for 43 yards and a touchdown for Carolina (3-5-1), which accumulated just 231 total yards. The Panthers are 1-5-1 since a 2-0 start. The first of the Saints three straight scores came at the 2:38 mark of the second quarter. Newton initially eluded some Saints pressure by moving to his right, but didnt see a converging Galette from behind as he strip-sacked him at the Carolina 4. New Orleans linebacker Curtis Lofton recovered the loose ball and Ingram followed the pulling left guard Ben Grubbs off the right side for a 3-yard TD run two snaps later. The Saints defense then forced a three-and-out and briskly traveled 85 yards in 10 plays to put another touchdown on the board right before the half. Brees hit Stills for a 17-yard completion on a 3rd-and-10 and Carolina cornerback Antoine Cason committed a pass interference on Robert Meachem in the end zone on a 3rd-and-17 from the Carolina 33.

Carolina picked up 70 yards of offense on its initial march of the third, nearly matching its first half total of 89. DeAngelo Williams took a screen pass for 30 yards on the opening play and Newton finished off the sequence with a 10-yard TD run. On the highlight-reel score, Newton spun to his left to escape from cornerback Patrick Robinsons blitz off the edge and ran away from Galette along the left sideline before diving inside the 5 and reaching the ball out inside the left pylon. The Saints answered with an elongated 6:10, 14-play, 80-yard series. Brees found Brandin Cooks for a 15-yard completion on an initial 3rd-and-9, hit Stills to pick up 12 on a 3rd-and-7 and snuck it in on fourth down to complete the drive late in the third. Graham Gano nailed a 31-yard field goal early in the fourth to get Carolina within 21-10, but the Saints drained the ensuing 7:27 off the clock prior to Ingram darting through for the back-breaking 3-yard score with 5:30 left. New Orleans turned the ball over on its first two touches, each while in Carolina territory. Panthers defensive tackle Dwan Edwards hauled in a deflected pass while the Saints were driving inside the red zone on their first sequence, and Mario Addison recovered a Brees fumble following Charles Johnsons strip-sack on their second. Carolina, though, couldnt capitalize despite driving into Saints territory on each of its first three series. Saints cornerback Corey White picked off Newton to end the Panthers third drive after Brenton Bersin dropped a pass over the middle early in the second.
