DETROIT (AP) -- Justin Verlander remained winless in four starts since his return from the disabled list, allowing seven runs as his ERA ballooned to 6.75 ERA during the Detroit Tigers' 10-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Jose Bautista and Justin Smoak homered in a six-run fifth inning against the 2011 AL Cy Young Award winner and MVP. Verlander (0-4) gave up seven hits and two walks in five innings, striking out five. He needed 94 pitches to get 15 outs. Detroit reached the midpoint of the season at 41-40, its poorest record since a 39-42 mark for the first half in 2012. Marco Estrada (6-4) improved to 5-1 in his last seven starts, allowing two runs and five hits in five innings. Roberto Osuna got four outs for his third save.
