TORONTO (AP) -- Victor Martinez hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the Detroit Tigers stopped Toronto's seven-game winning streak, beating the Blue Jays 3-2 on Saturday.
   Justin Upton had two hits and Andrew Romine reached base three times for the Tigers, who had lost seven of their previous nine against Toronto.
   Bruce Rondon (3-1) earned the win despite allowing a tying home run to Devon Travis in the seventh. Rondon missed the first two games of the series with flu-like symptoms.
   Justin Wilson pitched the eighth and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his 24th save.
   Martinez hit his 17th homer, a one-out drive off Jason Grilli (3-3).
