TORONTO - Blue Jays left-hander Ryan Borucki delivered another strong outing in just the second major league start of his career. But for a second straight time, he came up short of a win.

Borucki struck out eight batters and allowed two runs over seven innings of work in his home debut Monday, but the effort was spoiled by a 3-2 loss in 10 innings to the Detroit Tigers.

The 24-year-old Borucki made his MLB debut last week, allowing two runs over six innings in a loss to the defending champion Astros in Houston. Manager John Gibbons said he was impressed with both starts.

"Down in Houston he got into some jams and came through ... today they started rolling out some hits and then he just kicked it in against a team that can hit left-handed pitching," Gibbons said.

Blue Jays SS Ryan Goins' RBI single in the top of the 10 th inning off Francisco Liriano secured a 4-3 win over the Astros on Saturday.

"It says a lot, he looked like he was in control, didn't ever panic. Another impressive outing for Borucki."

Jose Iglesias drove in Niko Goodrum for the winning run in the 10th inning. Goodrum hit a one-out triple off Blue Jays reliever Seunghwan Oh (4-3), and Iglesias followed with a sacrifice fly to right field to put the Tigers ahead.

Oh was thrust into relief for the third time in the last four games.

"Those guys are never going to be perfect, you wish they were," Gibbons said. "(Oh's) been pitching really well, they just hit it in the right spot."

Blaine Hardy recorded three outs in the bottom of the 10th for the save. Hardy replaced reliever Buck Farmer after a leadoff single from Lourdes Gurriel Jr.

Detroit starter Mike Fiers allowed just one run and three hits while striking out five batters over eight innings of work.

"It was a great performance," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said of his starter.

The Tigers (38-48) salvaged a split of the four-game series after dropping the first two games to the Blue Jays (39-45) on Friday and Saturday. Sunday's win snapped a season-high 11-game slide for Detroit.

"That losing streak was a little bit tough on this clubhouse," Hardy said. "Now that we have two wins in a row, I think we're back to where we need to be."

Borucki's eight strikeouts tied Roy Halladay for the second most by a Blue Jays pitcher in their home debut. Jose Nunez holds the record with 11.

But Borucki said he models his game after another former Toronto starter — Mark Buehrle.

"He works fast, just attacks the zone with all his pitches," said Borucki, a native of Mundelein, Ill., north of Chicago where Buehrle spent most of his career. "I got to watch him a lot growing up as a White Sox fan so I did take a lot of parts of his game and put them into mine."

The Tigers will start right-hander Jordan Zimmermann (2-0, 4.35 ERA) against Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ ( 10 -3, 3.62). Saturday looked promising for the Tigers when they took a 3-0 lead in the third inning , but the Blue Jays came back to tie in the fifth.

The Tigers opened the scoring in the first inning, hitting four consecutive one-out singles. The last one, an RBI for Victor Martinez, gave Detroit a 1-0 lead.

"They just kind of ambushed me and saw the outside part of the plate," Borucki said. "Me and Luke (Maile) made a decision to start working inside a little more and then after that they had to respect the inside part of the plate."

Borucki retired 13 consecutive batters after Martinez's RBI.

Teoscar Hernandez drove in Curtis Granderson with a groundout to tie the game 1-1 in the fifth inning, but Detroit reclaimed the lead in the sixth on a fielder's choice that allowed Nicholas Castellanos to score.
