TORONTO (AP) - Torii Hunter drove in the tiebreaking run with a two-out infield single in the eighth inning, and the Detroit Tigers rallied from a 4-0 deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 on Tuesday.

Hunter had four singles and Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run home run, his 26th, as the Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak.

Colby Rasmus homered and drove in four runs for the Blue Jays, who failed to extend their seven-game home winning streak.

Omar Infante singled off Neil Wagner (1-3) to begin the eighth, moving to second on Alex Avila's sacrifice bunt and taking third on Austin Jackson's deep fly ball. Hunter followed with a comebacker that bounced off Wagner and rolled to shortstop Jose Reyes, whose throw to first was too late to get Hunter.

Al Alburquerque (1-1) worked one inning for the win, just the second for Detroit in its past eight games.

Drew Smyly pitched the eighth and Joaquin Benoit finished in the ninth for his sixth save in as many chances.

Cabrera, who came in with a major league-leading .369 batting average, went 1 for 3 with three RBIs and two walks, one intentional. With 26 homers, he's second in the majors behind Baltimore's Chris Davis.

The Blue Jays reached Tigers starter Doug Fister for a four-run, bat-around first. Jose Bautista hit an RBI single, Rasmus followed with a two-run double and Josh Thole drove in a run with an infield hit.

The Tigers responded with a six-run second, sending 11 men to the plate. Infante doubled home a run, Alex Avila had a two-run double and Cabrera homered.

For the second straight start, Toronto's Chien-Ming Wang failed to make it out of the second. Wang allowed base hits to the first four batters and was replaced after Victor Martinez singled for the seventh hit of the inning.

Making his fifth start for the Blue Jays, Wang allowed six runs and eight hits in 1 2-3 innings, walked one and struck out one. He gave up seven runs and six hits over 1 2-3 in a loss at Boston last week.

Detroit's lead was short-lived. Bautista drew a two-out walk in the bottom half and Rasmus followed with a tying homer to center field, his 15th.

Fister settled down after that, retiring 13 of the next 14 batters and surrendering just a leadoff single to Bautista in the fifth.

Fister matched a season high by allowing six runs and seven hits in six innings. The right-hander, who has won just once in his past nine starts, walked one and struck out four.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was ejected in the ninth for arguing with plate umpire Alan Porter, his fourth ejection of the season.

NOTES: Detroit RHP Anibal Sanchez is expected to come off the disabled list Saturday to start at Cleveland. Sanchez has been out since June 16 with a sore right shoulder. ... Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion (left hamstring) and Adam Lind (back) were held out of the lineup for the second straight game. Munenori Kawasaki started at DH. ... Toronto 3B Brett Lawrie (left ankle) was supposed to play a rehab game with Class-A Dunedin on Tuesday, but it was rained out. Instead, Lawrie will play for Class-A Lansing on Thursday. ... Blue Jays RHP Brandon Morrow (forearm) is pain-free and throwing on flat ground, GM Alex Anthopoulos said. Morrow has been out since June 1 and is not expected back until late July or early August.
