The good news for the Detroit Tiger is that last night’s rainout means they won’t have to face the red-hot Blue Jays again until late June. Their game will be made up June 27.

Toronto lost three straight to the Tigers from May 7-9, but has won six straight since, including Monday’s 4-2 victory.

The Blue Jays offence has been the key to the streak — averaging seven runs per game — and they have done it without Adam Lind, who has been out with a bad back.

Lind is hitting .313 in 32 games, and his 27 RBIs are tied for the team lead with Jose Bautista. He had hoped to return to the Toronto lineup in Detroit, but sustained a setback Monday and was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to May 8.

“He was taking batting practice and it tightened up on him again,” Toronto manager John Farrell said. “We’re going to send him down to Florida to our extended spring camp and let him work this out. The good news is that we’re already half way into the 15-day period.”

The Blue Jays replaced Lind on the roster with one of their top prospects, Eric Thames. The 24-year-old was in his first year at triple-A Las Vegas, where he was hitting .342.
