Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion has extended his career-long hitting streak to 24 games with a three-run homer in the first inning against Detroit.
Encarnacion's streak is the longest in the majors since Colorado's Nolan Arenado had a 28-game run in 2014.
Encarnacion connected against right-hander Buck Farmer for his 27th homer, giving Toronto a 3-0 lead on Saturday. The designated hitter has reached base safely in each of the past 29 games.
