      Blue Jays defeat Tigers 8-3

      TORONTO (AP) - R.A. Dickey won again, Jose Reyes and Mark DeRosa homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Detroit Tigers 8-3 on Monday for their seventh straight home win.

      The Blue Jays delighted a sellout crowd of 45,766 on Canada Day with their 11th victory in 13 games at Rogers Centre.

      Coming off his two-hit shutout against Tampa Bay, Dickey (8-8) was sharp and won for the third time in four starts. The knuckleballer allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out four and walking one.

      Reyes hit a leadoff shot in the third against Tigers rookie Jose Alvarez (1-2). For Reyes, it was his third homer of the year and second in two days.

      DeRosa added a three-run drive in the fourth off reliever Luke Putkonen.
