There’s no stopping the Blue Jays runaway train, so signs of it slowing down.

When the Jays chugged into Motown the consensus was now they’d find out how good they are when they run up against the Tigers great starting pitching.

Well, it’s three games later and the Jays won them all, the latest a 7-3 pounding of Detroit “ace” Justin Verlander.

When Oakland came to Rogers Centre back on May 23, that was supposed to be the club’s litmus test.

So now they’ve swept three-game series from the other two division leaders and head home to meet St. Louis and Minnesota.

“Maybe we’re a good team, we’re sure playing like it,” manager John Gibbons said of the run. “It makes it fun to go to the ball park and these guys are feeling it out there. Confidence is half the battle.”

With the win, the Jays have won five in a row, 14 of their past 16 and 17 of their past 20. It was also their seventh consecutive triumph on the road and pushed their road record to 19-11. Overall they are 37-24.

“I don’t know what to tell you other than we’re playing good baseball,” Gibbons said. “When a team is confident everybody feeds off of it, everybody buys into it and everybody thrives. We beat another pretty good pitcher today.”

Although the Jays didn’t have Edwin Encarnacion in the lineup due to a bad back, it didn’t stop them from hitting home runs as in the sixth they received a two-run shot by Juan Francisco followed by a solo blast from Brett Lawrie. Melky Cabrera added a solo dinger in the ninth. It was the 10th home run of the season for all three players.

“We’re feeling good right now, we’re confident and we’re playing good baseball,” Gibbons repeated.

It was the fifth time this season the Jays have managed back-to-back shots and the muscle-flexing allowed the Jays to assume a 6-3 lead.

The reeling Tigers, meanwhile, have lost 13 of their past 17 games.

The beneficiary of the Jays power was J.A. Happ, who scattered seven hits over 6.1 innings and allowed the three runs to lift his record to 5-2.

“He battled,” catcher Erik Kratz said of Happ. “I don’t know that he had his best stuff today but it was against a really good team and he grinded it out into the seventh inning and he was able to mix all his pitches.”

Kratz had a good day yesterday guiding Happ through his outing, tossed out a runner at second attempting to steal and came through with a clutch two-run single in their three-run fourth.
